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:

Overall I found the program to be beneficial because it helped me better understand why I pick which has helped me reduce my picking. I would recommend the program because it provides support and realistic approaches. I've tried many methods of reducing my picking and this program has been the most helpful.

I would recommend the Skin Pick program to anyone fed up with the behaviour and who is willing to commit to themselves to having an honest look under the hood, to unpack what is happening in their lives, what their behaviour is trying to tell them, and be willing to give themselves compassion and acceptance, and willing to take even small steps toward healing. My life has been changed through this program and I am no longer a skinpicker because of understanding the reasons why I was doing it and changing those things.

The program is very well founded - and the only one of its kind for skin picking. It provided me with valuable tools and, moreover, I now have a much better understanding of my behavior and of myself as a person. My therapist has helped me identify many underlying issues. All of this is a good basis for reducing the behavior of skin picking. When using the the program you should make some weekly time for it.

1. My experience with SkinPick was phenomenal. My skin picking before this program had plagued me for over 10+ years, and through their program I have gained valuable knowledge and skills to help work through my urges and understand why I pick my skin. It was seriously a breakthrough! I now know and understand why I have the urge to pick, but now I have the tools to help me work through these feelings and put my energy to doing more productive things. I now spend a A LOT less time picking my skin than I ever did before this program. I seriously think this program has/is going to change my life and the way I look at picking my skin! 2. YES! I would absolutely recommend this program to someone who is also struggling with skin picking. It is seriously worth the money, as your therapist really helps you pull back the curtains and understand why this behavior is happening, and provides you with great tools to help overcome this. My therapist was great and always wanted to help and provide ways to aid me through this process that has been a habit for me for almost half my life. This program will seriously change the way you look at picking your skin, and help you work through the thoughts and feelings of skin picking so you can change the behavior. Anyone who has problems with skin picking should try this program!

My experience with the program was extremely positive. I learned many practical techniques for helping reduce the behavior and addressed many underlying issues from past experiences that I had never considered before. I've done in-person talk therapy with a licensed councilor before, and in my opinion this program was more beneficial because the prompts were very specific to skin picking and my skin pick therapist was extremely responsive. I would (and have already!) recommend the program to anyone struggling with skin picking.

The program was beneficial to me as I learned to think about skin picking differently. Picking is something I have lived with for a very long time, and I suspect it will continue to be a part of my life. The program prompted me to reflect on and practice approaches to have a healthier mentality overall. While I had hoped this program would help me stop picking entirely, it has helped me have tools to reduce my reliance on picking as an emotional outlet. I would consider that a success. I would recommend this program to someone else who is looking for help with the behavior. And I would encourage them that regular participation is really important.

My experience was beneficial because it helped me explore my triggers for skin picking and helped me come up with alternatives to stop that behavior. As well as exploring the reason why I pick and limiting the situations where it leads to that behavior most. I would recommend this therapy to someone else, however it’s easily dragged out longer than it needs to be, so be proactive with the sessions and worksheets. The longer you wait, the more expensive is gets, so stick with it and the treatment will be shorter and more beneficial.

I would sum up my experience as follows: it wasn't just the picking that was addressed but other aspects of my life and mental health (managing stress, my core values, my relationships). I found it very helpful with understanding why I pick and learning what I need to do to resist the urges. I found it most helpful to be accepting of myself and realize what I need to add to life to help deal with stress, anxiety and unrealistic expectations. I still have urges and pick but it doesn't feel like an uncontrollable problem anymore. I would absolutely recommend it to someone else struggling with picking. The program surprised me with how in depth in issues we went - 'under the skin' so to speak.

I am so glad I decided to enroll in this program. Before signing up, I had been interested in therapy but was hesitant due to costs and uncertainty of which issues to address during therapy. Finding the Skinpick program was a complete blessing, it allowed me to face an issue that I may not have felt comfortable addressing in person in therapy. I appreciate that the program was affordable, personalized, addressed my specific issue and was self paced. The sessions were broken down in a way that really made sense and led me to a greater understanding of myself. My therapist was extremely kind and helpful throughout the process, asking questions and helping me appreciate the progress I made during the course of the program. I feel I have a much greater handle on my skinpicking behavior now and a greater understanding of myself as well because of this program and would highly recommend it to anyone struggle with body-focused repetitive behaviors.

I would sum up my experience by saying that the SP program provided me with an opportunity to develop a conscious awareness about my behaviour, as well as, a non-judgemental space to explore my thoughts and feelings. The program was not focussed on skin picking alone it got me to consider the deeper emotions and thoughts that may trigger me and empower me in how I respond to urges or difficult thoughts. Ultimately, I learned a lot about techniques to help with urges, letting go of this idea of control, practicing mindfulness and staying present, and bringing my values to the forefront of my mind to help guide me in my choices and behaviours in life. At times the information was overwhelming but i felt comfortable being vulnerable in the program and trusting my counsellor to guide me to my own understanding. I would recommend this program to others looking for help around skin picking.
