What are intrusive thoughts?

Intrusive thoughts are unwanted and potentially distressing thoughts that stick in your head and may recur in patterns or increase in severity. People with intrusive thoughts often experience anxiety and even fear, as the nature of the thoughts can be disturbing. It’s not uncommon for people to have intrusive thoughts about violence or certain sexual acts, especially when they are with their loved ones, which can make the condition even more distressing. Intrusive thoughts tend to come out of nowhere, causing significant stress for those who have them. 

 Intrusive thoughts can be misconstrued as a symptom of other conditions, including Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder (OCD). While intrusive thoughts can accompany OCD, such thoughts can often be alleviated by following a set routine, while individuals without OCD can experience intrusive thoughts that vanish as quickly as they arrive. However, due to the nature of these thoughts, they can have a lasting psychological impact.

What are common examples of intrusive thoughts?

Intrusive thoughts can directly impact your ability to live a happy, healthy and fulfilling life. Without treatment, they can cause severe stress and anxiety and disrupt relationships or your career. Below, we outline some of the most common intrusive thoughts.

Do you have unwanted thoughts about:

These are just some of the most frequently experienced intrusive thoughts, but the brain is a unique and complex think tank, which means that you may experience intrusive thoughts about events and situations that are very specific to you and your life. 

A crucial thing to remember is that these thoughts are just thoughts and not necessarily something that you will act on, but they can still be stressful to experience.

At Psymplicity Healthcare, we understand, and we’re here to help. Following a thorough assessment of your symptoms, including their frequency and duration, as well as your medical history, we can diagnose intrusive thoughts and support you to live life without them.

Book an appointment to see how we can help you banish unwanted, disturbing intrusive thoughts. During your consultation, you’ll receive the diagnosis you’ve been waiting for, along with a bespoke plan of treatment for your condition.

The Psymplicity approach to treating intrusive thoughts

At Psymplicity Healthcare, we provide an integrated approach to treating intrusive thoughts. We’ll tailor a treatment plan to suit your needs, using psychological treatments such as cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) and medication, or a combination of the two. 

Intrusive thoughts can be a symptom of other conditions, so we will begin by carrying out an in-depth assessment to understand your symptoms and potential triggers. Then, following a professional diagnosis, we will create a bespoke treatment plan to ensure you receive the most effective form of therapeutic treatment. Your treatment plan may also include the use of medication to manage your symptoms.

Receiving a high-quality treatment plan can be life-changing for individuals who suffer from intrusive thoughts, as the condition can make you feel that you are not in control of your own mind

Intrusive thoughts are absolutely normal. Everyone experiences intrusive thoughts that crop up suddenly, out of the blue and have no relevance whatsoever to what they may be doing or thinking at that time. However, consistent, anxiety-inducing negative intrusive thoughts can be distressing and if they start affecting your health and happiness, seeking professional help will help you cope.

While intrusive thoughts are pretty common and they are mostly fleeting images or thoughts or visuals, continued persistent negative thoughts can sometimes become obsessive in nature. If you face distressing thoughts frequently and they have started to affected your behavior or actions in an obsessive manner, you may be experiencing Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder.

There is no clearly defined reason for the occurrence of intrusive thoughts – they can manifest from nothing. However, if continued intrusive thoughts cause you significant distress, a professional psychiatrist will be able to help you analyse the reason behind some of the thoughts and the rationale behind your fear of them.

The very first step to overcoming intrusive thoughts is to stop fighting them and start accepting them. By accepting them as involuntary thoughts that will occur but eventually pass, you can manage the stress and fear associated with them and can limit the control that these thoughts have over you.

 

While we understand that intrusive thoughts can sometimes be stressful, there is no way to completely stop them from happening. You can however effectively manage them and cope with them by dealing with them through acceptance and overcoming your deep-rooted fears over them. If you find that you are unable to manage these thoughts and they are causing far too much anxiety or distress, our trained specialists are here to help you.

Your intrusive thoughts treatment plan

Following our in-depth assessment and subsequent intrusive thoughts diagnosis, you’ll benefit from a personalised and balanced treatment approach that prioritises managing your symptoms and reducing the impact of the condition on your life.

Step One

To ensure a perfectly tailored treatment plan, we begin with a professional intrusive thoughts diagnosis and produce a personalised assessment report, which you’re welcome to share with your GP. 

Step Two

Our experts will evaluate your particular therapy and medication needs and create a bespoke treatment plan that suits you. We have a deep-rooted understanding of the specific benefits associated with each treatment and medication and can talk you through these during your appointment. 

Step Three

Patients who suffer intrusive thoughts need continued care and support, which is why we recommend follow-up appointments to review progress, discuss any concerns and adjust medication doses to help you on your path to recovery.
