Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD)

OCD is usually associated with annoying (and sometimes very exhausting) repeated thoughts that lead to anxiety and therefore a
compulsion to incessantly perform some sort of checking behaviour in an attempt to relieve the anxiety. The disorder can however take many varied forms.
  • Do you experience intrusive and inappropriate recurrent and persistent thoughts, impulses, or images that are causing you anxiety or distress?
  • Do you feel like you have to be constantly praying, counting, repeating words silently to yourself in just the right way?
  • Do you do things over and over again like washing your hands, cleaning the house, checking your work?
  • Do you find that the thoughts and actions you use to deal with your problems are not connected in a realistic way to the problems themselves or are clearly excessive?
Does this sound familiar? If you have ever felt like this, you are not alone. You may be suffering from Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD)-and there is real and lasting help in the form of our two main approaches to this problem. Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT) and the Sedona Method are powerful tools for letting go of all types of obsessive-compulsive behavior.

You're likely to feel your inhibitions and compulsions dissolve on the spot. Some of our clients have reported that they could feel the tightness leaving their stomach, shoulders and chest when our approaches have been applied. In its place, they have felt warmth and relaxation. You also, may find that you no longer feel tense or driven. Free of your inhibitions and compulsions, you will feel more relaxed, even in the very situations that you once felt you had to avoid. The noise of your mind will subside, and your heart will stop pounding in your chest. You will have the clarity of mind to say and do what is appropriate and natural in any life situation.

You don't have to be trapped with having OCD anymore.

There are two common treatments for OCD: medication and cognitive behavioral therapy. There are also a two others that are highly-effective  alternatives to both of these approaches - EFT and the Sedona Method. In combination they can help you get better, faster results out of whatever treatment program you are currently considering or pursuing. They are a non-drug, non-medical alternative for breaking free of the debilitating effects of all forms of Obsessive Compulsive Disorder.

Let's examine the alternatives to give you relief from this anxiety and fear:

I. You could medicate yourself.

Drugs do provide temporary relief from the symptoms of OCD, but common side effects range from clumsiness and dizziness to loss of sexual desire, muscle spasms, and vomiting.

The drugs can also be quite habit-forming. Some of the side effects of withdrawal from their use include the reoccurrence of all the symptoms that the medication was masking in the first place, plus many extreme reactions like bizarre behavior, depression, convulsions and hallucinations. 

II. Cognitive Behavioral Therapy alone

Cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) is an action-oriented form of psychosocial therapy that assumes that maladaptive, or faulty, thinking patterns cause maladaptive behavior and "negative" emotions. The treatment focuses on changing an individual's thoughts in order to change his or her behavior and emotional state. However, people with OCD recognise that their thoughts are irrational, so we have found that CBT seems to have minimal effect on OCD.

Our compulsive fears and doubts make us defensive. When we are defensive, we are holding in mind what we don't want, so that's what we get. As you release your defensiveness, you see solutions instead of problems. As you naturally hold in mind what you want, you’ll know how to be pro-active and win every time.

If you have OCD then don't suffer a day longer. Call us HERE.
