Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD)

OCD is an anxiety-related condition with two fundamental aspects: obsessive, intrusive thoughts about contamination, harm occurring or going against social norms; and the compulsive behaviours or rituals that accompany these thoughts.

These behaviours may include: repeatedly washing ones hands, checking, hoarding, counting or other rituals. These thoughts and behaviours can become quite distressing and may end up dominating a person's life.

People with OCD tend to avoid certain objects or situations that lead to anxiety.

Psychological therapy presents ways to overcome this anxiety and other symptoms of OCD.
