Psychotherapy can help you identify the unwanted, intrusive thoughts (obsessions) which make you uncomfortable, causing you to do an action which will decrease your level of anxiety (the compulsion) of OCD. Once you can identify it, you will be better able to gradually decrease the compulsions, which can hopefully make things easier on those around you.
