Never heard of him, so no.........but I just Googled him. I don't think I have trouble with OCD:

Brain lock is a term coined by Schwartz to describe obsessive-compulsive behavior and to describe a treatment plan he published in his 1997 book Brain Lock: Free Yourself from Obsessive-Compulsive Behavior.[6][7] In the book Schwartz claims that obsessive-compulsive disorders (OCD) are a result of a bio-chemical imbalance where brain functions will get "locked" in an obsessive-compulsive pattern and that OCD can be self-treated by following four steps,[8] which are listed as follows:[9]
  1. Relabel the obsessive thoughts and compulsive urges as obsessions and compulsions, not as real thoughts.
  2. Reattribute the obsessive thoughts to a brain malfunction called OCD.
  3. Refocus on a wholesome, productive activity for at least fifteen minutes.
  4. Revalue the entire obsession and compulsion group as having no useful meaning in your life.

hi boud, yeah, what he proposed is get realized that the inner voice of you head is not you but is generated by a mental disease, not eought of serotonine in the synapsis process, and the ideas filter of the brain broken, so the four steps have this concept as basis and teach you how to address the inner voice that is not your voice but a brain voice due to your mental condition
