Is an anxiety based disorder characterised primarily by intrusive thoughts that produce uneasiness, apprehension, fear, worry or panic attacks; by repetitive behaviours aimed at reducing the associated anxiety; or by a combination of such obsessions and compulsions.
These compulsions literally overtake an OCD sufferer’s life and can make it virtually impossible for them to lead a normal life. They may become unable to work, hold down a relationship or may even alienate their families.
Hypnotherapy aims to change a person’s thinking so that he/she can take control of OCD. This is significant, as many OCD sufferers feel that they are being controlled by OCD. In this sense, hypnotherapy can be seen as a psychological treatment for OCD. It can help to make the distinction between what OCD sufferers feel is true and what is actually true . This can be done in two ways. Firstly, hypnotherapy can encourage you to consciously think in a different way. Secondly, it can change your thoughts and feelings on a subconscious level.
If you have a problem with OCD, the first thing to do is contact the HypnoHut and book an initial free consult with us. During this we will explain to you how it all works, what to expect. Should you decide at that point that you would wish to proceed, we will book a series of sessions and give you the ability to move beyond your problem.
