Obsessive Compulsive Disorder
understand and cure obsessive compulsive disorder

Obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD) occurs in many different forms. What they all have in common is the fact that OCD is a pattern or strategy of purposeful thinking that causes you to repeat something over and over again. Your reflective thoughts create feelings which lead to the behaviours that create so many problems in your life.

It feels as if you're out of control and your mind is not doing what you tell it to do, in fact, that is not true - you are doing exactly what a part of your mind wants to do and at the same time you are not doing what another part wants to do. When OCD has a firm grip on your mind, it feels like an automatic and unconscious response to events.

If you want to make it stop you have change the dichotomous parts into a congruent whole. This change allows you to have clear, rational thinking without feeling conflicted and out of control.

The reality is that OCD is based on a strategy of thinking that you learned in your life's journey. And because you learned an OCD strategy at one point in your life, you can also unlearn and re-learn something different at this time in your life.

Some symptoms of obsessive compulsive disorder include:

  1. Persistent thoughts that are unwelcome and feel out of control
  2. A complusive powerful need to engage in a certain routine or activity over and over again
  3. A very intense hyper-awareness of dirt and germs, even in places where they aren't present
  4. Strong feelings of doubt, driving you to check and re-check something repeatedly because of some fear, usually imaginary

For some people it is the "troubled thoughts" that cause the most problems as they keep returning over and over again. Other people worry constantly about danger, both real and imagined. Some people show physical symptoms of OCD, such as tapping the foot, clicking a pen, or snapping a rubber band. Regardless of how OCD appears in your life, changing these patterns of thought will lead to a healthy outcome.

Neuro Semantics, NLP and Hypnotherapy help resolve OCD by teaching you how to change the way your mind and imagination present issues to you. Instead of constructing destructive and repetitive thoughts, you learn how to produce thoughts that lead to what you desire and are constructive and productive to your lifes goals. Added to that, you learn how to recognise when your thoughts are 'grounded' or 'imaginary', allowing you to re-pattern them at both a conscious and unconscious level.
