Obsessive-compulsive disorder – our therapy

When compulsive thoughts and actions control your life, normal everyday life is almost impossible. Our therapy at Schoen Clinic Bad Bramstedt will help you to leave your compulsions behind and take control of your life again. After intensive discussions and an obsessive-compulsive disorder test to analyse your current situation in detail, our experts will draw up an individual treatment plan with different individual and group therapies. If necessary, we can also use drugs alongside psychotherapy in consultation with you.

The aim of the treatment is for you to experience that you can cope with unpleasant feelings and sensations triggered by obsessive thoughts even without practising obsessive behaviours. You learn to understand the compulsions you are experiencing and develop techniques to overcome them. Following intensive preparation by your therapist, you will be gradually introduced to situations that trigger your compulsions. With the help of newly acquired strategies and skills, you will be able to overcome them little by little. This kind of self-help should help you to cope with critical situations in the future and prevent relapses following therapy.
