James has helped me completely eliminate my hair pulling. He was warm and approachable, so I did not feel any shame or judgement and could be fully open about my issue. We had a 1.5h session and I have had a complete elimination of this issue which I never thought was possible. I cannot recommend James highly enough.

The impact that James has had on me is so incredible, I want other people to know that there is hope! I suffered from trichotillomania for the past 18 years and never told a single person. I can’t quite explain what actually happened during my session, but it was around me gaining control of my life. It took an hour to help with something that has overwhelmed me for more than half of my life!

It’s been several months now since the sessions and I have seen considerable improvements in my anxiety management. With the tactics James provided, he’s given me a suit of “confidence” armor that I always go back to when the anxiety monster starts to creep up. Thank you James!

Professional Clinical Hypnotherapy in London, Online and in Hampshire

Hair pulling or trichotillomania affects a surprising number of people – though it is an issue that is not commonly talked about.

If you suffer from it, you’ll know how hard it is to stop – you’ll also probably know that it is a kind of impulse control disorder that is often associated with stress and anxiety.

Here’s the good news: hypnotherapy for trichotillomania can be incredibly effective.

Your friends may imagine that people like you who pull their hair do it in large clumps – when this isn’t always the case. As with any type of physical reaction to things that bother us or cause us stress – including thumb sucking and nail biting – you’ll know that there are different levels of trichotillomania.

A related condition is called dermatillomania – which you have if you can’t stop picking at your skin.

As a highly-trained Clinical Hypnotherapist with many years of experience helping people with these conditions, I can tell you that just a few sessions may be all that’s needed to see significant, positive change.

Yes – hypnotherapy really is that quick.

I look forward to helping you be calmer and more relaxed.

Addressing the compulsion to pull hair

The cause of hair pulling is usually psychological, so it is often something that can be effectively treated by a skilled hypnotherapist. The psychological factor leads to the compulsion – which often has emotional triggers and associative cues attached, such as watching TV. I address all of these elements during treatment.

When people like you have a problem with pulling their hair compulsively, the net result can be feelings associated with lower self-esteem, such as frustration, embarrassment and of loss of control.

You may pull out your hair to relieve anxiety, but the short lived relief that ensues quickly fades and the problem intensifies – sometimes, sadly, in a very visible way.

Using hypnotherapy to stop hair pulling

Hypnosis helps in many cases. If you want to stop pulling, or if self-induced hair loss is becoming an issue you can no longer ignore, booking an online hypnotherapy session or one that takes place in person couldn’t be easier.

At the moment, I am also offering 10% off all treatment solutions to help people through the current cost of living crisis.

I look forward to helping you soon.

All about trichotillomania

Often shortened to just “trich”, trichotillomania or hair pulling is an overwhelming feeling that someone has to pull out hair. While this usually involves the hair on their head, it can sometimes focus on the eyebrows, eyelashes and body hair, too.

Sometimes, it is seen as a kind of addiction. The more hair you pull out, the more you want to keep doing it. People affected, however, don’t enjoy the effects of their activities – such as bald patches and a poor sense of body image.

Searching for solutions to hair pulling

Some people try therapies in which they are encouraged to choose an alternative over hair pulling in times of stress or anxiety. However, nothing, in my experience, is as fast or effective as hypnotherapy.

It can help to address the underlying cause of the issue and often uncover why you started pulling in the first place.

It can help a very awkward, often highly stressful habit to become a thing of the past. It can help you to feel in more control of your life.

How hypnotherapy for hair pulling can help

You pull hair unconsciously – it happens automatically. Hypnotherapy helps you to deal with the emotional triggers behind this.

Your triggers are likely to be stress-related. Perhaps you engage in hair pulling when anxious about something specific, or in the presence of a certain person. During hypnotherapy, we are able to develop alternative reactions to these things and break the cycle that has governed your life so far.

Hypnosis gives you alternative self-soothing strategies and the tools you need to face the future with new hope, giving the scalp time to recover and a new life to begin.

I give my experience of hypnotherapy with James 10/10

Dame Kelly Holmes

What happens during a hypnotherapy session?

The first thing we’ll do is have a complimentary exploratory phone call, lasting up to 20 minutes. During this, you’ll have chance to talk to me about what’s going on, for me to answer your questions and make sure we’re a good fit.

Before your actual session, you’ll fill in a detailed questionnaire that will help me understand your symptoms, habits, history and patterns of hair pulling, for example. This allows me to tailor your treatment plan and ensures that the time you spend in the session itself is used as effectively as possible.

Over the course of your 90-minute session, you will feel calm and in control, and I’ll use a combination of the most effective modern and classic hypnotherapeutic tools and techniques (including Havening and NLP techniques).

How to book your hypnotherapy session

Hopefully, you now feel reassured about the hypnotherapy process – and feel ready to take the next step. In most cases, you’ll need only a single session or a couple of sessions to be better.

