Obsessive Compulsive Disorder
OCD can be a debilitating and distressing condition. Thoughts and compulsions can overwhelm a person.
These typically come in all shapes and forms including cleaning, counting, hoarding, seeking assurance, repeating words etc.
Importantly, each person’s obsessive structure is unique to them.Get Help for OCD
What’s OCD about?
At the heart of OCD is anxiety. Typically acting on an obsessive thought gives temporary relief to anxiety. There is usually a fear that something bad will happen without OCD.
In this way, we can understand OCD as a defence. As a solution against something worse. What could be worse though?Get Help for OCD
What problem is our OCD trying to solve? Why is it here in the first place?
Many treatments steer away from these questions and instead attempt to swap the solution of OCD with another one.
Our treatment works on these questions; aiming at the root cause of OCD. By working on the cause of OCD we work to produce lasting change. To transform obsession.Get Started
