POCD or Paedophile OCD – How to recover

pocd paedophilia ocdAre you anxious because of disturbing thoughts about children – POCD recovery information for sufferers

If you have reached this page because you or someone you know is experience POCD or paedophile / paedophilia OCD, please read this page very carefully indeed.

First some reassurance… over the last 27 years, the team at the centre have helped many tens of thousands of people (from 5 years to 92 years) who suffer with POCD to find total recovery.

Some more reassurance – The name given to this condition, POCD, is a badly thought out accronym as it has NOTHING to do with sexual interest in children!!!


POCD isn’t what you might believe or perceive it to be… you certainly aren’t having these thoughts because you are a paedophile.

In 27 years and over 420,000 ex clients not one has turned out to have the slightest interest in the subject they most obsess about.

I also had thoughts about:

  1. Harming myself
  2. Harming others
  3. Disgusting sexual acts
  4. Doing things to children – POCD information
  5. Being gay – HOCD information
  6. Religion and god – ROCD information
  7. Relationships – ROCD2 information
  8. Existence itself
  9. and others

Pure O can take on many forms, the most common are:

  • HOCD – Constantly questioning your sexuality against your natural inclination
  • POCD – Having sexually inappropriate thoughts about children
  • ROCD – Questioning faith or the existance or non-existance of a deity
  • ROCD2 – Constant focus on a relationship or loss of it
  • There are others but they are less common.

Do you…

  • Obsess about being attracted to children, despite knowing you’d never do anything?
  • Avoid children because of the feelings and thoughts they produce in you?
  • Get sexual thoughts and feelings when around children?
  • Worry that you might do something inappropriate to a child?
  • Avoid social situations, family members or friends because of these thoughts?
  • Feel anxious, panicky and even out of control?
  • Feel like you hate yourself for having such thoughts?
  • Fear telling anyone in case you get in trouble?

We know, from experience, how disturbing obsessive, intrussive and disturbing these thoughts can be… how?

Because each and every person who works at our centers has experienced them. All of us were once anxiety disorder sufferers.

Whether you suffer from POCD, ROCD, OCD, panic, anxiety, agoraphobia, depression, health anxiety… indeed any of the conditions associated with anxiety, stress and depression, we have first hand experience of both suffering from them and helping thousands to recover.

  • I personally know how it is to wake every day fighting intrusive, inappropriate thoughts.
  • I know how it feels to have these thoughts banging away inside your head whilst dealing with life circumstances and family issues.
  • I know how it feels to be ashamed of your own thoughts and embarassed or even frightened to talk to anyone about them.
  • I know how anxious, panicky, confused, frustrated and isolated you might be feeling.

I know all this because I was the same once!!

pocd paedophilia ocdMy name is Charles Linden and in 1997 I devised a process that cured my obsessive compulsive disorder, my inappropriate thoughts and every bit of anxiety, panic, agoraphobia, health anxiety, depersonalisation, derealisation and every symptom I tolerated for over 22 years.

Now, that same process is an accredited therapy called LAR and TLM is the programme that delivers it.

The programme has a 100% success rate at reducing anxiety levels from severe to normal in university led trials and it is used in practice and recommended by doctors world-over.

By implementing a very simple structure and by applying some very simple rules, which require no real effort, are invisible to all others and which remove POCD and anxiety at its source, you will recover very quickly indeed.


By, literally, switching off the mechanism that causes the POCD thoughts to be generated and by correcting anxiety levels ‘systemically’ in the autonomic nervous system.

Will it work?

It can’t fail… this is just like eating to satisfy hunger… a preset process controls these thoughts… what we show you deactivates them.

We are here for you.

Our team are BACP member and LAR accredited mental healthcare practitioners trained to deliver anxiety recovery working within strict guidelines.

They will NEVER write down notes, divulge information or judge you… again, because they were you once and also because they are strictly regulated by accredited governing bodies and have thousands of hours experience helping people just like you… over 270,000 in fact… to recover.

No one will know you are following our programme… they will just see you recover.

Is it easy?

Well, put it this way… we help children of 5 years overcome the very same thoughts and anxieties you are experiencing… YES, children get it too, in fact, last week I helped a 12 year old girl who was scared of harming her younger sister in the same way and she is one of thousands we have helped. The treatment and recovery is the same in every case.

You are NOT alone with your POCD. Similarly, we have helped thousands of heterosexual people who think they might be gay, gay people who are frightened by heterosexual thoughts, religious people frightened that they will loose their faith and atheists who are frightened they might be struck down by a bolt of lightening for not believing…  and the list goes on.

There are millions of people on the streets of the world thinking exactly the same thoughts as you… good people with no intention or capacity to harm a soul! No doctor, psychologist or other practitioner has been able to explain where these thoughts come from or what to do about them, why, because they have absolutely no idea!
