Hoarding can be described as the behaviour of acquiring, purchasing or saving possessions that have little or no value to oneself. Some of it’s symptoms include persistent difficulty in discarding possessions regardless of their value. This behaviour is accompanied with a strong desire to save items or distress that is usually associated with parting with possessions that occupy a large space of the living areas of your home or office to the extent that their intended use is no longer possible.
This is evident by inability to cook in the kitchen or even sleep in the bedroom. Excessive buying and collection of items that are not needed or which there is no available space to accommodate them.
In order to effectively deal with this kind of a situation, you need to acknowledge and identify the problem. Experts advice that chronic hoarding can be identified when rooms in a home become unusable for their intended purpose.
Getting started is the hardest part. Small achievable goals will be set to help you to recognize the progress you are making. I will not force you to let go of any items. The whole process will be consensual.
