Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD) involves struggling with obsessive or compulsive behaviors that impact your daily functioning. The brain gets stuck on a particular thought or urge, such as excessive hand washing, checking that the door is locked 20 times, or hoarding things in the house that isn't needed. It's often linked to fears of losing control, of not having enough, or of being contaminated by germs or contaminating others. Therapy can help you identity triggers, monitor and resist urges, and combat obsessive thoughts.

OCD, or Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder, is a mental health condition characterized by persistent and intrusive thoughts (obsessions) and repetitive behaviors or mental acts (compulsions). The compulsions are performed in an attempt to alleviate anxiety caused by the obsessions, but they often provide only temporary relief and can interfere with daily life activities. Symptoms of OCD can vary, but common obsessions include concerns about contamination, a need for order and symmetry, and intrusive, distressing thoughts. Compulsions may include excessive cleaning and hand-washing, repeated checking, counting, or organizing, and mental rituals. OCD can have a significant impact on quality of life, but it is treatable. Effective treatments for OCD include a combination of psychotherapy, specifically Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (CBT) with exposure and response prevention (ERP), and medication. If you or a loved one is struggling with OCD, it is important to seek help from a licensed mental health professional to receive a proper diagnosis and develop a comprehensive treatment plan.

Obsessive-compulsive disorder is another mental disorder that is an improperly used term in pop media as it is usual to have routines that make us better even though it would not distress us if we could not do them. OCD on the other hand is when these routines start to impact the sufferer’s life, they inhibit them from fully functioning daily. Thus, people with OCD can feel as though their impulses and behaviours are outside of their control and are somehow unnatural.

Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder (OCD) reveals a complex interplay between intrusive thoughts, compulsive behaviours, and past relational experiences. Originating from the structure of attachment ties, OCD may appear as a coping strategy to reduce stress and restore control when faced with imagined dangers. Trauma, whether explicit or implicit, can exacerbate these symptoms, deepening the sense of distress and amplifying the need for ritualistic behaviours. Therapy becomes a sanctuary for exploration, providing a safe space to unpack the underlying attachment dynamics and process the echoes of past traumas. By fostering self-compassion and addressing the root causes of distress, individuals can begin to untangle the knots of OCD, reclaiming agency over their thoughts and behaviours, and forging a path towards healing and resilience.
