Cognitive Behavioural Therapy and/or medication may help you to better manage your trichotillomania. Depending on your circumstances, you may benefit from one of these types of treatment or a combination.
Cognitive Behavioural Therapy
Trichotillomania can successfully be treated using Cognitive Behavioural Therapy and in particular using techniques such as habit reversal training. Individual CBT involves identifying your thoughts and actions, and with the help of your therapist, considering alternatives.
