Understanding OCD and How Therapy Can Help

Obsessive-compulsive disorder, commonly known as OCD, is a mental health condition characterized by uncontrollable and repetitive thoughts and behaviours that cause anxiety and interfere with daily life.

It can manifest in a variety of ways, from obsessive hand-washing to counting objects repeatedly. Despite its prevalence, OCD often goes undiagnosed and untreated. However, with the right therapy, people with OCD can learn to manage their symptoms and improve their quality of life.

At Direct Therapy, we understand the challenges of living with OCD, and we offer evidence-based treatment options to help our clients overcome their symptoms.

What is OCD?

OCD is a mental health disorder characterized by repetitive, unwanted thoughts (obsessions) and repetitive, uncontrollable behaviours (compulsions). These thoughts and behaviours can interfere with daily activities such as work, school, and social interactions. OCD can cause significant distress, anxiety, and interfere with an individual’s quality of life.

Types of OCD Therapy

There are several types of therapy available for OCD, and the choice of therapy depends on the individual’s symptoms and severity of the condition. Two of the most effective therapies for OCD are Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) and Exposure and Response Prevention (ERP). CBT aims to modify thought processes and behaviours surrounding OCD symptoms, while ERP exposes individuals to triggers or situations that provoke OCD symptoms and prohibits them from performing compulsions. Direct Therapy combines CBT and ERP for a customized and comprehensive approach to treating OCD.
