Evidence Based: Hi Mimoza, this center is in the US, but provides a lot of information about various treatment approaches for hypochondria; http://ocdla.com/hypochondriasis. The strongest evidence based treatment right now is CBT, particularly ERP (see article), but you may find other approaches provide relief as well. The most important thing is to find a competent therapist you trust. Hope this is helpful. Best
