Trichotillomania is an urge to pluck your hair or eyebrows (116).
Trichotillomania, which is classified as an impulse control disorder, is the compulsive urge to pull out one's own hair leading to noticeable hair loss, distress, and social or functional impairment, and in some cases one may even consume the hair. It is often chronic and difficult to treat.
Anxiety, depression and obsessive-compulsive disorder are more frequently encountered in people with trichotillomania.
Trichotillomania has a high overlap with post traumatic stress disorder. Some cases of trichotillomania may be triggered by stress.
Habit Reversal Training (HRT) has the highest rate of success in treating trichotillomania.
Biofeedback, cognitive-behavioral methods, and hypnosis may improve symptoms.
Counselling and Psychotherapy may be provided via Skype and FaceTime in the comfort of your home, office or any place of your choice.
