Publisher's Synopsis

Break free from unhelpful rituals and take control of your life

'Clear, practical, focused and useful... extremely helpful both for those who suffer from obsessive compulsive disorder and those who care for them'
Paul Salkovkis, University of Bath

Are you plagued by a recurring thought or idea that just won't go away, or feel the need to wash your hands repeatedly, to hoard things, or to repeatedly check all appliances in the house have been turned off before you leave? These are common symptoms of obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD), a condition that causes distress to hundreds of thousands of people.

Using methods based on real clinical practice and proven cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) techniques, this revised and updated edition teaches you:

· How to face fears and avoided situations
· How to control disturbing thoughts, images and urges
· Strategies to break free from the destructive cycle of obsessive behaviour

Overcoming self-help guides use clinically proven techniques to treat long-standing and disabling conditions, both psychological and physical.
