Breaking Free: Hypnotherapy's Path to OCD Recovery

Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD) is characterised by intrusive thoughts (obsessions)
and repetitive behaviours (compulsions) that can disrupt daily life. Recognising these
symptoms and seeking help from a qualified Hypnotherapist and Psychotherapist is a crucial
first step towards managing the condition. Treatment involves educating clients about OCD
and helping them reduce stress while focusing on desired outcomes and manageable steps. We support the client to move attention and focus away from the symptoms instead engaging the part of the brain responsible for self control, problem solving and emotional regulation. 

Effective OCD Hypnotherapy Treatment Options

Hypnotherapy offers valuable support for those dealing with OCD. This approach targets thesubconscious mind to address deeply ingrained patterns and beliefs. Through guided relaxation and suggestion techniques, hypnotherapy promotes relaxation, reduces anxiety and facilitates positive behavioural changes. These sessions help individuals reframe obsessive thoughts, to think positively and develop healthier coping mechanisms, creating new neural pathways that encourage a new way of thinking.

sessions to adopt new ways of thinking. Practice self-care techniques like mindfulness, regular exercise, and adequate sleep to reduce stress and enhance resilience.

Progress may be gradual, but each small step forward is a significantachievement on your journey to overcoming OCD and taking control of your life.

  • What is hypnotherapy, and how can it help with insomnia?
    Hypnotherapy is a therapeutic technique that uses guided relaxation and focused attention to access the subconscious mind. It can help alleviate insomnia by addressing underlying psychological factors contributing to sleep disturbances, such as stress, anxiety, and negative thought patterns.
  • Is hypnotherapy safe for treating insomnia?
    Yes, hypnotherapy is generally considered safe when conducted by a trained and qualified practitioner. It is a non-invasive and drug-free approach to treating insomnia, with minimal risk of side effects.
  • How many hypnotherapy sessions are typically needed to see results for insomnia?
    The number of sessions needed can vary depending on individual factors such as the severity of insomnia and responsiveness to hypnotherapy. Some individuals may experience improvements after just a few sessions, while others may require more ongoing support.
  • Is hypnotherapy effective for all types of insomnia, including difficulty falling asleep, staying asleep, or waking up too early?
    Yes, hypnotherapy can be effective for various types of insomnia. By addressing underlying psychological factors contributing to sleep disturbances, hypnotherapy aims to improve overall sleep quality and address specific insomnia symptoms.
  • What can I expect during a hypnotherapy session for insomnia?
    During a hypnotherapy session for insomnia, you can expect to be guided into a state of deep relaxation through gentle induction techniques. Your hypnotherapist will then use suggestive therapy to address specific sleep-related concerns and promote restful sleep patterns.
  • What happens during the Initial Consultation?
    The initial consultation is the the first session and the foundation of solution-focused hypnotherapy. It is an empowering session which along with information gathering, includes an explanation of the brain. ​Here we will discuss what you wish to achieve from the sessions and create a plan to help you to work towards your desired future, all accomplished in small manageable steps. Clients will often leave this session feeling more in control and optimistic.
  • What happens during subsequent sessions?
    Subsequent sessions are focused on positivity and forward-thinking, they are structured in a way that allows you to work towards personal goals and your desired future in small achievable steps. At the end of each session, you are guided into hypnosis, a relaxed state of mind where you are more responsive to the positive, beneficial suggestions that you hear. The sessions are designed so that you leave feeling relaxed, positive and often unaware of the important changes happening within your brain.
  • What is hypnosis?
    People are often intrigued by hypnosis but unaware of what an effective tool it can be in managing mental health issues. Hypnosis, also known as trance, is a safe and very natural state that we enter many times a day. During trance, we have access to the subconscious mind while remaining fully in control. In this state we are more responsive to positive suggestions, enabling us to create long-lasting change. During hypnosis the only thing you will be required to do is relax back and listen to my voice.
  • Who can benefit from hypnotherapy?
    Anyone can benefit from hypnotherapy, regardless of your age. If you are struggling with mental health issues, low confidence or simply need support to make positive changes, such as, losing weight or quitting smoking then hypnotherapy will help.
  • How many sessions will I need?
    Solution focused hypnotherapy works quickly and effectively. Depending on the client and their situation you will usually require between 8 and 12 sessions.
  • Will online hypnotherapy work as well as face to face sessions?
    The results are the same, the only area which differs is the therapeutic rapport, this may take slightly longer. Clients find that they can easily relax and enjoy trance in the familiarity and comfort of their own home and environment. ​ The only considerations when choosing online hypnotherapy sessions is a good internet connection and somewhere private to talk.
