OCD – Obsessive Compulsive Disorder Therapy
In my experience (personal & professional) you can learn to take control of your OCD with hypnotherapy. I am speaking as a past sufferer of obsessive compulsive disorder. I know only too well how you can feel like you are going mad, when the truth is, you are not, in fact you are quite normal.
OCD is far more widespread than most people realise, and it can be very debilitating for a sufferer. Many celebrities are known to suffer it – David Beckham, Justin Timberlake and Megan Fox to name a few. Classed as an anxiety disorder – (DSM 5) it often seems to develop following a period of prolonged anxiety in the sufferers life.Symptoms can vary but often include ritualistic procedures such as handwashing, repeatedly having to check i.e the door is locked, but the range of symptoms can vary far more than that. The feeling of a loss of self control is something most sufferers can identify with, also the fear that if these rituals are not followed that something bad may happen to someone they love. Even that in itself can lead to even more anxiety and therefore the problem just goes around and around. This can all lead to a feeling of hopelessness, and the anxiety cycle continues.
Your GP might prescribe various medications, usually along the lines of anti-depressants, but from my experience these can either have side effects or not work at all, as taking any medication is often a lottery anyway. So what can you do to beat this? I have used hypnosis to successfully beat OCD many times with great results. I know from experience that you can learn to have a more normal life again and not feel like you cant go anywhere without having to go through bizarre process in the first place. That you can enjoy your life more!
I have seen on many occasions that there are ways to solve this puzzle, to learn to relax more about things in general is a key aspect of treating any anxiety disorder. Using hypnotherapy along with NLP can bring excellent results in a relatively quick period of time. i have suffered OCD myself so i am only too aware of how bad it can seem. You are welcome to come for a FREE consultation so you have nothing to lose.
Note: DSM is classed as the handbook for clinicians to help diagnose many disorders. Some may follow DSM advice and claim that OCD needs lifelong treatment. having beat this problem myself i do not agree with that, i know from experience that you can learn to put this in the back of your mind, and not let it have such an impact.
