The Free yourself from Skin-Picking Programme

Is this you?


You pick and scratch your skin, you want to get rid of any blemishes or marks and can spend hours scouring your skin for the slightest imperfection.


And you want to STOP. 


You feel embarrassed and ashamed.

The pleasure and short-lived relief you may experience when you pick is replaced by overwhelming disappointment and guilt as you look at the damage you've done to yourself. Your skin is red and sore with scabs and permanent scars.


You feel even more anxious as you attempt to cover up the damage, which makes you start on a picking cycle again.

Sound familiar?

Skin picking is not an inevitable, lifelong burden.

If you're motivated and determined, you can completely stop or successfully manage Skin picking.


The Determined Programme is your solution.

The Determined Programme
 in a nutshell

1)  Individual online coaching therapy sessions 


2)  De-Stress Bootcamp


3)  Private clients only Facebook page 


Part 1

7 individual online coaching therapy sessions 

The programme covers 3 essential building blocks 

1)Find Inner Calm

You pick when stressed, anxious, worried, overthinking, frustrated, or bored.

Learning self-care techniques to experience true calm and wellness is key to recovery. You gain confidence in your own ability to de-stress and self-regulate your emotions and thoughts.

Self-hypnosis, mindfulness, relaxation, and breathing techniques are combined to offer you an effective toolkit.

The strategies you put in place are the important groundwork for the next building block 

2)Stop Picking


You learn to stop the mechanical, automatic skin picking habit. As you ride the urge and no longer pick, you become stronger and more confident. The urges lessen, become less frequent, and fade away as your strategies work.

You understand what is happening and STOP picking

You make the necessary changes in your environment to remain in control

You're now ready to make significant changes to your thoughts in the final block of the programme

3)Build Confidence and Self-Belief

Skin picking is often accompanied by self-doubt, low self-confidence, and anxiety. Your answer when you have had these feelings and thoughts until now has been to pick. Which has made your problem worse.


In this part of the programme we focus on effective tools to recognise, challenge, and swap out self-sabotaging thoughts to gain positive resilience.

This is essential to anchor the techniques and strategies firmly in your mind. You build up your self-belief and confidence as you STOP PICKING!

I created the Determined Programme to help men and women with excoriation disorder recover from this compulsive habit.


I use a strong blend of evidence-based techniques.

Hypnotherapy, self-hypnosis, cognitive behavioural therapy, mindfulness, relaxation, habit reversal therapy can all be effective on their own to stop skin picking.

When we combine them, they give you powerful mind and body techniques to stop and remain free from any urge to skin pick.

The audios and documents we use during the sessions are yours for good. You can use them whenever you want.

How long does the programme last?

The programme lasts approximately four months. As the programme progresses, the space between sessions increases so that you become more and more confident in your own ability to manage any skin-picking urges.

How soon will I start seeing the effects?

After the first session, you already have skills to feel calmer and more in control of your mood and body tension. This often has a positive influence on your urge to pick as you start to regain confidence and self-belief

Do I have to practice between the sessions?

Yes, this is an important part of the programme. You need to put aside time every day to practice what we have covered during the sessions. Skin-Picking took time to install itself in your life, it will need your time and effort to get rid of it

What is hypnosis?

Hypnosis is, safe and completely natural! It’s a mindset of deep concentration that lets you focus on suggestions, ideas, and images. Everyone can learn this lifelong skill that connects you to the power of your mind. The hypnotic mindset is similar to the one you have when you’re absorbed in a film or a book. 

You can either be led into hypnosis during a hypnotherapy session with your hypnotherapist and/or learn self-hypnosis.

Does hypnosis work online?

Hypnotherapy can be practised either in person or online - its effectiveness is the same. Online is the ideal solution when you want to fit sessions around your schedule and not spend time travelling to and from sessions. Using easily available video conference tools we can see each other clearly and establish a warm environment together. My clients have all appreciated this solution. I work with clients who suffer with hair-pulling from all over the world, this is an obvious solution.

What is cognitive behavioural hypnotherapy?

CB Hypnotherapy is a short therapy that focuses on how to get better and feel better today. CB hypnotherapy is based on the way thoughts, feelings, physical sensations, and actions are interconnected.


Negative thoughts and feelings can lead to you feeling trapped in a vicious cycle. With CB hypnotherapy, you discover the strength, resilience, and adaptability of your mind. You discover that the problems you thought were with you for good can be resolved! When you understand and manage the relationship between your thoughts, feelings, and actions, you can manage trich.
