The Key To My Success
Over the years I have developed my own method of breaking psychological patterns that inhibit every day life. I use a signature combination of techniques and therapies, and continually refine my skills so I can help people who have previously found treatment difficult.
My techniques include, but are not limited to NLP (Neuro Linquistic Programs), Hypnotherapy, and TFT (Thought Field Therapy). Thanks to Paul McKenna and the genius Richard Bandler, these methods are moving to the forefront of psychological science for mental development. I continue to build upon their knowledge and have added many other techniques, which have led to some fantastic results.
Here is how OCD works in the brain. A particular situation or trigger, such as a worry about getting sick, manifests itself in an associated task, like washing your hands. Failure to perform the task produces a strong physical response (sweaty palms, fast breathing, panic, etc.), as well as an overwhelming compulsion to do the task. Only by acting on the compulsion are the physical symptoms relieved. This reinforces the behaviour so that every time the person is presented with the same trigger, their body has the same response. The pattern is created, like a program in our mind that runs automatically, and the person is helpless to stop the behaviour.
This is how we learn most things that have become second nature, such as opening a door, cooking a meal, or driving a car. When we do these tasks we don’t have to consciously think about every move we make. Our subconscious has coded the necessary information just like a computer program, and instructs us how to act. But if something goes wrong, for example if you get into an accident while driving, you’ll quickly learn from that experience so you don’t repeat the mistake.
These subconscious programs work fine for small things we take for granted, like brushing our teeth or getting dressed. Unfortunately, we also have unhealthy subconscious drives, and these are responsible for the compulsions and obsessions that seem so unbreakable.
The good news is unhealthy, negative programming can be treated to replace it with new, positive programming. People aren’t born with OCD, it is a learned behaviour.
