Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD) occurs when an individual gets caught in a cycle of obsessions and compulsions.
Obsessions are unwanted, intrusive thoughts, images, or urges that trigger intensely distressing feelings.
Compulsions are a behavioural attempt to get rid of the obsessions and manage the distress they cause.
People with OCD realize these thoughts don’t make any sense.
They also realize compulsions are only a temporary solution.
But compulsions are time consuming and they get in the way of normal daily activities.
Dr. Corrick Woodfin offers an effective combination of Exposure and Response Prevention (ERP) and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) for the treatment of OCD.
