Do you have a BFRB?
What are they & how do they affect people?
If you have been struggling to stop biting your nails, compulsively pulling your hair or picking your skin you may have a body-focused repetitive behaviour (BFRB). The most commonly recognized ones are:
- Trichotillomania (hair pulling disorder)
- Excoriation Disorder or Dermatillomania (skin picking disorder)
- Onychophagia (nail-biting)
- Rhinotillomania (compulsive nose-picking)
- Cheek biting or chewing
- Lip biting or picking
- Tooth grinding or clenching (bruxism) sometimes if not sleep
If you are looking for proper information and support on stopping, you have come to the right place. I passionately want to help people to overcome their BFRBs.
How I can advise & help
Supporting you as you let go of your BFRB
I can help you to stop so that you can feel calm, confident and free. With the right help, a BFRB can become a thing of the past. There are many ex-sufferers living happy and healthy lives.
You are unique, but I know something of your struggle, how frustrating these behaviours are and how hard they are to control.
I had an enduring nail biting habit until I was finally able to stop. Putting bitter-tasting chemicals on my fingers had not rid me of my BFRB. However, an evidence-based behavioural programme did. (Much of the advice I see online is out-of-date or ineffective.)
In order to help other sufferers I undertook a specialist training. I blend this approach with my experience of helping clients with the many life-changing tools acquired in26 years as a therapist.
