Trichotillomania (Compulsive Hair Pulling) Hypnosis Script
Trichotillomania (TTM) is an impulse disorder which urges people to pull their hair out. Hair from the scalp, eyelashes, eyebrows, or other parts of the body are all fair game. The noticeable bald patches inspire an additional layer of emotion; fear of being caught, shame of being unable to stop. Some describe the compulsive hair-pulling as a self-soothing behaviour comparable to thumb-sucking.
Although there are still questions it is for the moment defined as an impulse-control disorder. An estimated two percent of Americans wrestle with this urge to pluck hair. The urge is not just a simple habit or learned behaviour but is experienced as an urge more like a yawn or sneeze that emerges from the subconscious.
This disorder most frequently emerges in the early adolescent years, near age twelve. Researchers suggest that of those with trichotillomania ninety percent are women. But this may only indicate that women are more likely to seek treatment. Some experts note that 50 to 70 percent of people who pull out their hair bite or chew the root of, or examine the hair.
Symptoms range widely. Each individual is unique in severity, location on the body, and response to treatment. The unifying factor is all people with TTM will go to great lengths to cover up their handy work. That includes changing hairstyles, using scarves, or camouflage clothing, or makeup to hide bald patches or skin irritation. The tenacity of this disorder is also subjective. Some people, at some times can eliminate their urge to pull by focusing their awareness on it. For other people, or at other times the urge to pull may be so urgent that normal functioning becomes nearly impossible.
A 2004 article in the "Journal of Counseling and Development" states that "hypnotherapy has been effective in treating habit disorders, such as tics and thumb sucking, as well as trichotillomania. During hypnosis clients can significantly increase awareness of their urge to pull hair. Two small studies reported moderate success in treating trichotillomania with hypnotherapy.
