OCD Counselling in York

Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) is a form of therapy rooted in Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) that can help with a wide range of issues, including depression, anxiety, and low self-esteem.

ACT focuses on changing your relationship with your thoughts rather than trying to control them. By developing more flexible thinking patterns, you can learn to let go of unhelpful thoughts and focus on living a meaningful life.

Here at York Therapy Clinic, our network of psychologists and therapists in York can help you to observe your thoughts and feelings without judgement and take steps towards achieving your goals.

Although the exact cause of OCD is unknown, several factors are likely involved. These include:

  • Life Events: Traumatic experiences, abuse, or childbirth can trigger OCD in some individuals.
  • Family History: Having a family member with OCD increases your risk.
  • Childhood Experiences: Growing up with strict parents or a focus on orderliness may contribute to OCD.
  • Anxiety: People with anxiety are more prone to intrusive thoughts, which can fuel OCD.
  • Personality Traits: Perfectionism and a tendency towards meticulousness may increase the risk of OCD.
