How to overcome the barriers and accept the challenges

  • Having an open and positive mindset is really important when offering your help to someone who lives in a Hoarded Home 
  • Take yourself back to the child in you and ask ” Why not?”  instead of the adult you see now “Hell no!”
  • View the barrier/challenge as a learning opportunity,don’t be afraid to ask for help

How to get back up when things don’t quite go the way we had planned

  • Sh*t happens accept it 
  • Postive thinking instead of negative thinking will establish a route out to reach the end goal.

When to acknowledge you just might not be the right person

Fact – You just might not be the right person; trust is important without trust we cannot go forward. 
Bringing your safe, dependable, open and honest self to the table is key.  
However if there is something in your gut or your feelings that you cannot overcome then it is important we recognise this and step back.

  1. Hi,
    I’m a Social Work student and I am writing my dissertation on hoarding disorder.

    I was wondering if you could send me any information or research that I would find useful.
    Thank you
