About The OCS Clinic
Obsessive-compulsive symptoms are thought to exist upon an obsessive-compulsive spectrum. The OCS Clinic was launched by compassionate psychologists to address the unique treatment needs of different types of OCD on this spectrum, aiming to provide supportive and personalised care to help individuals free themselves from these conditions.
We have experience and training in the gold-standard treatment options for OCD, including CBT and ERP (Exposure and Response Prevention). We are also equipped to work from other frameworks (including ACT, EMDR, ISTDP, Schema Therapy, and more) to support you with any other issues you might be experiencing. See our services, FAQ, & OCD info pages for more information on treatment options.
We offer a supportive space free of judgement, where you can speak freely about your most difficult thoughts without fear of repercussion. We value working collaboratively, at the pace you're ready to work at. All are welcome to express interest in finding support.
