If you have reached this page , you will know that OCD is a debilitating condition that takes over your whole life (as well as the life of your loved ones). I offer Hypnotherapy for OCD courses that can help you beat the condition once and for all.
By the time most people start seeking alternative therapies for OCD they have already been on tablets for several years, have tried many other forms of conventional therapies but are still no further along in gaining any respite from the disorder.
Hypnotherapy for OCD
I am an anxiety and OCD specialist working very successfully with many clients that are suffering with debilitating symptoms.
What makes my Hypnotherapy for OCD treatment different? Why does it work, and what can you expect from a course of Hypnotherapy for OCD at DO Hypnosis Kent?
Firstly , working privately on a one to one basis has its own unique benefits . As a therapist I listen to you as a sufferer, gain trust, and build a good therapeutic relationship. Without this trusting relationship there can be no change .
In order to treat OCD there needs to be a an analysis of all factors that may be contributing to the condition. I keep abreast of current research that has been done to date and at the time of writing this page there is still not one single factor that scientists consider to be responsible for the onset and maintenance of OCD.
Many factors are believed to contribute to and maintain OCD, so therefore all of these factors are considered when I compose your personalised Hypnotherapy for OCD course of treatment . In the first session I will conduct an in depth consultation so that I can identify any underlying issues such as trauma or childhood issues. In this session I will also explore and analyse environmental factors, biological factors, and lifestyle.
I use a combination of hypnotherapy and exposure -response therapy to de-sensitise the fear structures in the amygdala and reduce the obsessive thoughts and behaviors.
Research shows that Exposure response therapy is considered to be the most effective form of treatment for OCD. The downside of this is that it can be a very difficult therapy to undergo as the sufferer is exposed to their worst fears in order to reduce the obsessive thoughts and behaviours. This is called in vivo desensitisation.
However , when ERP is combined with hypnotherapy it becomes much easier as the client is exposed to their fears using in vitro desensitisation, which means that they are first exposed to their fears under hypnosis , the subconscious is thus then prepared for the real life ( in vivo) exposure, which makes it much easier and gentler for the client to cope with.
Please take a look at my OCD blog which has a lot of information about OCD ,what it is, the research and evidence for treatment as well as how I treat it.
OCD is a severe and complex condition and because of this it requires many more sessions than most other conditions I treat.
If you have obsessive thoughts only and have not progressed to obsessive behaviours you will require less sessions than if there are lots of obsessive behaviours and associated phobias (such as agoraphobia).
Most OCD clients are with me for several months undergoing intensive therapy.
Hypnotherapy for OCD prices
For obsessive thoughts only you will require a minimum of six sessions . The cost of a six session Hypnotherapy for OCD course is £370.00
If you have obsessive behaviours combined with phobias you will require 12 to 18 sessions. The more session you book up front the cheaper your course of therapy becomes.
Example of costs –
Six sessions £370.00
Twelve sessions £700
Eighteen sessions £1000.00
Alternatively some clients prefer to pay for the first six sessions then book another six when they have completed the first six.
I offer a free consultation (either by phone or in person) if you would like to meet me before committing to your course of therapy.
