Excellence in processing through scientific research

The Clinique des TOCs® is the only clinic entirely dedicated to obsessive compulsive disorder in all its forms. The main goal of our clinic is to provide the most effective, brief and efficient treatment for all forms of Obsessive Compulsive Disorder.

From hand washing to counting, obsessive fixations to hair pulling, binge eating or vomiting and self-harm, our unique treatment is developed and advanced through our ongoing scientific research.

Our clinical research process involves the coordinated and continuous feedback from each of our clinics in Ireland, Italy, Malta and France, in which we continually seek to perfect our treatment of Obsessive Compulsive Disorder.

Overcome Obsessive Compulsive Disorder

We help our patients overcome their obsessive compulsive disorder. Our goal is to provide you with the understanding and keys necessary to resolve this disorder.

At the Clinique des TOCs®, it is possible to permanently overcome obsessive compulsive disorder. With our effective professional treatment and the support of family and friends when needed, it is possible to eradicate all traces of OCD in a person's life.

Strategic Brief Therapy®

Using over 25 years of clinical research and with thousands of patients successfully treated using our intervention model known as Brief Strategic Therapy®, we have proven (Gibson 2014, 2016, 2019a, 2019b, 2019c, Nardone 2013, Portelli, 2007) that while human problems can be persistent, complicated, and painful, we don't always need some long, drawn-out form of intervention to fix the problem and alleviate the suffering.

Our model has proven to be the most effective and efficient form of treatment for obsessive-compulsive disorder currently available anywhere (Ray & Nardone 2007).

Whether you suffer from obsessive compulsive disorder or are a family member, friend, or healthcare professional, this site aims to provide you with information about the signs, symptoms, and effective treatment for obsessive compulsive disorder.
