What is Obsessive Compulsive Disorder?

Sufferers of OCD experience repetitive, unwelcome and intrusive thoughts, images, impulses and doubts which they find hard to ignore. These thoughts sometimes 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.

…thank you so much for all your help, I am doing really well and life could not be better… 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.

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.

It’s all about control – and feeling out of it…

At the very heart of Obsessive Compulsive Disorder is the anxiety of feeling out of control. This leads to over-compensating, controlling thoughts and behaviours to try and gain a sense of calm and control. Therefore any treatment of OCD should seek to give the sufferer that insight and understanding about their thinking and tools to empower them to take back useful, emotional control.
