Assessments are the first step to therapy and where it all starts.You can opt for a phone, video or in-person assessment in London. The therapist will give you an indication of the severity of your OCD, identify your primary and secondary sub-types and make a treatment proposal. They will also screen for other conditions that may exist.
Once you have completed an assessment you will be able to book sessions.
YOUR TREATMENT OPTIONS
Embarking upon effective therapy shouldn't be an open-ended, complicated or mysterious process.
We commit to transparency, to working on your goals and to provide an itinerary and post-treatment summary of the work carried out.
Once you have completed an assessment you can be assured that your therapist will discuss with you a treatment proposal. If you would prefer regular sessions you will be given an indication of the number of sessions and frequency required to meet your specific goals. You and your therapist will then set a date to commence treatment.
Why the intensive format? For those clients who require a swift recovery there is no doubt that our one to one intensive treatment is the optimum choice. For our clients who have moderate or severe OCD and are looking at this option, the strongly habitual elements of OCD respond best to an intensive format. We began seeing higher success rates in our clients who completed our intensive course when we first introduced it in 2003. The evidence we have observed from treating thousands of people with OCD is that the intensive format works more swiftly and has less incidence of relapse than traditional weekly treatment.
So we weren’t surprised when a recent study at the University of California San Diego School of Medicine using PET scans of patients who completed 4 weeks of intensive therapy demonstrated ‘’remarkable and rapid benefits of intensive daily cognitive-behavioural therapy [CBT] for OCD, even for patients who had not responded well to standard treatment previously,"
Furthermore, the lead author, Dr Sanjaya Saxena, in an interview with Medscape Psychiatry, added, “Intensive CBT should be the treatment of choice for patients whose OCD has been refractory to standard treatments."
