Compassionate OCD Psychologist in Sydney Offers After-Hours Treatment

Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder is commonly referred to as OCD. This is a common, chronic disorder in which someone has uncontrollable recurring thoughts urging them to repeat a behaviour over and over. This disorder is two-fold because the patient must deal with the obsession and the compulsion. Obsessions are typically repeat thoughts or mental images which may cause anxiety. The compulsions are the repeated behaviours the person is urged to perform in response to the obsessive thoughts.

Symptoms of OCD can develop at any age, and they interfere with every aspect of life. They may range from repeated handwashing and cleaning to putting on clothes a specific way each day, or any range of other odd behaviours. An understanding OCD psychologist can help people gain control of this condition and improve daily function. Compassionate OCD therapy is available to meet your specific needs. Why not reach out to me? I have been practicing as a Clinical Psychologist and OCD therapist for over 25 years and offer psychological services in both public health and corporate settings.

After hours and Saturday appointments are available for your convenience. It is possible to take control through evidence-based treatment administered by an experienced OCD specialist. Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder can disrupt daily life and affect those around us. If you are noticing signs of compulsive behaviour that are more than just a quirk, it may be time to talk with an experienced OCD psychologist about treatment.
