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:

My experience with the program has been very helpful. I was very dubious when I saw an online program for dermatillomania, but had reached a point of desperation where I was willing to give it a try. I have been very surprised at how helpful it has been, and my picking has reduced to almost zero. I have tried many things over my 30 years of struggling with this disorder, and currently have smooth, healed skin on my hands and a whole range of new coping strategies and understanding of myself. I would recommend this program to others who are genuinely looking for support with their problem. Picking is embarrassing and lonely, but this is a safe space to heal.

SkinPick was one of the best decisions of my life. It turned a behavior that contributed to my depression into a non-existent behavior that left me free. I feel so much better! I would recommend SkinPick to anyone who is willing to put in the time to find answers to their skin picking. If it could help me, it can help others. I’m so thankful I found this program!

Michaela Chatzimanoli , my therapist that worked with me to overcome my skinpicking urges, by using the program Skinpick has developed, has truly made a difference in my life for the better. I would definitely recommend this program to others suffering from something like I did.

I would sum up my experience with the program as excellent and it was clearly beneficial. My skin has cleared up tremendously, and I don’t feel the stress of skin picking being a huge problem in my life going forward. I would recommend the program to others who feel they have a problem with skin picking. I learned the hard way and wasted a lot of years thinking that if my willpower was better, I would be able to improve by myself. You need tools and support, and this is a reasonably affordable way of improving your skin massively. The lessons and exercises are time efficient, and the feedback and instruction is prompt and useful.

I would say this experience was very beneficial. Before this program, I was trapped in a constant cycle of picking my skin every day and no matter what I tried to do I couldn't break out of it. Going 2 days without picking was once a huge accomplishment for me. My skin picking controlled every aspect of my life and lived in constant anxiety. Through this program, I was able to fully understand my skin picking and what I need to do in order to control it. I am to see the bigger picture and not get caught up in intrusive thoughts. I would definitely recommend this program to anyone who needs help with this behavior!

It took me a while to complete the program but it was quite demanding in the best sense of the word. There was a lot to learn there. Many techniques to try. A ton of useful advice. It has helped more than my previous therapy. I had someone to hold me accountable and to hold my hand through the whole process. That was also the best thing about it. If you pick your skin, this program is for you. It will be quite the ride but it will be worth the effort and the time. My biggest obstacle was that I wanted to do it too fast but not really go beneath the surface. Going through SkinPick I learned to be patient and kinder to myself.

The absolute highlight of the program is communication with the therapist. It's a different kind of work and it takes some getting used to because all the communication is in writing. But it's very efficient and flexible and I'm very happy to have had the opportunity to go through it.

i'm so very grateful for the program. it has taught me so much and not only in practical terms but also where my issues come from. it was hard and i felt so vulnerable at times but it was also profoundly beneficial. having that safe space to talk about most intimate things and never be shamed for them... it was really good. it helped with my picking significantly and vladimir and i outlined where i can go on further in terms of my personal development. i have my work cut out for me. i highly recommend it to anyone who is struggling with picking.

This program was quite helpful for me and I learned some interesting insights about myself and the triggers to my skin picking. My therapist was very skilled at drawing these things out and it surprised me how effective this was done remotely via the session materials, online exercises, my responses and follow-up questions and answers. The program provided me with several techniques (some for immediate help and others for the long term) that has and will continue to help me. The mindfulness concepts that the program includes in depth are terrific. The program is well paced and I recommend taking the full time prescribed to allow for the very valuable one-on-one back and forth with the therapist.

I found the program to be a good source of information about the behaviour and the underlying thinking that leads to the behaviour. The best part of the program for me was the ongoing regular feedback and suggestions of the therapist - reassuring and gently nudging me to think and behave in a new manner. Thanks for the helpful tips!
