Treatment for Skin Picking
People who suffer from compulsive skin picking find it hard, if not utterly impossible, to stop on their own, using just will power. This is due to the inherent nature of this disorder.
It is highly advised to turn for professional help. In any case you should not keep this to yourself, and sharing with others may by itself be a relieving process.
Fortunately, this disorder has been getting some attention from the therapists community in recent years, and more treatment providers are aware of this disorder, gaining experience at treating skin picking patients.
Finding Therapists Who Treat Skin Picking
We began compiling a list of therapists worldwide who treat this disorder. If you suffer from skin picking and seeking professional help, try finding a therapist near you on this list (currently US only). If you're a treatment provider who treats skin picking patients, get listed for free.
If you decided to seek professional help, but haven't found a therapist near you, or you just cannot afford face-to-face consultations due to highly priced sessions, you may want to consider our online counseling service.
