OCD Counselling Older Man With Glasses

Intrusive or unwanted thoughts are a common occurrence, and can be unpleasant for anybody.

But for those with Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD), intrusive thoughts can begin to dominate the mind of the sufferer.

While everyone experiences intrusive thoughts, even on a day to day basis, they often cause extreme distress for people with OCD or other conditions such as anxiety.

If you find yourself consumed by disturbing, violent, or upsetting thoughts that cause anxiety for you, our OCD therapy in Newcastle can help you get relief.

OCD and Intrusive Thoughts

As one of the core symptoms of Obsessive Compulsive Disorder, virtually all of those diagnosed with OCD experience problematic intrusive thoughts.

Although they are distressing on their own, unwanted thoughts can also lead to a number of behaviours that those with OCD feel compelled to carry out, in order to get rid of or control these thoughts.

These actions can include anything from repeated checking and counting, to constantly seeking reassurance from others or from the internet, and often contribute to keeping the sufferer in a heightened state of anxiety.

If you find yourself having distressing thoughts on a recurring basis and notice yourself engaging in unhealthy or irrational ways to control them, our experienced team of OCD therapists in Newcastle can help.
