Whatever it is you or a loved one is struggling with, we are here to help

We all develop attachments to certain objects, especially ones of sentimental value – heirlooms, objects of symbolic value, objects that mark moments of personal significance in our histories. However, when the acquisition of objects becomes compulsive and the prospect of discarding things can cause a significant degree of distress for the person concerned, this is recognised as hoarding. This can lead to living spaces that can be very restricted owing to so much space being taken up by belongings and possessions.  

Up until recently, hoarding has been thought to be associated with OCD, however it is now recognised as a distinct difficulty. Hoarding can have a significant impact on one’s relationships and ability to function.  

At Psychology Sussex, we recognise that it is important not just to focus on the individual who is hoarding but also the significant others around them in order that may need to be supported in supporting the individual concerned. Moreover, because hoarding can have knock-on effects for those around the individual concerned, it is important that this wider focus take into consideration these relations and how others may be affected.  

Whether you or someone you are concerned about have concerns about hoarding, at Psychology Sussex we have experienced practitioners that would be happy to help you.
