Overcoming Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder by David Veale
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD) is the fourth most common mental health problem in the West. Sufferers are plagued by a recurring thought or idea that just won't go away (the obsession) and are then crippled by a form of behaviour (the compulsion) to try to cope with their fear. For example people may fear being contaminated and so endlessly wash their hands, or they may fear disaster will strike at home and need to check the gas is turned off a hundred times before they are able to leave the house. Cognitive Behavioural Therapy has been clinically proven to reduce the symptoms of OCD significantly for the majority of sufferers and in this book therapists Dr David Veale and Rob Willson provide a self-help approach to overcoming the condition. This accessible guide explains how readers can reduce the distress of intrusive thoughts, face fears and avoided situations, and overcome compulsions.
