Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD)

Individuals with obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD) experience difficulties with thoughts that are obsessive (reoccurring). These thoughts can influence unhealthy patterns of behaviour (persistent checking, or washing hands), which can cause difficulties in day-to-day functioning.

For people with OCD, either obsessions (thoughts, ideas, or images) and/or compulsions (acts performed to reduce the anxiousness) are present. Our treatment model for OCD focuses on providing a combination of cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) and dialectical behavioural therapy (DBT).  Our program will help individuals correct unhelpful thoughts and challenge problematic behaviours. The DBT component will provide client’s with useful resources to help manage impulses and regulate their anxiousness.

Based on present research, a combination of CBT and DBT are recommended as the most empirically supported type of treatment for OCD. The model works best if the client is motivated to commit to a structured treatment plan.

We would like to accept everyone into our OCD program, but only those who demonstrate interest and motivation will be selected to participate.
