Obsessive thoughts and compulsive behaviours can entrap people in a vicious cycle of increased anxiety arising from intrusive and often irrational thoughts, that is temporarily relieved by engaging in a repetitive behaviour. In extreme and chronic proportions this pattern is diagnosed as Obsessive Compulsive Disorder – and can be extremely draining and difficult.
While obsessive thoughts and behaviours can be overwhelming, effective ways of understanding and managing one’s relationship with anxiety can help to diminish them. Our experienced psychologists can help you develop an approach for managing your anxieties, which can reduce their impact and maximise your personal sense of empowerment and freedom.
We also understand that every client’s needs and preferences are unique. Nexus Psychologists are highly trained in a wide variety of evidence-based therapeutic approaches, and are able to draw from these to ensure that our clients receive the therapy that will be most beneficial to them.
