(Obsessive Compulsive Disorder) OCD therapy is a structured and evidence-based psychological treatment that helps individuals with obsessive-compulsive disorder manage their distressing obsessions and compulsions through techniques such as cognitive-behavioural therapy (CBT) including exposure therapy.

OCD Therapy


OCD therapy, which stands for Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder therapy, is a specialized form of psychological treatment designed to help individuals struggling with this particular mental health condition. Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder is characterized by persistent, intrusive thoughts (obsessions) and repetitive, often ritualistic behaviours or mental acts (compulsions) aimed at reducing the distress caused by those thoughts. These obsessions and compulsions can be extremely distressing and disruptive to a person's daily life, which is why therapy is so crucial.

In OCD therapy, Wanda works closely with the individual to address these obsessions and compulsions effectively. One of the most common therapeutic approaches used is cognitive-behavioural therapy (CBT), which helps individuals understand the connection between their thoughts, feelings, and actions. For example exposure therapy allows individuals to be gradually exposed to their fears or triggers and then prevented from engaging in their usual compulsions. Over time, this process helps them gain control over their obsessions and compulsions, reducing their impact on daily life. OCD therapy is highly effective and can significantly improve a person's quality of life by helping them manage their symptoms and regain control over their thoughts and actions.
