Compulsive Behaviour Therapy & Counselling
Compulsive Behaviours are undertaken, often with little thought, to feel good immediately or with a sense of having been ‘driven’ to it, and instant relief is felt, frequently there may be some feelings of guilt or shame felt afterwards, but immediate gratification is felt at the time.
With Obsessive Compusive Disorder, the impulses and drive may be similar, but this sense of relief, this “instant gratification” is often never experienced.
Compulsive Behaviours comes in many forms, but the ones we most frequently encounter are:
- Drug Taking
- Compulsive Shopping or Spending
In each of these examples, carrying out the Compulsive Behaviour provides immediate relief, but long term, usually has a negative impact on the persons life!

Compulsive Behaviours Helped
Compulsive Behaviour can range from simple everyday behaviours such as shopping to more reckless behaviours such as self-harming.
One of the issues with compulsions is that most of them undertaken to excess can have very damaging impacts on people’s lives; the compulsive shopper may find themselves heavily in debt or even bankrupt, while the compulsive self-harmer may place their life in jeopardy on a regular basis.
