Went to the doctor today

When I explained to him that I picked my skin and have since I was 14 but now I've realised it's an obsession I want to stop. He firstly tried to treat me for achne until I explained that if I didn't pick my skin would be clear. Then he asked if I was depressed and I said I get down now and again, and he said that because i'm not depressed he advises just going to a university counsellor..not much help to be honest.
