Trichotillomania Test: How Do I Know If I Have It?
The Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Disorders cites this criteria for trichotillomania diagnosis (BFRBs do not have to be a life sentence. Trichotillomania is just one of the body focused conditions we can help)
How Can We Help?
We offer a treatment program based on cognitive behavioural therapy and habit reversal tailored specifically to Trichotillomania and other BFRB's such as skin picking, cheek chewing and nail biting. The course of therapy, which we refer to as "coaching", is delivered by our specialist doctor, herself an ex-hair-puller. As coaching is conducted online, via e-mail and Skype, it is available to anyone, anywhere.
Coaching is suitable for adults and children from the age of 3. Please contact us if you are unsure if coaching is suitable for your child.
Not everyone will need coaching to become pull-free. Our handmade jewellery comes with free instructions for how to use it for habit change.
We do recommend coaching, especially if you answer "yes" to at least 4 of the following questions:
Coaching can be bought as a single hour-long session, an intensive 40 day course, or as a thorough, year-long course of treatment. Places are limited, please contact us for more information and availability here.
If you have one of our BFRB hypnotherapy recordings remember to PLAY it DAILY.
