How to Treat OCD: Podcast 006

This podcast is the narrated version of my article 4 Great Therapy Techniques For Treating OCD.

In this episode I talk about:

  • How OCD can be seen as an attempt to stave off anxiety
  • Why I use the Rewind Technique and why detraumatisation helps OCD
  • Why it’s important to separate OCD from core identity
  • How to interrupt the patterns that drive OCD
  • How to use therapeutic hypnosis to fight the ‘hypnosis of OCD’

Or watch this episode of the podcast on video below:
