Obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) is a specific anxiety based disorder. OCD typically has two main features: obsessions and compulsions.
Obsessions are unwelcome thoughts, ideas or urges that repeatedly appear in your mind; for example, thinking that you have been contaminated by dirt and germs, or worrying that you haven’t locked the front door. Compulsions are repetitive activities that you feel you have to do in order to manage your worry/anxiety.
This could be something like repeatedly checking a door to make sure it is locked or washing your hands a set number of times.Book a free consultation
