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.
Participating on the program Trichstop was really an eye-opener and helped me to admit, acknowledge and deal with the fact, that I have trichotillomania. Before the program, I denied my problem until I felt like I had to change something. Trichstop was the best thing, that I could have found during that rock bottom. Thank you so much, Michaela, for your support and understanding. You helped me to open up and share my story, to learn about my behaviors and patterns, to recognize triggers and ways to cope with my emotions and thoughts. What I have learned is to be more aware in the moment and ask myself questions like: how do I feel right now and what do I need? Instead of falling back into the same patterns right away. It is still a process, but I am so thankful for all the tools I have learned from Trichstop.
I would recommend Trichstop to everyone who is looking for help from the bottom of my heart. I think it is so important to open up and to accept and learn about your behaviors and thoughts and how to regulate your emotions in a functional way. You are not alone, and Trichstop can help you to rediscover your selflove and see things from a new perspective.
My experience has been overall beneficial, although it is kind of hard to tell when my trich comes and goes so much without seemingly good reason. Trichstop helped me be more aware of my urges and how to monitor and just interact with them, and gave me tools to be able to combat the urges and negative thought patterns. Yes, I would [recommend the program to others suffering from the same condition]
My experience with this program has been extremely beneficial to me. I honestly didn't know what to expect when I first signed up, and I didn't understand how the worksheets and sessions would help me with not pulling my hair. But working through the program and being able to communicate with someone about what I'm experiencing has helped me immensely. I've learned so much about myself and why I pull, and also have more heightened awareness of when I do pull and how can I help myself not do it. :) I'm so happy I decided to do it. I would definitely recommend this to anyone I know dealing with this behavior. I've even tried spreading the word out on private social media groups about trying this program. :) It really does help.
Thank you for your help over the course of this program. I thought it was helpful overall in order to understand my Trich much more and to see ways to manage my emotions, feelings and pulling habits. I would recommend it to other people suffering from a similar disorder.
My overall experience was very good. I have seen a big change on myself, regarding the way I am analyzing each situation, especially the moments I feel uncomfortable and I would like to pull my hair.It only happened once to me during these 2 months that I pulled a lot of hair and it was right after I finished the program.
I also saw a change in the way I understand what is happening around me, the moment it happens. I started observing things.It is really now when I am now going on holidays, that I am really enjoying each moment. I now enjoy my holidays more than before and coming back to the "reality" is not as difficult as before.
I would totally recommend this program, as it helped me a lot after years of trying on my own to fight my trichotylomania. To be honest, it is a bit sad that I will have no access in the program anymore.
