Life can be so full of pressure and stress, is it any wonder we sometimes need help navigating these challenges? Many of the people I work with feel trapped by their past, overwhelmed in the present, or scared of the future. I have supported people through some of the worst moments in their life and seen them turn their lives around. I can help you make sense of what has happened in your life, overcome the things that are holding you back, and help you to change things for the better. As a Clinical Psychologist, I am experienced at treating anxiety, depression, OCD, PTSD, relationship issues, and a range of other problems.

You may be looking for a space for reflection, or wish to work towards specific behavioural goals. Whether your distress is based on the past, present or future, psychological therapy can offer you an opportunity for change and growth.

What would it feel like to offload and release that pressure without feeling judged or being offered well-meaning advice that just isn’t right for you?

Obsessive-Compulsive (OCD) Counsellors

How long does OCD treatment take?

Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder (OCD) is often treated on a weekly or twice-weekly schedule, depending on symptom severity and the client’s preferences. Some clients may start to see a noticeable improvement in symptoms in as little as six weeks, but it’s also possible, especially in more severe cases, for treatment to take several months to a year before significant progress is made.

What happens if OCD is not treated?

Some people with OCD, especially those with mild symptoms, may find that they are able to adapt reasonably well to life with the condition, even if their symptoms never resolve completely. However, many people, particularly those whose symptoms are severe at the outset, find that their obsessions and compulsions grow more intrusive with time, making it harder to maintain relationships, hold down a job, or navigate the world successfully.

Are there medications for OCD?

Medication can be used to treat OCD. The class of drugs most often prescribed are selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors, or SSRIs, which include fluvoxamine, fluoxetine, and sertraline, among others. In cases of treatment-resistant OCD, other classes of medication, such as tricyclic antidepressants or atypical antipsychotics, may be prescribed. Medication is frequently used in conjunction with therapy.

Can OCD come back after treatment?

Yes. Major life transitions, periods of stress, or other factors can cause symptoms to return or, if they were never fully eradicated, to ramp back up in intensity. For some, these relapses are brief and do not require additional treatment; identifying specific triggers and practicing the skills learned in therapy can help speed their course. For others, returning to therapy for a brief period can help address the underlying stress and strengthen coping mechanisms.
