Effectiveness of hypnosis in treating OCD

Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD) is a prevalent and persistent mental health condition characterised by obsessive thoughts and compulsive behaviours.

An individual with OCD experiences intense feelings of anxiety and fear, often driven by intrusive, negative thoughts. These thoughts, recognisable as obsessions, often lead to compulsive behaviours or OCD rituals aimed at mitigating the accompanying distress.

The key to treating OCD lies in cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT), a talking therapy administered by a clinical psychologist, focusing on altering negative thought patterns and developing coping strategies.

However, Hypnotherapy, when utilised alongside CBT, can enhance the effectiveness of traditional treatment methods. For instance, a study by Alladin and Alibhai (2007) demonstrated the efficacy of cognitive hypnotherapy in the treatment of OCD, showing significant improvement in patients over 6 months.

Benefits of Hypnotherapy for OCD Patients

A gentle and effective way to overcome feelings of anxiety associated with OCD.

Reduction in anxiety levels

Hypnotherapy can enhance the patient’s ability to respond to CBT by promoting relaxation, reducing anxiety, and aiding in the visualisation of desired behavioural changes.

Improved control over obsessive thoughts

Through hypnosis, individuals can learn techniques to gain better control over intrusive thoughts. Hypnotherapy can help reframe these thoughts and reduce their power, making them less overwhelming.

Enhanced ability to resist compulsions

Hypnotherapy can strengthen an individual’s resolve to resist compulsive behaviours. By accessing the subconscious mind, it can help modify the underlying patterns that drive these behaviours, leading to a reduction in compulsive actions.

The Hypnotherapy Process

A hypnotherapy session tailored for OCD begins with an initial consultation with one of our hypnotherapists. Following this, you will embark on a calming and constructive journey where you’ll be guided into a state of deep relaxation. During this hypnosis session, targeted suggestions will be made to your subconscious mind to facilitate positive changes in your thought patterns and behaviours related to OCD.

The aim is to address and modify the subconscious drivers of your obsessive thoughts and compulsive behaviours. By reprogramming your mind’s response to the triggers of OCD, we strive to lessen and ultimately diminish the control that these obsessive-compulsive patterns have over you. This therapeutic process is designed to foster new, healthier mental responses and enhance your sense of mastery over what previously seemed insurmountable, leading you towards a more balanced and liberated existence.

How many sessions will I need?

The number and frequency of hypnotherapy sessions required will depend on the individual and the severity of their OCD. While some may experience significant improvement after just a few hypnosis sessions, others may require more.

Does hypnotherapy really work for OCD?

Hypnotherapy is often used alongside other treatment methods, such as CBT, rather than as a standalone treatment. As a complimentary therapy, hypnosis has been clinically proven to help manage anxiety and stress, which are common in people with OCD.

Would highly recommend Adam and Faster Therapy. I have been suffering from anxiety and emotional trauma for the last several years. Adam is caring, compassionate and genuinely interested in your well-being. He’s explained how your mind works and the processes involved. Over 45 minutes, I was able to let go of the anxiety, pain, negative emotions I had carried around for years. I felt such a release and now feel energised with a positive outlook on my life. The session has helped me and would recommend anyone who has spent years in counselling to give this a try.

Adam was really professional and calming. I have been struggling with my own demons for a while especially with my anxiety and prior traumas and Adam is teaching me to let go. As I realised I was pushing all my emotions down and not facing them. After one session I was able to go for a meal with friends. I haven’t been able to do that in months. If you are thinking about having sessions I would definitely do it. Working on yourself before anything else. Adam is really down to earth and is easy to connect with. I felt comfortable from start to finish. Thank you
