OCD is an anxiety disorder characterized by recurrent, unwanted thoughts (obsessions) and/or repetitive behaviors (compulsions).
What It Can Entail
If you’re dealing with OCD, you might haunted by persistent, unwelcome thoughts or by the urgent need to engage in certain rituals. For example, if you’re obsessed with germs you might wash your hands repeatedly.
Repetitive behaviors such as counting, checking, or cleaning are often performed with the hope of preventing obsessive thoughts or something bad happening. Performing these so-called “rituals,” however, provides only temporary relief. Not performing them increases anxiety and tension.
How It Can Affect Others and Yourself
If you’re living with OCD, you know your ritual is draining you and your loved ones. However, you seem to lack the power to stop it.
Daily activities can become a challenge. Have you lost friends, jobs or missed a meeting because you had to “do” something so many times?
These difficulties can evolve and develop from the need to be perfect, indecision, socializing problems, discouragement, procrastinating, and so on.
Hypnotherapy can assist you in taking control of obsessive thoughts and compulsive behaviors because it quickly gets to the roots of the obsession. and helps to re-frame it.
