Do you check or repeat things over and over again?
Do you feel compelled to carry out certain actions ?
Do you worry obsessively about health of yourself and/or others?
Do you worry obsessively about contamination by germs or dirt?
If yes, then you may be suffering from Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD). People experiencing OCD or Obsessive Compulsive Disorder struggle with unwanted thoughts which fill their mind and threatens them if they don’t perform repetitive, sometime seemingly senseless rituals. This is not a rare group. It is estimated that in America one in forty people has OCD.
In the “Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental disorders (American Psychiatric Association 2000) OCD is classed as an anxiety disorder. It is characterized by obsessions and/or compulsions that are time consuming, distressing and/or interfere with normal routines or daily functioning.
Obsessions are persistent, unwanted thoughts, images or urges that intrude into a person’s thinking and cause excessive worry and anxiety. It could be worrying excessively about death, germs, illness or fearing causing harm to others. Compulsions are covert mental acts or overt behaviours performed repetitively to relieve or prevent the worry or anxiety created by the obsession. This could take the form of the need to continually check doors and locks or the need to repeatedly wash their hands.
Our Hypnotherapy for OCD in Singapore helps you to reduce your anxiety levels so you can move into a more positive calm state where you can feel safe and where you have more control over these thoughts and compulsions.
How can Hypnotherapy help OCD?
OCD can vary in form and severity but can become a controlling force in your life which both stems from anxiety and creates anxiety.
Solution Focused Hypnotherapy for OCD helps sufferers to overcome the OCD by focusing, not on the obsession, but on reducing the underlying anxiety which is leading to the behaviours or thought patterns. Hypnotherapy helps interrupt these patterns of repetitive behaviour and obsessional thought that are unhelpful and replaces them with ones that are helpful and positive.
