97% of clients who finish the program say they would (and do) recommend it to others
I have been struggling with pulling my hair for over 10 years. I spent several months deciding whether or not I should pay for TrichStop and I'm so glad that I did. Having access to a therapist on such a regular basis (responses received within 24 hours), helped me to explore a variety of different issues. TrichStop has helped me to learn a variety of methods such as mindfulness and how they can successfully be used to help reduce hair pulling.
Most importantly I have learnt to be more kind to myself. At the beginning of the program I felt intense shame in what I was doing, in particular because I pulled from not only my scalp but also from my pubic region. Being able to discuss my thoughts and feelings with Vladimir over a period of 9 weeks has helped me to change how I view myself and my pulling.
TrichStop is a good option for anyone who is set on solving this issue. I didn't stop pulling altogether but I have reduced it to almost zero. I have learned how to stop myself and how to forgive myself which seems like a huge lesson from this perspective and I don't know if that's how I would have thought about it in the beginning. You can say that TrichStop helped with perfectionism and not only with pulling.
I live in a rural area and there aren't many shrinks around here so this program was a life saver. It was also pretty cool that it was anonymous. I 100% recommend it.
The best thing about this program is that it's online and interactive. I like that all of it is in writing too. I could open up about topics I wouldn't dare say out loud to anyone. It helped me deal with guilt and shame. There is so much that the program offers, so many different approaches and techniques. It was very valuable. I hardly pull at all now and Vladimir has really helped me redefine how I relate to myself. It's probably my most important takeaway and the beginning of a whole other journey.
The experience was great. I do feel it was beneficial, it was in my own time frame and got great feedback and tips of how to work through my BFRB. I also like the layout because I could also refer back to it constantly vs going to a therapist and having to try and remember from week to week, where this was really laid out for me to refer back to on my own time. I also learn better by reading information and absorbing it on my own time. I would for sure recommend it for others.
It has been very beneficial, supportive and much more in-depth than I imagined, making me feel more confronted with myself than ever, which has been exactly what I needed. The therapist has asked me some very interesting questions leading me to find out all sorts of things about myself and has always been so understanding and easy to converse with. I am not completely cured but I have a lot more confidence to deal with the urges and strategies to implement. I would definitely recommend it.
This program helped me cope with my Trich, reason with myself, help me with my anxiety, and find ways to prevent the pulling. It was definitely beneficial to me as a person struggling with trich, but also helped me regain my self esteem and confidence in my hair.
I would definitely recommend this program to anyone who's struggling with this habit. Thank you
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!
