Obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD) treatment

Obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD) is a serious mental health condition that causes individuals to experience a variety of symptoms that typically fall into one of two categories: ‘obsessions’ and/or ‘compulsions’.

Obsessions are characterised by persistent and irrational thoughts or urges, and compulsions refer to physical or mental acts that individuals feel compelled to perform. Some individuals who develop OCD only experience one type of symptom, whilst others can experience both obsessions and compulsions. These irrational thoughts and behaviours can become extremely time consuming and can seem impossible to stop or control. 

At Priory, we understand that the symptoms of OCD can be distressing and confusing. As such, our world class team of specialist psychiatrists, psychologists, therapists and other highly qualified mental health professionals are committed to providing comprehensive and personalised OCD treatment at our hospitals and wellbeing centres. We are dedicated to enabling you to address the causes and underlying triggers for your irrational thoughts and behaviours, improve your symptoms and regain control of your life.

Experienced and specialist OCD treatment at Priory

Our exceptional treatment team have a wealth of clinical experience in treating OCD, and are able to deliver a wide range of established therapeutic interventions to help you to overcome your OCD and return to the healthy, fulfilling and productive life that you deserve. Our OCD treatment specialists are also able to prescribe medication to complement the therapeutic element of treatment, if this is deemed as being the best approach for you.

Each individual who seeks OCD treatment and support at Priory will be placed at the centre of their treatment journey and will benefit from a truly bespoke treatment experience in order to produce the most positive individual outcomes. Our highly specialised, supportive and compassionate treatment environments ensure that you are provided with a peaceful and therapeutic setting in which to address your challenges and achieve a full and sustainable recovery.

At Priory, we recognise that without expert support, OCD has the potential to become increasingly worse over time and can have a devastating impact on all areas of your life, as well as the lives of those who are closest to you.

To celebrate the opening of our extended private inpatient service, over the Summer period Priory Hospital Roehampton is offering a 10% discount for the entire stay of self-pay, private inpatient admissions that take place before 31st August 2019.

Regain control of your life and seek help for OCD

Due to the intense and time-consuming symptoms that are associated with this condition, individuals with OCD may find it hard to hold down regular employment and be productive in their day-to-day life.

In addition, family members and friends may also become involved in your obsessions, compulsions and rituals which can have a detrimental impact on their lives and wellbeing, and can cause them to experience significant distress.

However, it is crucial to understand that OCD is treatable, and the most important first step towards regaining control of your life is to seek specialist support.

This page was clinically reviewed by Professor David Veale (MBBS, BSc, MD, FBPsS, FRCPsych, FBABCP, MPhil) in May 2018, and is scheduled to be reviewed again in May 2020. To view all Priory OCD specialists, please click here.
