Online Therapy Program for Compulsive Skin Picking

So, you suffer from Dermatillomania (also known as “skin picking” or “excoriation disorder”), and you decided to do something about it, right?

Good. Because we understand your frustration and your struggle. We understand how limiting this disorder is. And we know that your true potential, currently inhibited by this condition, is in reality infinitely higher.

We help people manage their skin picking and ultimately overcome it, releasing their true self, and enabling them to live life to the fullest. This is our job. We can help You, too.

This is a one of its kind, therapist guided, online therapy program, based on CBT (Cognitive Behavioral Therapy - the most effective method of treatment for this disorder to-date).

A Short Video Explaining About The Program

It has sound - you might want to turn volume down, or use headphones, for privacy.


Evidence Based Therapy That Works

CBT (Cognitive Behavioral Therapy) is the most effective method to date, to treat compulsive skin picking. It is the method of choice that is primarily used by expert therapists worldwide, who specialize in treating this disorder.

Bottom line is that my life got better since I started the program. And I certainly recommend it to anyone who is looking for help to deal with dermatillomania.

Get the Professional Guidance You Need

Your case is unique – you have your own specific symptoms and needs – and it’s important to personalize treatment. That’s why you will get a personal therapist, who will lead you through the program, and give you support every step of the way.

All our therapists are qualified professionals, certified by the TLC foundation for BFRBs, specializing in treating skin picking and related disorders, and experienced in using CBT for treatment.

I would suggest SkinPick's program as a good learning environment to anyone who wants to understand and change their picking behaviors.

Maintain Your Privacy

The program takes place 100% online, which means you can participate from the privacy of your own home, without the need to visit a therapist’s office.

Communication with therapist is text based, via secure worksheets – which particularly fits people who don't like the idea of opening up to a therapist, face to face.

Overall it is a surprisingly good program for me, and I'm looking forward to completing the rest of the sessions. I would definitely recommend this to anyone who suffers from the same.

Affordable – a Fraction of the Cost of Traditional Face-to-Face Therapy

One of the main reasons we developed this program is to help those who cannot afford traditional face to face therapy. Indeed, 8 weeks access to the program with your own qualified therapist costs what you would pay for about 2 hours of traditional face-to-face therapy.

Moreover, studies show that online therapy based on CBT is not less effective than traditional face-to-face therapy.

Just a thought, as I know it's a struggle to find any sort of treatment for skin picking and this website and program is a Godsend. I wish it were available locally to all who suffer.

Access Anytime, from Anywhere, on Any Device

It’s a 100% online program, which means you can participate from anywhere, anytime. There’s no need to schedule sessions, or travel to therapists’ office, which will save you time. You can access the program from any device (PC/MAC, smartphones, iPad etc).

It has given me a base for recovery that I had been sorely lacking. It's an approachable program and its targeted so deeply at what lies beneath the picking behavior patterns.

You’re in Safe Hands

Your privacy is our top priority. This is why special care is taken to secure your information. You are of course guarded by therapist-client privilege (which is a confidentiality agreement, meaning that nothing you share will be disclosed by the therapist to any third party).

Not only have I recommended this program in general to others, I gave this site and program specifically to my face to face therapists so they could visit and hopefully find it a place to recommend to other patients in the future.

Client Reviews

We constantly email our clients, asking to provide feedback about the program. We ask these questions:

  1. How do you sum up your experience with the program?
  2. Would you recommend it to others who suffer from excoriation disorder?

Here are the replies we get:

This program has really helped to reduce my picking and hair pulling behaviour. I am touching my face less often and can leave my hair alone for much longer. I wouldn't say it is completely gone, but it is much better. I could figure out what to do instead of playing with my hair, and if so, I am able to stop it and focusing on the more important things. I learned how to support myself in this. I would definitely recommend this program.

I have recommended this program to three estheticians. I hope that they will share it with people who compulsively pick. I think that many people suffer from this behavior privately and feel a great deal of shame about it. I want to tell them there is help available which is both accessible and affordable. Sharing this information with others has been helpful to me, reducing shame and cultivating willingness to openly acknowledge and address the behavior. I started this program because I was hurting. This program and the therapist brought healing, understanding, and compassion for my own suffering and that of others. There is a way to end the suffering caused by skin picking. I hope others will discover it and give themselves the gift of healing, self-forgiveness, and constructive action that can be found through this program. I cannot recommend it highly enough.

My experience with the program has been very rewarding and beneficial. In particular, I appreciated the compassionate responses and helpful feedback from the therapist. Her feedback was timely and constructive, and her responses often helped me to see the harming behavior in a different light, which helped to interrupt habitual patterns of thinking and acting. The awareness of the habit was itself beneficial, as was the practical and useful advice for competing responses and stimulus control. This program is very specific and targeted to skin picking, and it did help in an observable way with that behavior. It also helped to see the link between my behavior and habits of mind, such as the desire for control or avoidance of uncomfortable feelings. This awareness provided benefits beyond simple habit change: Now I interpret the picking behavior as a signal of anxiety, avoidance, and the need for self-care. Reflecting on those triggers brings compassion and the possibility of a new response. I don't always choose the right response, and sometimes I still indulge in the behavior, but now I understand better that the behavior is a misguided attempt to meet a real need, and I know there is an alternative. One of the benefits of the online format is that it is available 24/7, so help is available when the urge to pick arises.

1) My experience was very beneficial. I am overjoyed to have found this website. It's been a challenge to find solutions and help for this disorder. I have felt very ashamed of the physical results of skin picking, feeling unattractive. Most people don't understand and think you can just stop. So finding a group of professionals that have expertise in this arena has been amazing for me. Getting to speak freely and anonymously has been liberating. The program from beginning to end is well designed and progresses quite naturally. I'm still a work in progress and but I have seen improvement and I have hope for the future. Lots of reflection and getting to the root of urges, lots of techniques to try. My therapist has been very helpful and patient with me. I enjoyed the way you communicate with your therapist. 2) I would strongly recommend this program for anyone dealing with this behavior!
