Communication-Focused Therapy (CFT) is a psychotherapy developed by the author, which can be applied to a number of mental health conditions, including obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD). The flows of internal and external communication maintain the functioning and the development of the individual in the world. If a communication pattern or channel does not serve its intended purpose anymore, it can lead to a disconnect from oneself and from others. The disconnect internally and externally shows itself in different symptoms. The disconnect also contributes to more uncertainty about the own basic parameters, such as values, needs and aspiration, which can then lead to maladaptive decisions in life. Communication-Focused Therapy (CFT) works directly with communication about communication to restores the autoregulatory processes that can help to reverse the condition.
