Lightroom CC Helper memory issue

I have a substantial photo library which, for historical reasons, has previously been split between a desktop PC and my MacBook Pro. Lightroom CC seemed like a sensible solution for me. However, the Adobe Lightroom CC helper is making my MacBook Pro feel as slow as the 2009 computer it replaced last year. If I kill the Lightroom CC Helper from Activity Monitor then I get a speedy Mac again. I suspect this is due to its memory use: 10.02 GB. Surely this is not intended!

Ouch, that doesn't sound good. Is it syncing at the time?

Yes. My entire catalogue contains around 13,000 images. Interestingly, now that it has stopped syncing things are back to normal.
