BFRB Info

Group Therapy for Body Focused Repetitive Behaviours (BFRBs)

We are currently planning a CBT group focused on treating BFRBs (e.g. trichotillomania, skin-picking). Using techniques from habit reversal training and acceptance and commitment therapy, this treatment group aims to help you better manage your hair pulling and skin picking behaviours. It also provides an opportunity for you to feel less alone.

BFRB Therapy

The group consists of 6-8 adult participants (the same individuals each week). Sessions are 2 hours long, and held weekly for a total of 9 weeks. Booster sessions at 1 month and 3 months will be offered if participants are interested.

The total cost for group is $900, and includes the following:

  • 18 hours of psychological therapy
  • A book and other printed materials
  • A parking pass for each session

What happens next?

If you are looking for help with hair pulling, skin picking, or any other kind of BFRB, contact Archways Centre for CBT to set up an initial appointment with one of our psychologists. At the end of this appointment it will be decided if individual or group treatment would be best for your needs.
