Some people joke about obsessive compulsive disorder but to the person who lives with OCD, it’s really not a laughing matter at all. OCD can rule your life and rob you of joy, happiness, and peace of mind. But our counsellors can help you overcome this difficult problem and take back the control in your life.
Our trained psychotherapists could help you overcome OCD.
However it's important to note that, as with all mental health conditions, we cannot make any guarantees with respect to the outcomes of engaging our psychological treatment. Furthermore, if we believe someone has an underlying psychiatric condition, we will at that stage make an appropriate referral to a local psychiatrist.
Our skills, tools, and resources may help you overcome your obsessions and compulsions. Working together with our counsellors will provide access to several treatment methods, such as: NLP, hypnotherapy, Buddhist psychotherapy, dream interpretation, mindfulness therapy, and more. We offer in house appointments at the Melbourne Clinic and we’re happy to meet with you virtually via online counselling.
It’s time to stop your OCD from dictating your every move in life!
Call us on (03) 9557 9113 or use our contact form to book your confidential appointment. Let’s work together to help you stop intrusive thoughts.
Symptoms of OCD can include:
- Unwanted and intrusive thoughts.
- Feeling compelled to perform repeated rituals (such as hand washing or checking rooms for something or for the absence of something).
- Being obsessed about germs.
- Feeling the overwhelming need to check and re-check or count things.
The above is not an exhaustive list but gives you an idea of some common symptoms of obsessive compulsive disorder. Whether it’s washing your hands until they’re raw, hoarding items, checking and re-checking things before you go to bed, or some other ritualistic behaviour that you can’t seem to control, there is counsellor support.
There are counselling options for treatment that can help you change these patterns. Whether OCD has occurred as a result of post-traumatic stress or another reason, it doesn’t have to continue to impact your life.
How long will obsessive compulsive disorder treatment take?
There is no way to estimate how long treatment for OCD will take. Treatment methods and timeframes vary based on the individual.
How is Bayside’s treatment different?
The Bayside Clinic is different. Contrary to mainstream hypnosis where people relinquish control, our psychotherapists aim to help you establish a kind of inward control.
In the first meeting your counsellor will ascertain your wants, your needs, and an appropriate course of treatment. Our counsellors do not use a canned approach. Our training and education have given us a wide breadth of knowledge in many treatment options including NLP and hypnotherapy as well as other wellbeing services and this puts us in a unique position to provide true tailored counselling. Your psychotherapist will tailor your counselling to your situation and after several sessions will review whether or not that treatment is working. If it isn’t, we can adjust it based on your wants, needs, and goals.
Make your appointment as soon as possible and take your life back. That life could be free of the binding chains that compulsions create.