Each session will be 90-minutes long. This means we achieve so much more than you can in the traditional 50-minute ‘therapy hour’ that most therapists provide. For many clients, online hypnotherapy sessions are the quickest and easiest way to address a specific problem and to get the treatment they need.

A special offer from my hypnotherapy practice to you

As part of my ‘Covid recovery’ promotion, I’m reducing my fees by 10% to only £290 + VAT per session.  I have very limited availability and if you’d like to know more about how I may be able to help you, then do get in touch now.

I will put 100% effort into working with you and the techniques that I use are very powerful for most people. As with all high quality therapy types, success varies for each patient and there can be no guarantees. In fact, I’d recommend running a mile from a hypnotherapist who says they offer a guarantee.

Why choose me as your hypnotherapist

I became a hypnotherapist because of a life-changing hypnotherapy session of my own in 2006. This helped me to re-find myself and discover new hope. So, whatever you’re feeling now, I’ve been in a similar place.
Experience
I have helped numerous people with trichotillomania and have completed more than 5,000 sessions of hypnotherapy.
Chemistry
I only work with clients that I believe I can help, want to help and have a good chemistry with.
Speed
Most clients need just two sessions to see a significant improvement. This is quicker than virtually any other therapist.
Reassurance
I am one of the UK’s most reviewed therapists. More than 90% of clients give me a 5-star review.
Trust
Before I saw my very first client more than a decade ago, I had completed more than 1,000 hours of training. Unfortunately, any person can call themselves a therapist without any training. Do not put your mental health in the hands of amateurs.

I’d like to start off with the fact that I’ve never written a review in my life, but the impact that James has had on me is so incredible, I want tother people to know that there is hope!! I suffered from trichotillomania for the past 18 years, very, very quietly and never telling a single person. Over the past couple of years, it got progressively worse in the sense that I genuinely had no control over my hands which was soul destroying. During lockdown, things came to head and I was losing my hair very quickly. The impact that ttm had on my physical appearance was becoming more prevalent, and I decided to google for help – which is when I found James. The phone consultation was great, James immediately understood my condition which was hugely comforting. I wasn’t sure what to expect for my appointment – I didn’t want to research hypnotherapy as I wanted to go in with an open mind, but obviously had various movie scenes in my head. The appointment itself was calming, but also fascinating. We initially spoke about the pre questionnaire I had done prior to the appointment, and then went into the crux of it all. I can’t quite explain what actually happened, but it was around me gaining control of my life and ultimately my hands, and changing how I feel about certain memories, which cause any untoward emotions that in turn make the ttm worst.  The appointment lasted an hour and that’s genuinely all I needed. An hour to help with something that has overwhelmed me for more than half of my life!! Since the appointment a month ago, I can keep my hands still and most of all, I don’t want to pull my hair. The only way I can explain it is if I attempt to play with my hair like I used to, my hand feels like the opposite side of a battery to my head and there’s so much energy in between pushing my hand away. It’s honestly crazy! I’m not sure what I expected after seeing James, but it certainly wasn’t this miracle! His calming nature, his clear skills, and his empathy are fabulous, I couldn’t recommend him enough :) I did some research about hypnotherapy before my sessions with James because I wanted to make sure I understood the process and somehow knew what to expect. But what I experienced and still am it is amazing and way beyond my expectations. The limited number of sessions, the results, James sensibility to navigate through my difficulties and how brilliant the techniques worked – and are still working after almost two months of our last session; I can only describe as a life changing experience. After years seeking results with different approaches, I’ve found what I’ve been looking for a very long time. Due the Covid-19 we had our sessions online, via ZOOM and it was as effective as if they were in person. Thanks James for changing my life for the best.

Frequently Asked Questions

Answers to all your most common questions about how hypnotherapy can help to treat trichotillomania.

If you have tried a psychologist, counselling, or any other kind of therapy, hypnotherapy for hair pulling offers an alternative.

It works by 'rewiring' the mind so that it changes the way it reacts to whatever is bothering you and provides a safe haven from anxiety, stress and trauma.

In many cases, it can eradicate the response you want to get rid of completely. In other cases, even being able to 'dial down' the response can make a significant difference to how well you are able to cope with life.

It all depends on your background and what we have used in previous sessions, if applicable. As well as clinical hypnotherapy, the four main tools at my disposal are Havening, Time Line Therapy, NLP and TFT.

I have enjoyed considerable success with all of these, both individually and in various combinations.

Given the current cost of living crisis, I am offering 10% off my standard fee. A potentially life-changing 1-1 session with me today costs just £290 +VAT per 90-minute session (most hypnotherapists' sessions are only 50 minutes long).

There is no extra fee for my pre-prep work, such as my analysis of your pre-session briefing questionnaire.

Additionally, every new client benefits from a free 20-minute consultation by phone.

Booking is easy – please just fill in the contact form, or call me on freephone 0800 122 3073.
