What is Obsessive Compulsive Disorder?
OCD can take many forms but in general, sufferers experience repetitive, unwelcome and intrusive thoughts, images, impulses and doubts which they find hard to ignore. These thoughts form the obsessional part of ‘Obsessive-Compulsive’ and they usually (but not always) cause the person to perform repetitive compulsions in a vain attempt to relieve themselves of the obsessions and neutralise the fear.
Sufferers may try to fight these thoughts with mental or physical rituals. These compulsions involve repeatedly performing actions such as hand washing, cleaning, checking, counting, hoarding or partaking in endless rumination. Avoidance of feared situations is also common; however, this often results in further worrying and preoccupation with the obsessional thoughts.
Typically, the individual experiences a sense of resistance to the act but this is overridden by the strong drive to perform the action. Most often the principal aim behind the compulsive act is to generate temporary relief from the anxiety – and to feel a sense of being able to control their anxiety.
Just a little message to thank you for everything Cara, its been so good to find such a fantastic therapy and coupled with a fantastic person who doesn’t make you feel judged whilst you are judging yourself! I really do feel great and very happy about the future now.

The Thrive Programme – highly effective Obsessive Compulsive Disorder OCD Treatment
Discover how to get back REAL control over your thoughts and behaviours, instead of feeling that they are controlling you. People suffering from OCD have certain beliefs and styles of thinking that maintain and escalate their symptoms, including feeling powerless and out of control. The result of this is then to try to over-control their thinking – which only creates more anxiety and feelings of powerlessness. I can teach you how to feel completely in control of your thoughts and feelings in just a few enlightening sessions.
The Thrive Programme is very different to CBT (cognitive behavioural therapy) or certainly any other treatment for OCD that is commonly practised. It is much more than just a series of techniques to help you deal with the problem. Click here to read about how The Thrive Programme is different from other forms of treatment for OCD.
Just to say once again thank you so much for all your help, I am doing really well and life could not be better. (The Thrive Programme) really worked, for me just knowing that I am in control of my thoughts has empowered me to deal and have control about having anxieties about harming my child. I used to live on the edge asking myself why I was having these thoughts and hence giving meaning to them, now I know I am in control and I know they have no meaning to me…I would recommend anyone.
