Obsessive Compulsive Disorder

Although scientists now want to look at genes that could cause Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (or OCD in short), this obsessive and compulsive behavior has been known to be familial based. This means if you have it, your children and/or grandchildren who grow up in your household could be at a higher risk of having this disorder.

How does hypnosis assist people who suffer from Obsessive Compulsive Disorder?

OCD could perhaps be one of the most difficult conditions to break because just the fact that one is obsessive and compulsive in doing a particular act means that their subconscious has built this network of programs which makes one compelled to perform such act over and over and over again for an indeterminate number of times. In every case, when people come to me to heal it is vital that the they would want to make a 360 degree change in order for therapy to work. This proves especially true for the OCD client. If a person with OCD or any other issue comes to me and deep down doesn’t really want change, he or she would just sabotage the work and energy that we would have put into the healing process. If the client, on the other hand, really wants change to happen in their lives, I would use hypnosis to break the grip of the OCD, refocus their minds on other, more positive parts of life, such as starting a new hobby, going out and socializing with friends or meeting new people and I will teach the client different techniques that he or she could use at home to help break this habit.
