Obsessive Compulsive Disorder
OCD Therapy in London and Online
Feel that your own mind is controlling you and that you are constantly repeating the same pattern? Even if it's out of your control, an obsessive-compulsive disorder may be a very isolating and lonely experience that makes you feel humiliated and different from other people.
What is OCD?
OCD sees your mind fixate on something unpleasant (obsession), which can be a consistent thought, visual, or urge. And your way of trying to find relief from the unease or anxiety creates for you involves taking a certain action or mental routine each time (compulsion).
We can all at times obsess about something or act compulsively. But if you have obsessive-compulsive disorder, you can't stop yourself. It all leads to significant distress and makes daily coping more of a challenge, whether that is at home or work, or with school or your social life.
Examples of OCD
Being convinced that you need to repeatedly wash your hands or specific objects because you risk being contaminated.
Believing that if you don't double-check each door every time you park, your car will be taken
Avoiding a specific location or circumstance because you have negative feelings about it.
Feeling that if you don't check to make sure that all the appliances are unplugged, your house will burn down.
Being certain that if you don't double tap everything you pass, awful things will happen to your family.
A pattern where you constantly hear in your head that you are going to become something, and you must spend an hour investigating to "disprove" it.
Pure O – Intrusive, violent, sexual, religious theme kind of imagination. A person might imagine wielding a knife to harm someone or throwing someone into the path of an approaching train or opening the door of a plane while it is in the air. There is no proof that somebody who has intrusive thoughts committed the crimes.
