Break Free From Skin Picking

A step-by-step system for gaining freedom from the vicious cycle, healing your body and mind, and getting your life back.

   Watch Intro Video

This course is for you if you...

  • Pick at your skin uncontrollably and have no idea why.
  • Find it impossible to resist the urge to pick, scratch or squeeze it.
  • Do the behavior without even realizing you started doing it.
  • Have tried and tried to stop, but without success.
  • Waste tons of time picking, thinking about picking, or covering up the damage you've done to your skin.
  • Feel out of control and powerless, and worry that you will never be able to stop.
  • Are embarrassed at how your skin looks and go to great lengths to cover up or hide it.
  • Feel ashamed of your behavior and the fact that you can't seem to stop.

If you can relate, and are ready to do the work it takes, then this course is for you, even if you feel like you've tried everything already.

Imagine… freeing up time and energy for the things you want in life and never having to worry about how your skin looks.

I also used to be stuck in the vicious cycle of this compulsive behavior, but today, I am free from the compulsive cycle of picking, covering up/hiding, and feeling badly about myself – something that dominated a huge part of my brain for so many years.

And for the last few years I've been helping others transform their lives and go from a hopeless and out-of-control place to feeling positive and free.

I know you may be doubtful that this kind of result is possible for you, but I truly believe you can overcome this compulsive behavior, with the help of a well-thought out and tested plan, like the one my coaching clients have.

Previously, your options were... my book for information and inspiration, or private or small-group coaching. But now with this course, you have a third option of learning from me via my audiovisual presentations and accompanying worksheets.

Course participants share how they have benefited from the course:

"I have made tremendous progress and I am very proud of it. I am thankful because I have found lots of tools to help myself."

"I am seeing a light at the end of the tunnel and previously didn't think this tunnel had an end. So grateful for this progress."

"I am more satisfied and motivated than I was in previous attempts where I gave up more easily and took less different actions."

"I have shown myself that I'm capable of not picking, and of understanding my picking more intimately."

"I am learning to not judge myself and trust that this behavior will stop."

"The first few modules... were extraordinarily enlightening."

"The picking is not a big problem for me anymore."

What was most helpful?

"The detailed worksheets. And the whole structure of the course. And that it is broken down in the most important lessons compared to a whole book."

"The positive material that has enabled me to have the tools to stop."

"All of it really."

Here's what you get:

Module 1: Mindset Matters

How to shift your thinking from a focus on all the doubts you have (can I ever get better?) to a focus that magnetizes you to success. Get over those blocks that have been holding you back until now.

Module 2: Seeing Your Picking Clearly

Learn how to expose the "who, what, where, when, why" of your particular picking patterns so you'll be able to accomplish the "how" of stopping.

Module 3: Learning From Your Log

Break it down and be your own "picking detective". Find hidden patterns in your picking that you'll learn to disrupt.

Module 4: Blocking, Redirecting and Sensory Strategies

Bust up those picking patterns starting now!

Module 5: Get Calm and Focused Fast

Picking happens when we are amped up or spaced out. Learn to change your state super-fast into one that is incompatible with picking, so you can stop before you start.

Module 6: Midway Motivational Tools

Use these new strategies to keep yourself going when your motivation is waning and you are feeling discouraged.

Module 7: Troublemaking Thoughts

Yes, your own thoughts get you to pick! Learn to recognize those troublemakers and change them into thoughts that lead you away from picking instead.

Module 8: Food Matters

Is your diet a disaster for your picking? Learn the most common culinary picking pitfalls, and how to test whether certain foods affect you.

Module 9: Nutritional Supplements

Sometimes supplements can make a big difference. Learn which ones might decrease your picking and which might clear up your skin and help you heal faster.

Module 10: Long Term Success

How do you keep this up long enough to break free? In this last module I set you up to keep it going. You'll also learn how to meditate, and you also get my guided meditation audio.
