OBSESSIVE COMPULSIVE DISORDER (OCD)

Individuals with OCD are afflicted by persistent images, thoughts, ideas or an urgent need to carry out some type of ritualistic behaviour. The British Medical Association states that obsessive compulsive behaviour may have a genetic element, but environmental factors also play a part. OCD can have a devastating effect on work and social life due to the compulsion to perform a specific act over and over. Some common symptoms of OCD may include:

  • A need to repeatedly check things
  • Feelings of doubt (e.g., “did I shut the front door?”)
  • Repeated touching and/or counting for long periods of time
  • Repeated hand washing
  • Frequently occurring irrational thoughts
  • Putting clothes on in exactly the same sequence every day
