What is Trichotillomania?

One of the many behaviors clients come to see me about is Hair Pulling.  An irresistible urge to pull hair from your body, usually scalp and eyebrows.  This is a learnt behavior, a subconscious response to certain negative feelings which come up throughout the day, at home, work or an educational environment.  Many people hide this behavior as they feel embarrassed or ashamed and this spirals into guilt feelings which in turn, leads to further bouts of pulling – the pattern continues.  As a Certified Hypnotherapist,  I coach you to work directly with that part of your mind that keeps repeating your old habit of pulling your hair. Generally it may take up to  8 sessions.  Stopping your pulling is your goal. When trichotillomania is no longer an issue and you feel empowered, then there is no need to continue with the sessions.

Having worked with thousands of clients, I have dealt with many issues, habits and symptoms and believe it or not, some people will keep suffering and hold onto their issue/problem/habit.  So much so, they look on me being the facilitator as the enemy, the one who is calling them out.   The question I ask myself, and my client, is "What are you getting out of having this behavior/issue/symptom ?" This is known in my world as the secondary gain or negative payoff in having their problem.  For many it…

What is Self-Esteem ?

  Let me start off 2019 by looking back over thousands of client sessions which I have facilitated and look at what they all have in common - LOW SELF ESTEEM.  In fact, let us look at what Self Esteem really is. A definition may be "It refers to an individual's sense of his or her value or worth, or the extent to which a person values, approves of, appreciates, prizes, or likes him or herself (Blascovich & Tomaka, 1991)."  This may well be a good definition but how this…
