Are you feeling confused, indecisive or lost? Don’t know what to do for the best? Perhaps you’re overwhelmed with sadness and have an empty feeling. There could be shame or guilt about something you’ve done that is a heavy burden. These are all things that normal people come to therapy about and the chance to share, with someone who won’t judge and will hold what you share confidentially , allows you to find clarity, awareness, answers and direction to help you move forward, perhaps make changes and move on with your life with contentment.

If you are like most people, you are probably considering therapy because you want to change something. This might be the way you feel or behave; it might be how you believe other people see you, or how you see yourself. It might be things you think about or dwell upon, or the way you get on (or don’t) with others. Whatever it is, individual therapy provides a space to talk about what it is you want to change and to learn how to bring that change about. A space that is safe, confidential and non-judgemental. As your therapist I see myself as someone who can support you on all aspects of your life journey.

Psychotherapy can help you to gently gain a new perspective on your relationships, without judgement, in a confidential space. Although relational patterns may have served you well in the past, perhaps you feel they are not helpful to you any longer. You may feel that things are just not working out, without ever really understanding why. Perhaps you keep choosing particular people as friends or partners that you know are not healthy but can't resist anyway. Perhaps this makes you feel anxious, depressed or you can't sleep at night and well meaning advice from friends of family doesn't seem to help.

Hi. I’m Mirek. Some people seek help because they experience a variety of emotional challenges (e.g. depression, anxiety, addictive tendencies, issues within relationships, unhelpful patterns of relating, and they want to feel better. Counselling and psychotherapy can help with it, but most importantly it can help with changing internal landscapes so that we then better understand how we function and have an idea where our troubles come from. Knowing that it is then easier to manage ourselves with anything that live throws at us. There is nothing better than a sense of freedom from old unhealthy patterns of relating!

Hoarding Counsellors

What is the most effective treatment for hoarding?

Cognitive behaviour therapy (CBT) has been well-studied in the treatment of hoarding. This type of therapy includes changing beliefs surrounding possessions, as well as learning how to discard items and reduce acquisitions. The hoarder may also gain much-needed organizational skills. Another useful therapy may be compassion-focused therapy, which can address emotion regulation and negative self-perception.

How long does therapy for hoarding take?

Although treatment can vary, most people demonstrate improvement after 23 sessions, with some showing improvement after just a few sessions. Researchers have developed a 26-session cognitive behavioral program. People who hoard may need “maintenance” sessions over the years if the problem arises repeatedly.

Are there medications for hoarding?

The more commonly-prescribed medications for hoarding are including antidepressants, including selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs), and serotonin-norepinephrine reuptake inhibitors (SNRIs). This can include drugs such as venlafaxine and paroxetine. And because hoarding disorder is related to obsessive-compulsive disorder, medications for OCD, such as clomipramine, may be effective for hoarding as well.

Can hoarding come back after treatment?

Hoarding is a chronic disorder and it can last throughout an individual’s lifetime. Regularly checking in with a psychotherapist can help manage symptoms long-term. A good therapist will help the person learn needed skills including decision-making, organization, and stress reduction. The patient will gain a better perspective and the need to cling to useless items will lessen.
