Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD) can cause feelings of overwhelm due to the anxiety, tension, compulsive behaviour and intrusive thoughts that come with the problem.
The past 18 months have been a time of high anxiety for everybody, including those who don’t suffer with pre-existing mental health conditions, but those with anxiety-related issues are likely to have seen an increase in their OCD symptoms.
We have a number of therapists who can treat OCD in Newcastle Psychologist & Counselling’s therapy rooms, using a variety of effective therapy approaches such as Cognitive Behavioural Therapy for OCD and other proven therapies.
CBT for OCD
Cognitive-Behavioural Therapy (CBT) for OCD is a structured therapy that helps to treat the thoughts, feelings and behaviours that cause problems in OCD. The number of sessions can vary depending upon your individual needs and complexity of the problem.
CBT is specifically recommended as an effective way to treat OCD as it has proven repeated success, not just as a way to treat OCD in Newcastle Psychologist & Counselling’s approach, but also in years of scientific research and published papers.
Our specially trained OCD focused psychologists are experienced at using counselling and CBT based approaches to help you overcome the negative, anxious, and/or intrusive thoughts, and compulsive behaviour that drives OCD.
By having the support of your therapist, we can help you interrupt the negative cycles that perpetuate the problem and tackle it far more effectively than trying to face the problem alone.
Manage Your Mental Health and OCD
Due to the interference that OCD can cause in daily life, it often has a detrimental effect on quality of life, performance at work, and even in our relationships.
If you have had experienced OCD for a longer period of time, it can feel overwhelming to try to tackle the problem by yourself.
You may feel pessimistic about overcoming your difficulties, but our team of specialist OCD psychologists are qualified and experienced in being able to help you overcome your problems with compulsive behaviour, intrusive thoughts, and the anxiety that comes with OCD.
As OCD is a considered an anxiety problem, the techniques that can help you overcome obsessive-compulsive disorder can also help you manage anxiety in other areas of life, such as at work, in your relationships or in social situations.
