Question about English (UK)

Can anybody tell me what this text means?

“In an effort to prevent one of her fears coming true, Catherine would feel compelled to carry out a repetitive physical or mental act - in technical terms the fear is the "obsession" and the repetitive act is the "compulsion". This would provide temporary relief from the anxiety, but then it might return, compelling her to repeat the behaviour again and again.”

This is about OCD (obsessive compulsive disorder) by the way.

So this says repetitive act -either mental or physical- helps her to get over her obsessive fears temporarily, but it would be back because it’s something she is obsessed??? :/
