We genuinely care and want you to overcome this because we know that it is possible.
NHS definition of OCD: Obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) is a common mental health condition in which a person has obsessive thoughts and compulsive behaviours. It affects men, women and children, and can develop at any age. Some people develop the condition early, often around puberty, but it typically develops during early adulthood. OCD can be distressing and significantly interfere with your life, but treatment can help you keep it under control.
If you have OCD, you’ll usually experience frequent obsessive thoughts and compulsive behaviours.
For example, someone with an obsessive fear of their house being burgled may feel they need to check all the windows and doors are locked several times before they can leave the house.
– An obsession is an unwanted and unpleasant thought, image or urge that repeatedly enters your mind, causing feelings of anxiety, disgust or unease.
– A compulsion is a repetitive behaviour or mental act that you feel you need to carry out to try to temporarily relieve the unpleasant feelings brought on by the obsessive thought.
There’s nothing to feel ashamed or embarrassed about. It’s a health condition like any other. It doesn’t mean you’re “mad” and it’s not your fault you have it.
Immersion therapy. This involves a substantial amount of time with you either in your home, (yes! we can come stay with you, or in a local hotel near – by and visit you each day). It could be 1 day or 3 days, everyone is unique, but we will stay till we crack it. Part of our process is also to educate the people close to you so they are aware not only how to support you but also help them to understand this condition. No other service will include this but we know how vital it is.
Your GP will ask about your symptoms and can refer you to a local psychological therapies service if necessary
If you think a friend or family member may have OCD, try talking to them about your concerns and suggest they seek help. Even better tell them about us.
OCD is unlikely to get better without proper treatment and support. We urge you to get the help you deserve.
