Characterised by the presence of thoughts that are uncontrollable and repetitive in nature, paired with behaviours or rituals that you feel compelled to perform, Obsessive Compulsive Disorder is a mental health condition when anxiety is present.

Often, the thoughts, or obsessions, are involuntary, and at times irrational. They are also usually paired with behaviours, or compulsions that feel as if they must be carried out. These compulsions are usually performed as an attempt to stop the obsessive thoughts.

OCD can occur at any age, and while there may be feelings of shame around it for the sufferer, with help and support, many people are able to live a full & meaningful life.

    OCD can impact your life in numerous ways. Often one of the biggest impacts is that the obsessions and compulsions can take up a lot the person’s time. And because they feel the need to devote the time to these obsessions and compulsions, it can interfere with their work, and close relationships. In some instances, when someone has OCD, they may try to avoid certain places, or activities, that may trigger their OCD. Sometimes it can lead to people becoming housebound in order to avoid any possible triggers.
