Health "There’s nothing wrong with a bit of obsessiveness when it .es to house-cleaning – after all it is a never-ending task and the benefits are obvious, but some folks take it to the extreme – and there is a point beyond which the obsession is no longer healthy. If you spend an inordinate amount of time cleaning and worrying about cleaning, you may be suffering from Obsessive-.pulsive Disorder (OCD), a .monly bandied-about term which is often misunderstood but for the ones who do suffer from it, it can be.e a truly debilitating problem. OCD refers to people who have invasive thoughts that are hard to control and who perform actions that are repetitive and ritualistic. .mon thoughts and behaviour from OCD sufferers often may include an inability to stop thinking about a particular subject or an irresistible desire towards performing repetitive actions. An OCD sufferer may, for instance be unable to stop worrying whether the gas or a faucet was left on or may find themselves washing their hands every few minutes. People with OCD may recognize the futility of such thoughts and actions but are not able to stop them. Fortunately, there are effective treatments for OCD, and many have found that they were able to over.e the condition through self-help methods, or through counseling. Dealing with the problem involves first recognizing it, then redirecting the thoughts and behaviour in other directions and developing an ability to not identify with the intrusive, unwanted thoughts and urges. Medication can help as well, but often ac.panying therapy and behaviour modification. Two .mon approaches for treating OCD are Cognitive Therapy and Exposure and Response Prevention therapy. Essentially, the Cognitive Therapy method helps the patient learn ways to minimize the impact of the overwhelming thoughts and to redirect their behaviour in healthy directions. Exposure and Response prevention focuses on having the OCD sufferer confront his or her fears by stopping the ac.panying behaviour patterns associated with the obsessive thoughts, which can help the person slowly lose the urge and begin to recognize that he or she doesn’t need the ritual anymore. One way a .pulsive cleaner can help .e to terms with the problem is to allow someone else to be in charge of the housecleaning, whether it be the normal ongoing cleaning and maintenance or whether it is time for an end of tenancy cleaning , for instance. For maid service or for domestic cleaning London offers a wide choice of reputable firms who hate dirt almost as much as the OCD sufferer does, so there is hope – OCD Sufferers Untie!
