Hypnosis offers a way to stop skin picking
Skin picking can seem entirely not under your control. You know you should stop but then you catch yourself picking…again. The urge to pick your skin is almost addictive and yet the results make life miserable.
Skin picking involves repetitive picking of the:
Some pickers focus on lesions or sores while others scratch or squeeze otherwise healthy skin. You can harm your skin using your fingernails, teeth or even pins and tweezers.
Skin Picking Can Be Related to Tension, Stress and Anxiety
Many skin pickers report a feeling of tension or anxiety before the picking begins. This build up of stress can be overwhelming. Starting to pick usually creates a sense of relief or even pleasure as the tension rapidly decreases.
Skin Picking Can Cause Embarrassment or Ashamed Feelings
Skin picking often causes great distress, pain and other difficulties. Open sores, infection and scarring are some of the effects, not to mention feeling embarrassed or even ashamed of the results of your skin picking.
Hypnosis Helps The Change Become A Reality
Consciously you don’t want to pick your skin, but it can be very difficult to stop as it develops into a habit that is maintained by your subconscious mind. Hypnosis works directly with the subconscious mind to reverse the suggestion in your head that says it “helps” you or “increases your happiness” to do this.
