Over the years, I have helped many people plagued by intrusive thoughts. Most of those had previously tried other therapies, such as CBT, but to no avail. It doesn't matter how long you've suffered intrusive thoughts, or how severe they are, they CAN be completely eliminated!
About Intrusive thoughts
An intrusive thought is an unwelcome and unpleasant thought, image, or idea that can feel difficult to manage or stop and may become an obsession. It is also known as 'Pure O' (for 'Obsession').
The content of these thoughts are often about harming yourself or others, or may be sexual in nature.
Most Pure O sufferers know that their thoughts and behaviour are irrational but feel incapable of stopping them. Avoidance of some situations or people is also common, as you may fear triggering the thoughts. This can have a significant impact on your confidence and self-esteem and as a result, your career, relationships and lifestyle.
Logically, you may know that the content of the intrusive thoughts is ridiculous, but yet you may torment yourself with the notion that there is some meaning behind the thoughts. Or you may tell yourself that you must be a terrible person to have such a thought. The obsessive focusing, over-analysing and desperate attempts to stop the thoughts are the very processes that maintain and escalate them. This results in the sufferer even more powerless and out of control.
I compare fighting away intrusive thoughts to being in quicksand - the more effort you put in to free yourself, the deeper you sink. This results in even more anxiety and further perpetuates the intrusive thoughts cycle.
You CAN take stop intrusive thoughts. Here's how...
If you want reliable, effective help to eliminate intrusive thoughts, I can help you to take back control over your thoughts, instead of feeling that they are controlling you, in just a few empowering and enlightening sessions.
Unlike CBT, what I offer is much more than just a series of techniques to help you try to fire-fight away the thoughts.
You will gain invaluable insight into yourself and true driving forces behind the thoughts, allowing you to think very differently and feel back in control. You'll discover that there is nothing deep-rooted about these thoughts, and that its much simpler than you may have ever believed to take control of your thinking
