Treatment tailored to your needs

Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD) Treatment in London

Obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) is a mental health condition that results in individuals experiencing two distinct categories of symptoms: ‘obsessions’ and/or ‘compulsions’. Some people with OCD experience only one type of symptom, whereas others can experience both obsessions and compulsions.

Obsessions refer to persistent intrusive thoughts or urges, and compulsions are characterised by repetitive physical or mental acts that individuals feel compelled to perform. These irrational thoughts and behaviours can seem impossible to control or stop, and can be extremely time consuming. At North London, we understand that the symptoms of OCD can be confusing and distressing. Our OCD experts are able to work closely with you as part of a tailored treatment plan in order to address the source and triggers of your obsessions and/or compulsions, helping you to manage these and regain control of your life.

As part of treatment at North London, patients are expected to conduct exposure or behavioural experiments at least three times a day, complete daily homework diaries and undertake weekly outcome ratings. Patients receive individual therapy sessions and participate in specialised therapy groups, which have been purposefully designed to tackle OCD and BDD.

Our specialist obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) service at North London, adheres to robust National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) guidelines, and is commissioned by NHS England and care commissioning groups (CCGs). 

Our consultant Professor David Veale is an international expert in OCD and BDD and has published both academic papers and self-help materials on these conditions.
