Compulsive Hoarding Treatment Program

A 15-week group treatment program for compulsive hoarding

Running mid-year 2018:

Do you care for someone with Hoarding Disorder?

Our support group for those who care for someone with Hoarding Disorder, Family as Motivators, starts soon.

Family as Motivators information


Do you collect stuff, and do you find it difficult to discard stuff?

Do you want to regain control over your living space?

Let us help you develop strategies and skills to sort and organise your stuff!


The program utilises a specialised form of cognitive behaviour therapy developed to treat hoarding. It aims to build skills to deal with acquiring, discarding, sorting and organising.

Further information, including a helpful video

Participants learn to develop these skills to deal with their hoarding behaviour. Participants remain in control of their possessions at all times. Group treatment can also be supported by individual counselling sessions.


Who’s eligible?

We are looking for participants who have acceptance and motivation to change, are happy to work in a group and have time to commit to the program.
