Obsessive Compulsive


Obsessions are recurrent, unwanted thoughts or images that create distress. Compulsions refer to repetitive behaviours or mental acts.  When there are unwanted thoughts or images people with Obsessive-Compulsive tendencies will repeat a behaviour to diminish the negative impact of the unwanted thoughts or images.  Some of Obsessive-Compulsive themes include but are not exclusive to:  washing/cleaning, repeated actions, reassurance seeking, hoarding, checking, counting, ordering/arranging and tapping.
