Dealing with OCD with Cambridge Hypnotherapy – on BBC Radio Cambridgeshire

This week I was asked by BBC Radio Cambridgeshire to speak on their show, discussing the topic of OCD and looking at the different methods to treat it. As we work with many clients with OCD at Cambridge Hypnotherapy, I was asked on how Hypnotherapy can help change the way that people think or behave.

OCD can be displayed in many different ways including the following:

  • cleanliness and hand washing
  • checking appliances, lights and plug sockets are switched off
  • making sure doors and windows are locked over and over
  • having to perform a particular behaviour a set number of times
  • calorie counting and body image
  • thought about hurting themselves or others
  • having to organise things or line things up to an irrational level
  • Feeling anxious about things you know you don’t need to

To us here at Cambridge Hypnotherapy, even though all of the symptoms above are slightly different, they are also exactly the same in the sense that are just a behaviour or way of processing information and thinking about things.

Using NLP and Hypnosis, we can help change they way that our minds process information, which will in turn lead to a change in our behaviour too. We can allow your mind to accept that once you have done something, that memory can be real so that the mind doesn’t need to go back and re check it and you can start to trust your own judgement the first time you do something. No baby is born with OCD behaviours, which tells us that these symptoms and ways of being are simply ┬álearned behaviour. More so, if we have learned it, what’s stopping us from learning a new one again, if we show your unconscious mind all the reasons why it needs to?

It doesn’t take long to let go of Obsessive Compulsive behaviours, in fact we here at Cambridge Hypnotherapy only work with clients for 2-3 sessions.

If there is something that is bothering you, then why not contact us now by clicking HERE, or call us on 01223 720 120 and we can talk you through it. We always offer you a FREE initial consultation to find out more before you ever proceed.

I look forward to hearing from you,

Luke.
