Obsessive Compulsive Disorder

At Buddhi Clinic we are able to bring together a unique skill set in managing Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder

Overview

Patients with OCD present with obsessions (repetitive thoughts and/or images) and compulsions (repetitive actions that mitigate the obsessions).

Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder (OCD) is a relatively common, chronic, and long-lasting disorder in which a person has uncontrollable, recurring thoughts (obsessions) and/or behaviors (compulsions) that he or she feels the urge to repeat over and over.

People with OCD may have symptoms of obsessions, compulsions, or both. These symptoms can interfere with all aspects of life, such as work, school, and personal relationships.

Compulsions are repetitive behaviors that a person with OCD feels the urge to do in response to an obsessive thought. Common compulsions include:

Diagnosis

While the diagnosis is clinical, brain imaging, electrophysiology, blood tests to rule out reversible causes or indeed contributing factors and a thorough pre-rehabilitation assessment including evaluation for co-morbidities (associated conditions) will be required in all instances. At Buddhi Clinic our assessment includes standard outcome indicators for activities of daily life, quality of life, neuro-disability and mental health.

Treatment

At Buddhi Clinic we approach OCD from a true bio-psycho-social perspective. From brain mapping through detailed psychometric assessment to an evaluation of the social circumstances, we have it all covered. Beyond medication, we use repetitive Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation with a 4 Tesla Neurosoft apparatus in the treatment of Obsessive Compulsive Disorder, a FDA approved approach. We also practise specialised Cognitive Behaviour Therapy and Exposure & Response Prevention techniques, and a range of holistic interventions from Ayurveda, Naturopathy & Yoga designed to heal the mind.
