How to Stop Compulsive Hand Washing

Hypnosis can help you overcome this most disruptive of compulsions

Compulsive Hand Washing

Do you find yourself getting really anxious or stressed if you think your hands might be at all dirty?

Have you got caught up in a compulsive pattern of washing your hands so often that it is really interfering with your life?

People who fall into obsessive compulsive behavior patterns are burdened by two worries. They worry that if they don't do their behavior, such as washing their hands, something very bad (though usually unspecified) will happen.

And on top of that, they worry that they are going mad. Surely only crazy people behave like this?

Neither of these worries is trivial. They both cause high levels of anxiety and stress. So the first thing to say is that obsessive compulsive hand washing is not a sign that you are going mad.

What it indicates is that an overly powerful negative emotional tag has become attached to something (dirt on your hands) that wouldn't normally have any emotional impact on you.

How emotion is linked to obsessive compulsive behavior

This kind of emotional tagging can happen for various reasons, and sometimes quite accidentally. Essentially, we make an association between an occurrence in our environment, and the emotional state that we happen to be in at the time.

If this is a negative emotional state, this gets 'stuck on' to the occurrence in our brains. So when whatever it was happens again, so does the negative emotion.

The consequence is that, even though you might know full well that what you are doing doesn't make any rational, objective sense, the feeling associated with it is so strong that you feel compelled to go along with it. You get strung along by the emotional tag.

Fortunately, you are not doomed to be at the mercy of this compulsion forever. It is in essence a piece of your brain 'programming' that's got a mistake in it. But brain programming is not fixed. You can modify it very effectively. And the best and easiest way to modify it is through hypnosis.

Hypnosis can help you overcome the urge to engage in compulsive hand washing

Stop Compulsive Hand Washing is an audio hypnosis session developed by psychologists that is based solidly on modern understandings of how the brain develops patterned behavior. The hypnotic trance is the ideal state in which to close down unwanted patterns and establish and strengthen healthy and beneficial patterns.

As you learn to relax more and more deeply each time you listen to this download, your brain will take in and process carefully constructed hypnotic suggestions at an unconscious level. You will notice a number of significant changes taking place. You'll find yourself

  • feeling calmer and less anxious in life generally
  • becoming less aware of the triggering factors - and even forgetting to notice them at all
  • naturally doing other things at times when the behavior would once have taken over
  • developing appropriate patterns of self care that are free of emotion
  • enjoying life more
