97% of clients who finish the program say they would (and do) recommend it to others
My experience with the program was excellent. I didn't really have any expectations going into it, and I was really pleasantly surprised. I worked very closely on a weekly, sometimes daily, basis with my therapist to really dive into the core reasons I was pulling. Even though it wasn't a face to face interaction, I was able to work through a lot of issues in detail and look at them from a different perspective. The tools and ideas they present in these 8 week sessions are very useful and efficiently sequenced from start to finish. Overall I experienced a significant decrease in my urges to pull and gained so much knowledge in ways to handle my urges in the future.
[Would I recommend it to someone else who's looking for help with the behaviour?] Absolutely! It is definitely worth the value, and the great news is you have a record of all of your conversations with the therapist to reflect on and re-visit at any time. In a way, this program held me accountable to myself to truly put in the effort and see measurable outcomes with great success.
I am very impressed with this program. It has given me so much to think about and try. I have benefited greatly from it already. The program isn't easy, and I've been quite up and down with my hair pulling, but I now have tools to use to help. I feel much more grounded than I did before. I would absolutely recommend it to someone else who's ready to work on their pulling.
To sum up the program, I would say it was very beneficial and being able to speak with a knowledgeable therapist who knows the struggles and challenges of Trich was great. Where I was when I started the program to where I am now is a night and day difference. I would definitely recommend this program to others. Thank you again!
This program was extremely, fundamentally beneficial to not only my hair pulling behaviour but my wider mental health. My experience with this program was very helpful and insightful as it opened my eyes to fully identifying and understand my own thoughts, feelings and urges. This program has also been challenging in a positive way, with the notes to take away from sessions and small value goals or practice goals for each week (to implement what I've learnt) acting as positive, rewarding challenges.
I would absolutely recommend it to someone else who's looking for help with the behaviour. I think future people must be aware of how much they must do on their side, the commitment and persistence the course requires that, if you devote yourself, can be life-changingly beneficial. This program is a really valuable source of self knowledge / acceptance and encourages to properly break down and analyze the thoughts and feelings you are often faced with.
Despite having done CBT before, this program was slightly different and taught me new techniques particularly acceptance and mindfulness. I would 100% recommend this program to other trich sufferers, especially those who have already done a face-to-face treatment before as I think that is also quite important
I recommend this program for anyone coping with hair pulling. I want to say: I was hesitant before enrolling. It's scary to open up to strangers on the internet and in a way make my situation public. I read as much as I could about online treatments and specifically about "trichstop" and when I was convinced it was a serious company and serious treatment I enrolled. I am very happy I did. I know that I have a lot of suppressed feelings stored up inside of me and that this program can't treat them all. But I got from this program exactly what I needed - tools to cope with my inner feeling and tools to detach between these feelings and the habit of pulling out my hair. So, I want to thank you very much for guiding me and seeing me through this journey. I'm on the right track!!
The program is built very well, mixing theoretical information and actual practice. It is built in a very gradual way that leads us forward by letting us learn the situations where we pull, the specific triggers to pulling, the feelings that lie underneath and how to deal with them. Michaela did a wonderful job leading me forward. Her comments and questions were helpful and gentle.
When I joined the program I was very skeptical, but I decided to give it a go. After the 3rd week I had already noticed huge improvements and that kept me motivated to carry on.
The techniques I learnt in the first 4 sessions were enough to stop the pulling, but the further sessions opened up a new way of living that it's helping me with other problems in my life.
I would happily recommend the therapy to anyone suffering from a repetitive compulsive behavior.
I am very grateful for this program. I do not live near a Trich trained therapist. So it was wonderful to be able to share my thoughts and attempts to grow with someone who was familiar with this and could help guide my own healing journey.
I would definitely recommend it to someone else with Trich. My therapist was kind, warm, thoughtful, and I was surprised how she responded within a weekday of me writing a worksheet entry. If I asked for further clarification, she would respond to this as well. I am very grateful that this Trichstop exists.
In a nutshell, yes, the program was very beneficial. I had not realized how many negative messages I was believing about myself, and I didn't know how to handle the guilt and pressure I lived with. I also didn't realize how directly those negative messages fed my picking and pulling compulsions. I would recommend the program to anyone who needs help with Trichotillomania.
The program was very beneficial and I have been pull free predominantly since I started. [...] Also I am in a Facebook support group and have suggested friends with similar or worse behavior issues to consider TrichStop. The confidentiality, professionalism and reasonable out of pocket rate & option make it very available to most people to get help.
