OCD Counselling - Obsessive Compulsive Disorder

What causes OCD isn’t always clear, but several factors are thought to play a role, including:

  • Life events – some OCD suffered develop the condition as a result of trauma, neglect, abuse, bullying, childbirth or bereavement.
  • Family members with OCD – you are more likely to develop OCD if a family member has it (though this does not mean that it is genetic).
  • Experiences growing up – many people with OCD might have experienced strict parents leading to feelings that things have to be right or done a certain way.
  • Difficulty with anxiety – people with anxiety might be more likely to experience intrusive thoughts, and OCD.
  • Personality traits – some people are naturally meticulous and methodical or have high levels of anxiety, which can make OCD more likely (for example, perfectionism is related strongly with OCD).

The counselling was really great, and I was even put in contact with a person who would support me with my inquiry at work, and represent me if needed. Having professional support in this matter took such a load off my mind.
