Religion OCD – Scrupulosity

depression and anxietyIf you have reached this page because you or someone you know is experience Scrupulosity also called ROCD / Religion OCD, please read this page very carefully indeed.

My name is Charles Linden… first some reassurance… over the last 19 years, myself and my team at the centre have helped many tens of thousands of people (from 5 years to 92 years) who suffer with scrupulosity or religious OCD to find total and permanent recovery.

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.

Some more reassuranceReligious OCD isn’t about relationships… it’s about obsession… anxiety based obsession; the inappropriate thoughts created by the mind during the fear response.

ROCD isn’t at all what you might believe or perceive it to be…

Let me be very clear about this… Religious OCD isn’t about:

  • Your faith or belief in a deity
  • Spirituality or beliefs
  • Guilt or shame
  • Whether you are moral or immoral
  • Demonic attacks or damnation
  • Committing blasphemy or offending god
  • Sexual thoughts
  • Obsessive thoughts about god, the devil, 666 etc
  • …or any other religion based thoughts/obsessions

In 19 years and over 180,000 ex clients we have been able to gather a massive quantity of data around the subject of religion OCD and having suffered myself, I can tell you without doubt that it has nothing at all to do with god, religion or faith but it has absolutely everything to do with your underlying high anxiety state. Religion OCD, like all thoughts created by fear and in anxiety disorders, by anxiety, is the manifestation of ‘what if’ thoughts but these thoughts and the anxiety that drives them is neither necessary nor appropriate.

We know, from experience, how disturbing obsessive, intrusive 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 who would experience all of the thoughts, sensations and symptoms high anxiety conditions created in them.

Whether you suffer from POCD, ROCD, HOCD, 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.

Religion OCD is NOT a separate condition, it, like all anxiety conditions, is a manifestation of the fear response and the only difference between ROCD, HOCD, OCD, POCD, Agoraphobia or, indeed any phobia, is the ‘subject matter’… in other words, it’s all about the obsession, NOT what you obsess about.

You’re not anxious about religious ‘stuff’… you are just anxious FULL STOP… in your case, it happens to be focused on religion.

ROCD is NOT a mental illness… in fact, in scientific or biological terms it is quite the opposite… it actually means that your mind is TOO efficient, too capable… but that’s a good thing and you’ll soon discover why… and also why this fact is not only the cause of your anxiety and scrupulosity but also the CURE.

  • 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 embarrassed 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!!

health anxietyIn 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 27 years. My obsessive focuses just STOPPED. I didn’t need to address them separately or discuss, analyze or dissect them… they simply left me. Since that time, I have helped millions of people with anxiety disorders to create the same recoveries… over 180,000 people through my home learning programs alone.

Now, that same process is an accredited therapy called LAR and TLM is the programme that delivers it. The programme that will remove your Religion OCD / scrupulosity and anxiety FULLY.

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 ROCD and anxiety at its source, you will recover very quickly indeed.


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

In plain English… you will learn how deactivate the neurology that causes your obsessions and all inappropriate fears and phobias.

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.

This will remove your Religion OCD… this will remove your anxiety disorder… This will prevent you from suffering ever again.

I was asked yesterday at our Retreat – “How does this work? If psychology, counselling and medication can’t cure me… how does your programme create 100% recovery?”

Because we KNOW what causes anxiety, we KNOW what causes obsessions, we KNOW how to deactivate inappropriate fear and we are excellent

Well, put it this way… this same process is used by children under 10 to overcome their obsessive thoughts and anxiety disorders so, yes, it couldn’t be easier. The treatment and recovery is the same in every case.

believe me, you are NOT alone.

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 lose their faith and atheists who are frightened they might be struck down by a bolt of lightning for not believing…  and the list goes on.
