Break Free from Skin Picking

Our personalized online therapy program empowers you to retrain your brain and find freedom from skin picking.

Imagine a world where your behaviors don’t run the show.

You no longer think in limitations, and instead feel free to live life on your terms.

Suffering from skin picking is a constant struggle for control of your body and your life. Therapy is the key to recognizing your triggers and building the tools needed to change your response to them.

You’ve done the research. Now is the time for action.

We created our program to provide everyone with access to therapist-guided Cognitive Behavioral Therapy. The most effective treatment for this disorder to date, CBT helps patients develop important tools and strategies for dealing with compulsive behavior.

In just eight sessions, you will set goals and make changes that will allow you to stop picking and start living.

Learn more about how our guided CBT-based program works.

Evidence based therapy that works.

Our program uses Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) to help you identify skin picking triggers and retrain your brain. CBT is considered the most effective way to treat compulsive skin picking among specialists for the disorder. This therapy is effective because it empowers the patient to develop responsive skills and strategies.

Professional guidance every step of the way.

Your case is unique, and your treatment should be too. We connect you with a personal therapist who will lead you through the program and provide individualized support. Every therapist is certified by the TLC Foundation for BFRBs (body focused repetitive behaviors), and specializes in the treatment of skin picking with cognitive behavioral therapy.

Work and grow from the comfort of your own home.

Your privacy is important. This is a 100% online program, which means that you can participate from wherever you’d like. Nervous about opening up face-to-face with a therapist? Your communication with your therapist is text based via our secure messaging system.

A fraction of the cost of traditional therapy.

We developed this program to make therapy available to everyone. Full access to the program costs the same as roughly 2 hours of traditional therapy. Even better, studies show that online CBT-based therapy is just as effective as face-to-face therapy.

Meaningful therapy from any device.

The beauty of a 100% online program is that it is built to fit your lifestyle. With no need to schedule sessions or visit a therapist’s office, you can access the program when it’s most convenient. Enjoy compatibility with laptops, smartphones, and tablets.

Keep things confidential.

We understand the personal nature of this program. Special care is taken to secure your information. Anything you share with your therapist is under therapist-client privilege (a confidentiality agreement). You may even remain anonymous if you wish.

Client Testimonials

I would sum up this experience as life changing. I learned more than I ever thought I could about my condition and along with that information, I was given the tools to successfully overcome my picking problem. It was extremely beneficial. I would recommend this program to anyone and everyone suffering from this type of behavior. This program is worth every penny and I am so thankful I went through with it. I have taken what I have learned and applied it to not only my picking problem but to several other areas of my life. Because of this program, my life and my outlook on life has improved significantly. I am very grateful for SkinPick and my therapist!
If you'd told me I'd be where I am now back at the beginning I would not have believed you. I have not engaged in serious picking for weeks - perhaps 5-6 weeks- and my hands have healed so that I don't have to hide them and am starting to feel normal. I still notice strong urges when under stress and am aware I have not been tested more seriously, but I am applying the strategies daily and am overcoming the urge to pick - even leaving loose pickable skin alone. I could not have done this without the CBT program and am very grateful.
This program has equipped me with several tools that I can use not only to decrease the amount of skin picking that I do, but also to become aware of and address the triggers that lead up to the skin picking. I love that this program focuses on changing the way you process your thoughts and instructs you on how to reframe them as well as focusing on the actual physical behavior. I would highly recommend this program to anyone who struggles with skin picking or similar behaviors. I have tried so many other things and I am happy to have finally found a program that helps now and will continue to help me for a long time to come.

Latest Client Reviews

When asking our clients for feedback, we ask these two 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:

I am so thankful to have found SkinPick online. I was despondent over picking my skin for more than 20 years, and had given up hope for finding help. The program is thorough, thought-provoking, and multi-faceted. It was exactly what I needed to teach me skills, both to do and to think, in new ways. At first, I was skeptical of communicating only in written form with a counselor. However, my counselor responded quickly, and often, and I feel this actually worked out better, giving me a great transcript of our communications to refer to in the future. Armed with new tools, I have been able to control urges altogether and shorten any skin picking episodes that do occur. I never, never thought an online program could do so much in eight weeks, and know this was THE best treatment option I could have found, anywhere!

My experience with skinpick.com was life changing. That may sound dramatic, but after decades of skin picking I finally understood and accepted my problem as a REAL medical condition. Just that validation alone was a huge relief. Moreover, I realized real changes I could make mentally and physically to break the cycle with the guidance of my therapist. I still have work to do, but now feel like I am the one in control of my picking instead of the other way around. It doesn't own me! I would definitely recommend it to anyone with a skin picking disorder.

Past client, finished the program in June 2018

1. Yes, the program was beneficial for me. I liked the fact that it was divided in different "classes" that focus all on different aspects of the problem. I also felt that the worksheets made me think about myself and the reasons for my picking in a way that I wouldn't have done just by myself. I also learned new tricks on how to decrease external triggers for the picking. The main "internal" takeaway from the course is that trying to control the urge doesn't work. Mindfulness is definitely helping in understanding the problem, and I will continue working with mindfulness and maybe take other classes on that topic. Sometimes I felt that there was a bit too much text to read in the lessons. The "theory" part of it could be much nicer (and in a more modern way) presented in a short video - but my opinion is biased here, because I work in film. The app was great! 2. Yes, I would definitely recommend the program. It's very good value for the money, and the fact that you correspond with a real therapist adds "social pressure" which helps you to actually finish the courses and worksheets. If all those tips and exercises would just have been described in a book, I would probably not have done them as thoroughly as I have with this program.

1. my experience with the program was informative and eye-opening, i figured out multiple techniques i wouldn't have thought of on my own and understood the reasoning behind them. 2. i would definitely recommend this program to someone who's looking for help with skin picking, anything to help us be more aware and conscious of our actions is beneficial, and it gives the tools needed to improve and eventually stop picking.

A word from one of our clients

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.

Traditional therapy costs around $150 for a single session.

SkinPick offers unlimited access to your therapist over the course of the program for less than the price of two traditional visits.
