There is a solution to obsessive-compulsive disorder. We help you so that unwanted thoughts do not take control of your life
What is Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder (OCD)?
Obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) is a type of anxiety disorder. When you have OCD, you have repeated, distressing thoughts called obsessions. You may do the same thing over and over again to try and make the thoughts go away. These repeated actions are called compulsions.
Some examples of obsession are the fear of germs or the fear of harming yourself. Compulsions include hand washing, counting, checking things over and over, or cleaning. When left untreated, OCD can take over a person’s life.
For many, OCD begins during childhood or adolescence. Most people are diagnosed around 19 years of age. OCD symptoms can come and go, and can get better or worse at different times. There are different types of treatments for OCD. Doctors may ask people with OCD to go to psychotherapy with a psychologist or psychiatrist. The treatments that we use in our center are Neurofeedback and EMDR, since they are especially useful for treating OCD. They teach a person different ways of thinking, acting, and reacting to situations, and these different ways of doing things help the person feel less anxious and fearful without having obsessive thoughts or having to act compulsively.
