Some individuals develop a problem with pulling out hairs from their body as a nervous habit. Many individuals often have little awareness of what they are doing until it is too late. Other individuals experience intense emotional relief when they pull out hairs.
Hair pulling can be a devastating problem leading to emotional and medical consequences.
We use a proven, behavioral protocol to help individuals break their hair-pulling pattern. Working with a knowledgeable clinician in a structured way makes it possible to beat hair pulling that has been going on for years. Patients end up being more aware of their emotional state, more aware of when they are vulnerable, and able to engage in competing behaviors when they have urges to pull.
