Understanding Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD)

WHAT IS OCD?

Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder (OCD) is a mental health disorder that is composed of two parts: Obsessions and Compulsions.

Obsessions

Are unwanted doubts, thoughts, images, and impulses that trigger intense distressing feelings. Emotions such as fear, anxiety, shame, guilt, disgust, and anger typically emerge. These thoughts are repetitive. Many OCD sufferers recognize their doubts do not align with who they are as individuals and seem irrational; however, they feel very real which leads to them performing compulsive behaviors.

Compulsions

Are the behaviors the individual engages in to eliminate these distressing doubts, thoughts, images, and impulses (the obsessions cause). OCD sufferers carry out compulsive behaviors to relieve the distress. 

Understanding what drives a person to continue performing the seemingly nonsensical and repetitive behaviors that are involved in Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder (OCD) is difficult, especially for loved ones.  It can be helpful to try and understand how the problem is maintained.

Two beliefs that are common in many people with OCD:

  • Inflated responsibility – belief that they are responsible for preventing harm coming to themselves, a loved one or others.
  • Overestimation of threat – belief that things are riskier than they are even if the level of danger is assessed to be relatively low by the person with OCD.


OCD is driven by doubts and the fear of consequences, no matter how unlikely they are. For someone with OCD, the perceived level of risk is turned on its head, a 0.01% risk feels as likely to happen as a 99.9% risk.

Each individual’s experience of Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder is diverse and complex.

Common Categories include: 

  • Checking
  • Contamination / Mental Contamination
  • Symmetry and ordering
  • Ruminations / Intrusive Thoughts
  • Hoarding

Understanding Anxiety

What Are Anxiety Disorders?

Anxiety is a normal human emotion that everyone experiences at one time or another, for instance, when faced with a problem at work, before taking a test, or making a big decision. 

Anxiety disorders, however, are different. The distress they cause is so great that it interferes with a person’s ability to lead a normal life. 

Anxiety disorders develop from a complex set of risk factors that include: genetics, brain chemistry, personality and life events. 

For people with anxiety disorders, worry and fear are constant and overwhelming, and can be crippling.

The types of anxiety disorders our team treats, include generalized anxiety disorder (GAD) panic disorder, social anxiety disorder, and specific phobias.
