Skin Picking

Hi, my name is Paul Hunter. If you’ve been searching for a solution to skin picking disorder then you’ve come to the right page.

I am a Clinical Hypnotherapist, CBT Practitioner and Life Coach. For the past fifteen years, I have been helping the people of Cork (and from all over Munster) to overcome compulsive bad habits like skin picking.

First of all, what is skin picking? Essentially, it’s where you compulsively pick your skin. As a compulsion, it falls broadly into the category of OCD-based disorders, even though it is not OCD.

There are typically two types of people that suffer with this disorder:

  1. You pick your skin and you don’t even realise you’re doing it
  2. You do actually know you’re doing it but you just can’t seem to stop.

The most succesful treatment is known as habit reversal therapy which is best done using hypnosis. Essentially, you are programmed, at an unconscious level, to replace the action of skin picking with something healthier.

The key to success is getting the unconscious to “feel” a more satisfying feeling from the substitute behaviour.

What Causes Skin Picking?

Experts simply aren’t sure of the answer to what causes excessive skin picking because it varies from person to person. Here are some of the possible reasons:

  1. Stress or Tension – you are more likely to pick your skin if you feel stressed. 
  2. Anxiety – if you’re anxious, this can trigger the desire to skin pick
  3. Boredom – this is quite a popular reason
  4. Guilt or Other Negative Emotions

Using hypnosis and CBT, we can address those issues and give you new ways of dealing with them that no longer involve skin picking. Click on the button below to make an enquiry now!

I never realised it was getting so bad until one day, I rolled up a sleeve and a friend of mine was shocked at what she saw. In just a few short sessions with you, I stopped and I haven't done it in over a year now!
