As compulsions are to behavior, obsessions are to thoughts. Many experience the apparent inability to stop thinking about and focusing on something, frequently something negative or intrusive. Often related to fears and or other emotions, these thoughts persist and tend to keep an individual on high alert.
Though obsessive thoughts are a part of Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD), they can also occur on their own or as a feature of other disorders (including depression, phobias, Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), and generalized anxiety).
Covenant Counseling has several counselors who are able to help clients identify their obsessive thoughts, develop ways to address them, and ultimately to help individuals move toward a restored life.
