Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder (OCD)

I’ve worked with many people who initially don’t fully want to stop the compulsions/rituals because the OCD voice has you believe that if you don’t carry out the rituals, something really bad will happen and naturally this makes you feel anxious!
After you’ve carried out the routines and survived, your brain rewards you with feel-good chemicals, calming the anxiety and reinforcing the unconscious belief that the rituals keep you safe.
The next time you feel anxious, the survival part of your brain hears the OCD voice telling you that something bad will happen if you don’t do the rituals and remembers all the times that you’ve done them and survived and chooses safety above all else.
You’re running a glitch in your operating system and I’ve got some gentle techniques that can probably help you with that.
If you’d like to have a free conversation to learn about how working with me on your OCD could help you, please contact me.

"I am just very grateful that I got the opportunity to do this and Laurie helping me every step of the way, it’s something I never thought I’d do, especially when I had never confronted OCD or ever spoke about having it, I was never made to feel embarrassed or weird. She really can help people and use techniques to help you cope, I’m very thankful and she is a pleasure to work with!


100% I think anyone dealing with ocd or anything in general, this would be really helpful and can help a lot of people that also don’t want to confront what they’re going through, (like me) Laurie really made that change."
