How do we treat O.C.D with Hypnotherapy

O.C.D. occurs when our limbic system has developed an unhealthy set of behaviour patterns, which over time, manifest and take over a persons life in an unhealthy way.  In the brain the reward based system becomes out of balance with the habit based system and when that balance is not able to correct itself, obsessional thoughts can develop and an individual will feel compelled to respond in a habitual or often ritualistic manner. For a person suffering from O.C.D. these patterns can start to take over an individual’s way of life and are very real. In the most extreme cases they can render them unable to function.

As a hypnotherapist I fully understand how these behaviours can develop and take over a persons life. The process, which creates O.C.D, is a natural one and so the treatment available through Solution Focused Hypnotherapy is equally natural.

The Fight, Flight, Freeze centre of the brain has created a way of coping with life, because these are learnt behaviours it is possible to unlearn them in a safe and gentle manner.

Please call me today if you are suffering from O.C.D and would like to find out how more about the treatment available.

A testimonial from an O.C.D. sufferer

'I visited Richard after suffering from anxiety and OCD on and off for over 10 years. In the first session he gave me a thorough, yet easy to understand explanation of the neuro science behind how the brain works and the likely reasons behind the thoughts and feelings I was experiencing. It really resonated with me and that knowledge alone significantly aleviated my anxiety and left me feeling so much more reassured and confident that with some more of Richards help I could make the improvements I needed to get back to my normal self. In just a few more sessions of hypnotherapy and implementing Richards advice I was able to make consistent progress towards a much happier and healthier state of mind. Richard has a very genuine, caring and positive attitude in the approach to his work and I will be forever grateful for his help in my time of need. I would highly reccomend him to anyone that seeks professional help of this kind'
