OCD Obsessive Compulsive Disorder

hypnotherapist cork

Hi, my name is Paul Hunter. If you’ve been searching for a solution to your ocd problem, then you’ve come to the right page.

I am a Clinical Hypnotherapist, CBT Practitioner and Life Coach. For the past fifteen years, I have been helping people with their obsessive compulsive problems.

So, first of all, what is OCD? The American Psychiatric Association describes it like this:

“Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD) is a disorder in which people have recurring unwanted thoughts, ideas or sensations (obsessions). To get rid of the thoughts, they feel driven to do something repetitively (compulsions).”

Some of the most common compulsions are:

  • Cleaning non-stop for hours
  • Checking numerous times
  • Ordering or tidying
  • Counting
  • Hoarding 

Whether it’s obsessive thoughts are bothing you or if you have a compulsion like the one’s listed above, hypnosis and CBT can be a great help.

Can OCD Be Cured?

One of the most common questions I get in my clinic is “will ocd go away”? I would always answer by saying “lets just work on reducing it”.

The reason I say this is that it may not be possible to completely eliminate ocd from your life, but it certainly is possible to reduce the intensity and frequency of it.

The best technique for reducing your OCD compulsions is one called Exposure and Response Prevention (ERP) which comes from the field of CBT. I find is much easier for the patient to achieve success with this when you couple it with hypnosis.

I washed my hands about forty times every day. It was so bad that my skin was sore from all the washing. Since coming to see you, I now have the hand washing down to three times a day on average. Thanks a million.
