Yes, this is a long term solution to cure trichotillomania. The reason is we work on 2 levels.
Level 1 is helping you to take back control over your unconscious behavior. Level 2 is teaching how you to take better care of yourself in such a way where the need for pulling out hair is no longer there.
Sometimes people ask if the behavior can ever come back in 15 or 20 years’ time or so, once they overcome it.
The answer is, theoretically this might happen and has happened in a few instances for people we assisted. However, the way we have set up our support is to allow you to quickly gain back control, should this ever happen.
But our experience is that most often, once you have learned to overcome this, it will be for good. Think of learning how to overcome trichotillomania like learning to walk.
Once you know how to do it, the skill is yours forever.
