A volunteer based UK non-profit, Trichotillomania Support helps worldwide with BFRBs (Body Focused Repetitive Behaviours) including cheek chewing, skin picking and trichotillomania - pulling hair and plucking eyelashes. We're keen to hear about you! Do take a moment, relax and let us know your circumstances.
We offer a specialist treatment program tailored specifically to trichotillomania and other BFRB's such as skin picking, cheek chewing and nail biting. Coaching is delivered via video chat in partnership with coaching.care and a 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.
You may not need coaching to become pull-free. We have a range of support available from free tips and advice, to hypnotherapy recordings, to fiddle aids. See what we have to offer.
The Trichotillomania Test. If you answer "yes" to at least 4 of the following questions, we recommend you get in touch for support:
Is hair pulling having a negative impact on your relationships?
Is hair pulling preventing you from doing things you would like to do, e.g. swimming, progressing at work, enjoying a social life?
Is the urge to pull occurring so often that it's making it difficult for you to concentrate and complete other tasks?
Would you say that the urges to pull are very strong or severely strong?
Do you find it difficult to stop pulling once you start, losing time to it that you'd rather not?
Are you unable to resist the urge to pull?
Is hair-pulling causing you distress or to feel negatively about yourself?
Has hair-pulling resulted in noticeable physical damage? e.g. bald spots or complete baldness, no eyelashes.
