The Trichotillomania Learning Center has estimated that between 6 and 8 million Americans are suffering from the condition at any one time.
If you believe you may be suffering from Trichotillomania then your first port of call should always be visiting your GP who will be able to provide you with professional advice and support. An option you may also want to consider is that of hypnotherapy. A hypnotherapist will be able to tap into your subconscious mind. Your subconscious mind is the part of your brain which processes the automatic reactions we do throughout the day. This could be anything from automatically locking the back door when leaving the house through to switching on your computer without thinking when arriving at work.
Hypnosis will work to change these actions that we perform without thinking. The practitioner will work with individuals in order to programme their subconscious into thinking of hair pulling as a negative habit, meaning that when you go to pull your hair in the future your negative reaction will stop you from doing so.
