I work with people who pull their hair. I believe it's possible to make sense of trichotillomania, to achieve some relief, and to understand "why me?" If you pull your hair, you probably feel anxious and depressed when your sense of agency, your 'will' fails to end your pulling. Trichotillomania tends to complicate every relationship because the behavior affects self esteem, disrupts social (and sexual) life, and interferes with productive and creative efforts. Most telling, it means hair thinning or baldness. Sadly, statistics show that people usually pull their hair for more than a decade before they seek help.

I believe individuals with body-focused symptoms, such as trichotillomania, respond well to a one-on-one setting... where there is space to think and feel and change.Talking and listening may be a new experience and, perhaps, a fascinating journey into self-awareness and compassion.

I understand the agony of trichotillomania, and how this demanding behavior affects your whole personality, diminishes your self esteem, robs your energy, is isolating. Although you may have hair pulling in common with others, the role it plays in your life and the underlying meaning is completely unique to you.
