BEATING THE OCD BULLY

If you are suffering from OCD you are not alone. It is estimated that nearly 2 million people in the UK have obsessive-compulsive disorders, some more severe than others.

With OCD, frightening, intrusive and repetitive thoughts take over (such as a loved one will die or that you have run over someone whilst driving), resulting in the need to perform specific rituals to ward off harm or make things 'all right'. The most common  behaviours are repeated hand washing and 'checking' rituals, for instance, checking that the back door is locked or that the oven is turned off.

Whilst carrying out the ritual, OCD sufferers commonly state that they lose all track of time, unaware, for instance, that they had been washing their hands for an hour. They are in a trance and time distortion is a common trance phenomenon. The worst thing, of course, is that carrying out the ritual doesn't get rid of the frightening thought. Yes, there might well be temporary relief, but then the OCD bully soon returns, telling you to do it all over again, and again, and again.

At stow-hypno I use a combination of Cognitive Behavioural Therapy and hypnosis. (CBT by itself takes too long because emotion comes before thought and, with OCD, it is the emotional part of the brain that needs 're-programming'). You have to be in a deeply relaxed state for the changes to take place; you can't just rational yourself out of OCD by thinking differently.
