Obsessive Compulsive Disorder
People with OCD generally receive unwanted thoughts repeatedly causing them to feel stress or anxiety. The degree of this discomfort is high enough for them to carry out compulsive actions like washing their hands, organising items, counting numbers in their head or other repetitive acts. Carrying out this action will temporarily quell the feelings of stress and anxiety. However, obsessive thoughts and anxiety soon return and the cycle begins again.
Compulsions to carry out a certain behaviour is the mind’s way of trying to prevent this anxiety (even if logically the behaviour and thought aren’t linked). The behaviours will differ from person to person but may include:
- Repeating words
- Checking (i.e. checking doors are locked, taps are off)
As the condition worsens, it becomes all-consuming and some people struggle to carry out daily tasks or even leave the house. It is important to note that OCD is created by the mind, and as such, it can be un-created with the power of the mind too. Priyanka Ghaghda can guide you through your subconscious mind to determine why your mind created this and reframe the limiting beliefs that prevent you from being free of this issue. Her non-invasive approach focuses on working with the root cause rather than treating the symptoms.
Priyanka’s Rapid Transformation Program, is a focused approach to give you freedom in as little as 28 days.
