Living a happy and fulfilling life with obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) is a definite possibility. AKUA Mind & Body is here to help!
We utilize a blended therapy approach to treat the whole person, taking mental and social factors into consideration, rather than treating just the symptoms of obsessive-compulsive disorder.
Our treatment program provides clients with the tools needed to effectively manage unwanted repetitive and persistent thoughts that are either repressed or carried out by these compulsions.
Compulsions are repetitive actions in response to the persistent thoughts to relieve the tension and anxiety brought by the thoughts. OCD often centers on themes such as a fear of germs or the need to arrange objects in a specific manner. Symptoms usually begin gradually and vary throughout life. Treatment includes talk therapy, medications, or a combination of both. Examples of compulsions include tapping, counting, praying, checking, hand washing, cleaning, and repeating words.
