Stop Hair Pulling with Hypnosis NJ


Trichotillomania (trik-o-til-o-may-nee-uh) is a disorder that involves recurrent, irresistible urges to pull out hair from your scalp, eyebrows, or other parts of your body, despite trying to stop. The cause of trichotillomania is unclear, but like many complex disorders, trichotillomania probably results from a combination of genetic and environmental factors. Also, abnormalities in the natural brain chemicals serotonin and dopamine may play a role in trichotillomania.

Most believe that TTM is a stress/habitual based disorder. This means that following a process of relaxation and distraction can be used. In short, the patient is induced into a deeply relaxed state. The patient is then taught how to self-hypnotise and is given the take-home exercise of going into this relaxed state and developing this as their “comfort place”. Given that the patient is able to access this comfort place on their own and as requested, the therapist can then issue the request to the patient that whenever they feel the urge to pull at their hair, they can then go into that deeply relaxed comfort place. Their hands will then become relaxed. At the following session, the patient can then be given the suggestion that should they feel the urge to pull at their hair; they can choose to stop this behavior. This is then practiced so as to create a pattern of behavior until the initial behavior of pulling is then reversed. One can also try to link a response that is averse to pulling out hair. TTM as a condition has varying stages of severity and symptom transference may be needed in the beginning. Regression may also be used to understand where and when the behavior began. Then review the event or occurrence to understand why it created the pulling behavior and give it the relevant attention.

In short, hypnosis can be used to treat TTM quite effectively, however it is important to note that is should be used in conjunction with other therapies. A holistic approach is needed to effectively treat and cure the condition. And, while it is not a form of therapy that will work for all sufferers, it is best used in conjunction with Cognitive Behavioural Therapy for a more robust treatment program to treat TTM.

What Client’s Say

“The depression I had been battling for the last two years is gone. I pray that it stays this way but I think by reading your material and learning more about managing that happy place that everything will work out.”
Jay - New Jersey
“By nature I’m timid and fearful. Even going to a strange man’s home was completely out of my element. And at times I did think “what the hell am I doing here”. But this was hands down the best decision I have made in a long time!”
“Since our meeting, I have noticed a rather large improvement in my overall anxiety level. I feel very much calm and balanced. I no longer feel like there is impending doom around every corner…which is a huge improvement! “
