Do you have unwanted compulsive thoughts or impulses? A recent study of over 800 college students from all across the globe found that 94% of them experience unwanted compulsive thoughts and desires.
The research confirms that this issue is a common one. Even the Bible says, “That no temptation has seized you except that which is common to man” 1 Cor. 10:13. For those that have been diagnosed with Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD), the research may be comforting; it reassures them that they are really not that different from the rest of society.
The research concludes that it’s not really these thoughts and impulses that are the problem. It is what you make of them. This reaffirms the approach that Total Health Guidance takes when helping people overcome obsessive thoughts and tendencies. We use cognitive and behavioral interventions for helping people overcome Obsessive Compulsive Disorder and intertwine that with a spiritual approach to alleviate the root cause. In most cases, clients see significant improvement in as little as two sessions. If you or someone you love struggles with obsessive compulsive thoughts, don’t wait any longer to get help.
