Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD)
When your unwanted thoughts occur repeatedly, you feel unable to stop them, or you feel the ONLY way to stop them is to repeat doing something excessively – to the point of distressing interference in a part of your life, it may be OCD.
The best proven treatment for OCD is a variation of Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT). It’s known as Exposure & Response Prevention (ERP), which I use primarily. I also tend to augment ERP with Acceptance & Commitment Therapy, another variation of CBT.
