Help with OCD

Using NLP And Hypnotherapy To Cure Obsessive Compulsive Disorder

Obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD) occurs in many different forms.  What they all have in common is the fact that OCD is a pattern of thinking that causes you to repeat something over and over again.  Your thoughts create feelings which lead to the behaviours that create so many problems in your life.  It feels as if you’re out of control and your mind is not doing what you tell it to do; in fact, you’re right.  When OCD has a firm grip on your mind, it is an automatic and unconscious response to events.  If you want to make it stop you have change the automatic response to something more constructive.

About Obsessive Compulsive Disorder

If you have OCD, the last thing you need is for us to set out along list of the ways it can appear in your daily life because you already know it’s there.  It is a part of your life that seems to be beyond your control and practically living in your genes.  The reality, though, is that OCD is based on a pattern of thinking that you learned somewhere along the way.  And because you learned it at one point in your life, you can also re-learn something different at this point in your life.

Some of the typical symptoms of obsessive compulsive disorder include:

For some people, it is the “bad thoughts” that cause the most trouble as they keep coming back over and over again.  Other people worry constantly about danger, both real and imagined.  Still more people show physical symptoms of OCD, such as tapping the foot, clicking a pen, or snapping a rubber band.  Regardless of how OCD appears in your life, we can help change the pattern of thoughts that leads to the out of control behaviour. 

How Do NLP And Hypnotherapy Help OCD?

NLP and hypnotherapy help resolve OCD by teaching you how to change the way your mind and imagination think.  Instead of producing destructive and repetitive thoughts, you learn how to produce thoughts that are positive and productive to your life.  Even more important, you learn how to recognize when your thoughts are “real” or “imaginary”, allowing you to re-pattern them at both a conscious and unconscious level.   

How Long Will Treatment Take?

Most people are treated successfully in as few as three or four one-hour sessions.  Your individual needs may vary, of course, but your practitioner will work with you to achieve the results you want in as few sessions as possible.
