However, what ever it is classified as, about 2% of the population know it causes them a great deal of distress, discomfort and embarrassment. The condition is as individual as the people who suffer from it. For many the symptoms will be evident as hair pulling. Literally pulling their hair out from any area of their body and even from their close relatives and partners. Others will focus on pulling hair from maybe just one area of the body such eyebrow pulling, eyelash pulling and so on.


What happens after hair has been pulled from the body can also vary from sufferer to sufferer.

The hair pulling behaviour usually starts in young children with the male and female split being about 50 – 50. By with the onset of puberty 90% of recorded cases are female. Although recorded cases do not necessarily reflect the true picture. It is quite accepted in modern society that men can from an early age start to have a receding hairline and bald patches. Very little is publicly said, whilst females with bald patches, missing eyebrows etc are subject to at the very least to comment.

Diagnosis is on occasion difficult even for trichologics as often admitting this behaviour would add shame to the discomfort and may result in the loss of sympathy. As a London and Midlands based hypnotherapist who specialises in using hypnotherapy and EFT with people who have trichotillomania, I recently treated a client who’s partner believed she had alopecia and when she got up the courage to admit she was pulling out her own hair the relationship collapsed. This was exceptional it should be noted as most partners have an inkling that something is not quite right and when told that it is a condition, are usually very supportive.

After working with clients directly in one to one sessions, I also provide hypnosis and subliminal cds to be used each evening in addition and to continue the progressive made in the hypnotherapy sessions.

Whether working with a client face to face or by email, it is possible with custom 3d eyelashes box and trust to work out times and situations which exacerbate the issue and make a change. Just like learning to walk it takes time, practise and encouragement from people around you.
