Obsessive Compulsive Behaviour can cause the sufferer much distress and, impair their lifestyle significantly. Many children develop OCD behaviours but the majority grow out of them. In adulthood, OCD onset generally happens about the mid twenties and affects males and females in about equal numbers.
The sufferer readily acknowledges to themselves that there is no sensible reason for the behaviour and tends to conceal it from others as far as possible.
Hypnotherapy can prove to be a valuable and effective treatment for OCDs and is recommended as a therapy.
