Published May 20, 2024

Obsessions caused by OCD are thematic and can affect the most rational of people. Although typically characterized by repetitive behaviors, rules, and rituals that can help an individual relieve their anxieties temporarily, NY Health Hypnosis & Integrative Therapy says that many people with OCD do not engage in compulsive behaviors and instead suffer from intrusive thoughts that may interfere with work, school, and personal relationships.

Rather than direct suggestion, the clinical psychologists at NY Health Hypnosis & Integrative Therapy are trained to provide empathetic support through hypnotherapy, coping strategies, solution-building methods, and various therapies that are proven to help patients address obsessive thinking and irrational fears.

Dr. Kimberly Fishbach aids clients with OCD using dialectical behavioral therapy (DBT) and holistic techniques, while Dr. Laura Faiwiszewski integrates hypnosis with acceptance and commitment therapy. Dr. Irada Yunusova takes a different approach, offering a combination of cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), eye movement desensitization and reprocessing, and exposure and response prevention, all of which are effective in helping patients overcome OCD and anxiety disorders.

Patients with phobias can seek treatment with Dr. Karolina Pekala, who uses hypnosis, CBT, and DBT to help her clients explore their fears at a subconscious level, identify distorted cognitions at the root of the phobia, and regulate their emotions and distress tolerance. Dr. Demi Maglio also uses hypnosis and CBT in addition to mindfulness, allowing clients to observe their fears objectively and reduce the anxiety associated with them.

"Our goal is not to try to talk you out of these thoughts, but to use hypnosis and integrative therapy methods to quiet the mind and help you find the peace that you need," says a spokesperson for the practice. "We aim to empower each person to learn the art of relaxation and creative problem-solving in order to help them overcome their thoughts and fears."
