Client Reviews

We constantly email our clients, asking to provide feedback about the program. We ask these 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:

the experience was very beneficial. I learnt lots of methods that help me in my day to day life and my condition improved dramatically during those 8 weeks. I'm not completely "over it" yet but I have the knowledge to deal with it during day to day life and I feel much better about myself. One of the most important things that helped me in the first weeks of the program is the assurance that I'm not supposed to improve immediately and that it is ok that I pick. Yes , i would recommend it to others who have this condition.

I have found this to be a very helpful programme. I never expected it to deal with issues such as my values and goals - I had initially thought there would only be a focus on dealing with surface behaviours. This has been a nice surprise as discussing these things and setting value-based goals has helped me in many other parts of my life, as well as the picking behaviour. In terms of the picking, I know I still have a long way to go and it will take work on my part. But I have a lot more hope that I can get there and that this programme has helped me to put a good foundation in place for true improvement (which I have never managed to achieve previously). And yes, I would recommend this programme to someone else looking for help with this behaviour. One of the reasons I have never felt confident about seeking help through therapy is having to face someone in person - the shame is too great. I really appreciate the ability to speak freely and anonymously through the online programme. I'm also grateful for your understanding words along the way which has made me feel a lot more comfortable. Thanks again for all of your support

First of all, I want to say THANK YOU!! You have been such a tremendous help and I am so grateful for that. You have truly changed my life bcause picking no longer rules my it. I would love to provide my feedback: 1. My experience with this program has been nothing short of amazing. Before the program, I felt alone and like I would never be able to stop picking my skin. Now, I don't have any problems whatsoever with skin picking. I will forever be grateful for this program! 2. I would absolutely recommend it to someone who needs it. It works!

I would like to say that my experience with the program has been very positive and successful. I am not totally cured by no means but it has made me aware of my triggers and definitely helped me to cut down on my self destructive skin picking behavior. It holds me accountable if this makes sense. I highly recommend the program to someone else looking for help. Having someone to talk to really does help with your treatment towards a cure.

I would absolutely recommend this program for someone who is dealing with similar behaviors such as skin-picking. The program helps you to break down what seems like an insurmountable issue that you have no control over into smaller, more manageable pieces. Investigating the whys of the behavior is the first step in stopping it. Thank you for helping me to gain some control back in my life. I can leave my house without makeup on!

This is a very good way to systematically take apart the components of skin picking. I would recommend this to anyone looking for new, fresh and effective ideas for addressing this difficult problem.

i'm more motivated now to really try and keep my skin clear so i can enjoy the summer and water with my family... i have found this program useful and i think i will be referring back to the sessions over the coming months to re-confirm what i have learnt.

I feel very accomplished, I just wish I had tried this years ago, but just so happy that I got finally got a handle on this!

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
