“I just can’t stop it, I have to do it or I feel like something bad is going to happen”
I asked a number of people what they thought of when they heard Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD) and all of them said the need to clean excessively. However for some people their OCD behaviour may have nothing to do with having a obsessive cleaning ritual at all!
OCD is when a person has an obsession or compulsion that becomes repeated constantly as a cycle of behaviour. There are obtrusive thoughts and the intensity can be distressing.
Looking at the reasons behind what triggered these behaviours and addressing these with the subconscious mind giving it reasons why it needs to change is the way forward.
