Trichotillomania – Compulsive Hair pulling

Trichotillomania (TTM), is the often unconscious urge to pull out hair from the body. The hair can be from any region of the body such as the head, eyebrows, eye lashes, ears, nose, under the arms and the pubic region. Many tricho sufferers have the condition since childhood. Some babies have also been seen to pull their hair.

trichotillomania londonIn childhood the ratio of male to female pullers is around 1 to 1. As children grow into teenagers and become adults the proportion of make pullers tends to drop whilst females tend to stay high.

Most people who have TTM will attempt to mask the condition by combing their hair over any bald patches or wearing headgear that mask the problem. If the condition gets worse, trichotillomania can lead to a withdrawal from social engagements and self esteem may drop.

The causes of trichotillomania are not known. There may be a genetic component because it has been seen in infants. Nurturing can play a part too. Sometimes a child will see an adult, may be even a parent pulling their hair and they may mimic them.

Hair pulling can provide some pleasure to some people. There is a sense of relief and release once hair has been pulled. The good feeling experienced from this action may lead to a compulsion to pull again to re-experience the nice feeling.

Male Anxiety AKA ‘Manxiety’

Manxiety refers to specific male perceptions about a man’s ability to cope with life challenges. Many men believe that they are not supposed to admit to struggling with challenges at work, at home, socially or with their health.

manxiety helpMen are much more likely than women to attempt to ignore a health issue and hope that it goes away. Manxiety is the anxiety caused by men enduring the worry of coping without seeking any help or support. Their anxiety is therefore likely to feel worse because they feel they have to cope alone.

 

In the age range 20 – 40 the rate of men attempting suicide is 3 to 4 times more than women

 

The cause of this perception may be genetic and as well as governed by the influence of older generations (eg. father, grandfather). It may have both a nature and nurture element to it.

Society has played a role in this too. Heroes tend to be the tough action-taking men. Think of John Wayne films and it soon becomes apparent that Hollywood and other media products can influence men from a an early age into believing how they should be as a man.

Manxiety can be resolved though. The first step is to admit to suffering from anxiety and then to seek help.

BWRT® – 21st Century Therapy

BrainWorking Recursive Therapy or BWRT®, is a ground breaking process that is gathering moment in the world of therapy. Developed by Terence Watts, it is based on our scientific knowledge of the way the brain works. Other therapies are based on current thinking of the way we believe the mind works and particularly the concept of the conscious and subconscious mind. However the mind is something we can pontificate about without currently having facts to support the way it functions.

ImageSuccessful relationships are in an important aspect of our lives. The most vital relationship is with our husband, wife or partner and yet any relationship can be put at risk because of a lack of thought and understanding about what enables a relationship to stand the test of time and be a deep and nurturing relationship.

No one learns how to conduct relationships and how to make them  successful relationships. Most people bring to any relationship their history, insecurities, fears, anxieties and past influences. No one begins a relationship a clean sheet. It is therefore vital to do those things that give your relationship the best chance to succeed and be a healthy one for everyone involved.

Bad relationships can become healthy relationships if both people are willing to take responsibility and change.

Steven Harold an experienced hypnotherapist in London describes successful relationship tips which if you use can help you and your loved one to have a healthy and thriving relationship.
