If this is true for you, we’re here to help. The Most Effective Method to Stop Picking Picking compulsions are psychological in nature. Just think about it – you’re doing it to yourself, no one forces you. Some inner force takes over your body, and it is often stronger than your will power. Compulsive picking is only a symptom of a deeper problem inside you. You cannot stop picking by treating the symptoms – you need to treat the cause. Every case is different, and every person has their own cause(s). Identifying these causes is the most crucial thing you need to do if you want to stop picking. Once you’ve done that, you’re half-way to recovery. This is where counseling and therapy come into hand. A professional counselor will analyze your case, and will help you identify the reasons WHY you pick your skin. In fact, counseling has proven to be the most effective way to treat the skin picking disorder. The Benefits Of Online Counseling Possibly the most important benefit of online counseling for skin pickers is the fact that people who have this disorder are VERY shy, secretive and embarrassed by it. This is why in most cases people don’t turn for help at all. Online communication removes the need to hide (you may even stay anonymous) – this way it is much easier for patients to open up and expose themselves freely. This is probably why online counseling has proven to be so effective. Other benefits of using online counseling: Finding a therapist who specializes in treating the compulsive skin picking disorder is hard. Even harder to find one in your area. Fortunately, the Internet allows us to communicate freely, and online counseling is a rapidly growing field today, allowing patients and treatment providers to connect. With online counseling you decide when to initiate communication with the therapist, and how fast you progress. You can engage in therapy from anywhere – be it your home, office, or any other place with internet connection. Online counseling is considerably cheaper than the traditional option of going to a therapist’s clinic/office.

It was easy for me to trust you and that is seriously something that is not easy for me at all.

I am on the sixth session out of 12 I bought for $100 with Dr Vinod. The first half is her really looking into your past and you childhood, traumatic events, current issues etc. I think its been worth it so far. Picking gets a little worse after dredging up all your issues but that si to be expected. Good luck to you.

thank you for the feedback : ) It makes sense tbat the picking gets a bit worse when dredging up the issues. When I go to an NA meeting and share about something bothering me or share about the picking it seems like i pick that night. I had 6 days without picking but last night I picked just a little so now I have today. Please keep me updated on how things are going with your therapy sessions. Good luck to you as well : )
