Obsessions and Compulsions

by Wolverhampton Hypno-Analyst Derek Brownhill

Obsessions and compulsions could be described as persistent or uncontrollable, thoughts, actions and behaviours. They can take the form of something as simple as having to check and re-check that the Gas Oven is off, or they can become so intrusive and overpowering to the point of becoming a danger. From my practice in Wolverhampton I have successfully treated clients suffering from many forms of obsessions such as:

Hoarding, Weight control, OCD, frequent tapping / scratching / nose-touching / etc, rituals ( eg. meals at certain times / served in a certain way / eaten in a certain order, etc), superstitious behaviour, exactness, washing, checking, sexual obsessions and many more.

We are not born with obsessions. We either teach them to ourselves, perhaps initially gaining a sense of relief or satisfaction from doing something which later becomes compulsive, or we are taught them by others - say your prayers every night, always brush your teach before going to bed, never walk under a ladder, etc. Whatever the origin, obsessive behaviour can have a profoundly negative effect of quality of life. I have heard stories of broken marriages, lost employment, broken friendships and more all through the negative effects of obsessions.
