Hoarding – Dr Rose Gillett

Dr Rose Gillett       Quals: B Psych (Hons), D Psych (Clin), MAPS

Hoarding: Hoarding is a disorder of attachment, over attachment to objects and a compulsive need to acquire more can lead to a cluttered home, isolation from friends and loved ones, feelings of shame, and intense distress at the thought of cleaning house. In addition to the psychological concerns associated with hoarding, a cluttered home leaves residents and neighbours at a greater risk of fire, hygiene concerns, falls and injuries.

Counselling Approach: When working with hoarding, home visits become essential. An initial session may be held at the office to gain information, though the majority of sessions will be conducted in the home to help the client work through the emotions tied to their belongings and learn to say goodbye. Treatment also focuses on acquiring new items and learning to window shop.

Current Availability: Usually within one week.
