Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder (OCD)

 

The extreme preoccupation (OCD) with certain thoughts and compulsive performance of certain behaviors, both of which occur in ritualistic and unavoidable fashion is called obsessive-compulsive disorder.

People with a severe obsessive-compulsive disorder tend to spend an inordinate amount of time with their obsessions and compulsions and occasionally have difficulty leading productive lives.

People with an obsessive-compulsive disorder suffer from unwanted and intrusive thoughts that they can’t seem to get out of their heads (obsessions), often compelling them to repeatedly perform ritualistic behaviors and routines (compulsions) to try and ease their anxiety.

Most people with obsessive-compulsive disorder are aware that their obsessions and compulsions are irrational, but they feel powerless to stop them. Some spend hours at a time performing complicated rituals involving hand-washing, counting, or checking to ward off persistent, unwelcome thoughts, feelings, or images. Sufferers of this disorder feel less anxious once they have carried out a compulsion.

The classic obsessive-compulsive disorder condition is that of compulsive hand washing in response to an irrational fear of germs. However: These rituals can interfere with a person’s normal routine, schoolwork, job, family, or social activities. Several hours every day may be spent focusing on obsessive thoughts and performing seemingly senseless rituals. Trying to concentrate on daily activities may be difficult.

 

 

 

Comorbidity

 

Depression is the most frequent complication of OCD. Personality disorders are frequently diagnosed with OCD, but may remit with the treatment of OCD. OCD also co-exists with a number of other anxiety disorders like panic disorder, social phobia, and with eating disorders.

Self-hypnosis

 

Self-hypnosis has helped many patients with stress. Many sufferers usually report very quickly a noticeable improvement. Pondering, fears, mental and physical tension can be additionally reduced by self-hypnosis. Therefore, I teach my patients self-hypnosis to supplement the hypnosis sessions.

After positive trance experiences have been made with my support, self-hypnosis can be learned very quickly. This helps them to progress self-determined outside the therapy. It accelerates the process, deepens and consolidates the achievements. This also promotes the independence of the clients. A good therapist will be superfluous as soon as possible. Self-hypnosis is an excellent self-help method that can be used beyond the actual topic.
