Obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) is a mental health disorder that occurs when individuals have irrational patterns of uncontrollable fears and thoughts that lead to engaging in compulsive behaviour. The obsessions and compulsions both interfere with a patient’s day-to-day functioning and lead to significant emotional or physical distress. When someone with OCD tries to stop their thought spirals or resist compulsions, it can lead to more anxiety and stress. Not every case of obsessive-compulsive disorder presents the same way. Though the better-known manifestation of OCD involves an obsession with cleanliness and fear of germs, this condition can develop around any theme. It’s important to note while obsessive-compulsive disorder can sometimes seem uncontrollable, there are multiple treatment methods available one of which is Hypnotherapy.
