97% of clients who finish the program say they would (and do) recommend it to others
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.
Thank you for working with me... I never thought I would be aware, hopeful, and free. My experience with Trichstop has been very beneficial. It provided multiple layers to process and become more aware. I am especially grateful for the practical follow-through tools. I will carry these sessions with me to help someone else who needs it along the way. I highly recommend this therapy program!
I would definitely recommend this program to someone else with a hair pulling habit. It has really helped me and I would want them to be able to get help and get their habit under control. Though it was embarrassing and uncomfortable to examine my habit so closely, it is important and has helped me. Looking at it so closely and understanding my triggers and behaviors that accompany it has helped me to find strategies and methods to combat it. This program worked way better than the previous methods and systems that I had tried, and I think that others with a hair pulling habit would find it to be very helpful.
This trajectory was very helpful for me. Even though my pulling behaviour was not completely eliminated, it was definitely reduced. Most importantly, this program helped me on my journey of getting to know myself better. I was able to make sense of past experiences and feelings that have contributed to my pulling habit. I was also able to focus on the present as well as my future goals. I especially liked the focus on mindfulness and accepting your negative thoughts. This program also made me feel less alone when it comes to my pulling behaviour. It's comforting to know that I'm not the only with this struggle, and that there is hope for change.
I feel a little sad that it's over but very glad that I found this program. It certainly exceeded my expectations in completely unexpected ways. Overall, I found it to be very valuable, relatable and meaningful. Although some of the techniques felt a little forced initially, the underlying messages and directions resonated with me and I feel like I genuinely can adopt them going forward. It felt amazing to be understood - the sessions put words to what I had been feeling and wanting for a long time but not pursuing in a structured way. Although pulling is definitely still a struggle, the holistic view presented shifted my focus in a way that I've needed for a long time and I am really excited to figure out and pursue what's truly meaningful to me
I have had a very positive experience with this program. The sessions were very informational and exact on target of what I go through on a daily basis. Some techniques did not work for me but I found some that did. This program taught me to be focused in the moment and accept my feelings. When I do this I am able to change my mind set and avoid my urge. I still pull and give into urges but I have made huge progress and know what to do when I have an urge.
From this program my husband better understands what I am going through and has become EXTREMELY supportive. We discuss my progress/feelings each night. This is something we had never done before this program. I am very hopefully that I continue to get stronger each day and I pray each night that I can overcome this need of pulling and live a more fulfilling life.
The responses to comments on the worksheets were always quick, helpful and much appreciated. I enjoyed that some of the sessions gave you things to work on for the week, for example practicing your competing response and implementing stimulus control.
As each session went along , and different aspects of my behavior (and behaviors in general) were explored , some really important insights sneaked up on me - and have definitely improved how I see myself and how to be better to myself. Even though the program is designed for a broad audience , the questions and responses are personal enough to really get to the heart of the matter . Everything is discussed in a frank , practical and non-judgemental manner , and that is much appreciated .
I would recommend it to anyone who is looking for help with this behaviour. I did not have any other options where I come from and I would have had to explain too much to the therapist. Here, my therapist knows the problem already and there is a clear program in place.
I am happy I took this course even though difficult at times. Yes I would suggest this program to others it is a subject matter hard to discuss face to face. I really felt comfortable talking like this.
