What is Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD)?

Obsessive Compulsive Disorder Treatment Manchester | OCD Psychotherapy Manchester | OCD Counsellor | OCD Manchester | OCD NLP ManchesterObsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD) is one of the Anxiety Disorders. It is characterised by repeated unwanted obsessional thoughts which create a feeling of anxiety.   To reduce or avoid these obsessive thoughts they are followed by compulsive and repetitive tasks or urges.

Everyone actually has a few OCD type thoughts or compulsions, particularly when stressed.  But for someone with Obsessive Compulsive Disorder their daily live is significantly impacted by it.

OCD is generally considered to fall into one of four main categories:

  • Checking
  • Contamination
  • Hoarding
  • Intrusive Thoughts

The Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD) Treatment in Manchester

The Obsessive Compulsive Disorder treatment (OCD) available at the Manchester counselling and psychotherapy practice is highly individualised to your unique requirements. Therefore the exact form of treatment and number of sessions will vary from person to person. However you could be feeling better in as little as 6 to 18 sessions of short-term therapy. For more deep-rooted, chronic or complex OCD, longer-term counselling & psychotherapy will usually be required.

OCD Treatment Manchester | Counselling for Obsessive Compulsive Disorder in Manchester

The overall aim of this process is to help you to experience a deep permanent change in how you think, feel and behave. During the process we will address whatever issues need to be dealt with to enable you to overcome your OCD. The treatment process itself is sensitive, respectful, non-judgemental, and is carried out at a pace which you are comfortable with.

The approach is integrative, and treatment combines elements of Psychotherapy / Counselling, Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP), CBT, EMDR, Gestalt Therapy, Clinical Hypnotherapy, mindfulness and life coaching.

I’m sure you can imagine the amazing benefits of combining these powerful processes, allowing you to quickly and easily change the thoughts and behaviours you currently have so you can find yourself changing in beneficial ways.

I am an accredited and experienced registered Psychotherapist, Life Coach, EMDR Therapist, Licensed NLP Master Practitioner and Clinical Hypnotherapist. I believe there is no ‘one size fits all’ treatment as we are all unique human beings. I, therefore, combine all my skills and experience to produce a treatment that is tailored to meet your personal needs.

Booking is easy

NOTE: Before booking it is very important that you get your symptoms diagnosed by a medical practitioner or doctor, as many of the symptoms of anxiety may also be symptoms of more serious conditions.

I recommend booking an Initial Consultation/Assessment Session first. This gives us the chance to begin to explore your issues and your requirements further, give you honest answers to any questions you might have, give you a realistic estimate of the number of sessions you may require and begin the process of change.

I practice from an office in Manchester City Centre, with easy access by tram, train, car and bus.

When you are committed to making the inner changes you need, simply phone me on 07463 542368 or or Click here to email to make an appointment now.

If you can’t travel to me then I am available for online therapy and coaching via Skype.

I offer online scheduling for appointments in Manchester
