Whatever it is you or a loved one is struggling with, we are here to help

Obsessive thoughts and behaviours – sometimes referred to as Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD) – can affect men, women and children. You may know someone who describes themselves as ‘a bit OCD’, however for some these this underestimates an experience that profoundly affects their everyday lives.  

Obsessive thoughts can be unwelcome, unpleasant, intrusive thoughts or images that can leave you feeling distracted or distressed. Sometimes these obsessive thoughts feel like they are stuck on repeat in your head. Alternatively, it may be that getting on with your day is impossible without undergoing certain rituals or tasks.  Though engaging in these tasks can provide some temporary relief, at other times these can be crippling and can take over our lives when we feel compelled to engage in them. It may be that you are prevented from going about activities that –  without the particular obsession/s (OCD) you are experiencing – you would otherwise engage in. Or it may be that you are unable to go certain places or even leave your house (agrophobia). 

However it is that obsessive thoughts or behaviours (OCD) are affecting you, at Psychology Sussex our experienced psychologists, psychotherapists and psychotherapeutic counsellors are able to draw on evidenced-based to tailor an approach that is suited to your needs. We work collaboratively with you to manage and ultimately overcome whatever it is that is holding you back.
