OCD – How Hypnotherapy Can Help

Washing Hands

Obsessive Compulsive Disorder or OCD.

Do you ever struggle with unwanted and intrusive negative thoughts? Do you sometimes find yourself engaged in small ‘rituals’ whereby you check your car door is definitely locked again and again and again?

Are you tired of this cycle of endless checking and obsessive behaviour? Are you looking for help to break away from it and so embrace a positive way of managing your life?




If the answer is “yes” then you may find Solution Focused Hypnotherapy may help to ease your mind away from thinking endless negative thoughts which can lead to, in extreme cases, people struggling to leave their own home.


I often see people who come to seek help with Obsessive Compulsive Disorder or OCD.  As our daily lives are increasingly stressful in the modern world so, sometimes, our brains struggle to adapt to the challenges we face.

As such, it tries to protect us by re-checking things again and again or introducing obsessive thinking into our lives. Negative thoughts then end up in something we term as a ‘stress bucket’ and people may find themselves re-checking things as part of an unwanted habit.

By using Solution Focused Hypnotherapy, I work together with my clients to help them empty the stress bucket so allowing them to have a more relaxed and confident outlook to their life which, in turn, helps them to stop worrying and focus on the positive aspects of life as a whole. 

At our Initial Consultation I explain in full how the brain works and how Solution Focused Hypnotherapy can be beneficial to overcome the problem. I also provide a relaxation CD or MP3 download for my clients during the course of the meeting.

Each session is designed to focus the mind into a mode of positive thinking prior to entering the trance state which is designed to be relaxing and soothing for the individual.

The number of sessions used by people who have obsessive feelings can vary and, obviously, as with any medical issue then it is important to remember that your GP is also there to help.

Solution Focused Hypnotherapy can also be used to help improve sleep, aid in self-esteem and confidence, reduce phobias and fears and help people with anxiety, stress and depression.


When you book an Initial Consultation, I provide a full explanation on how hypnotherapy works and how it may help you.
