Home > Canadian Treatment Providers

Unfortunately, there is no one size fits all cure for BFRBs. There is however, professional support available in the form of various therapies and treatment options such as medication, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Habit Reversal Training, Mindfulness, Talk Therapy and just plain old peer support.

CBSN does not endorse or recommend a particular treatment provider. Some of the professionals  listed below have successfully completed Trichotillomania Learning Centre’s Professional Training Institute and are familiar with various BFRBs.

As you can see, there are not many treatment providers in Canada. This is something CBSN hopes to change with our advocacy and training opportunities in partnership with the Trichotillomania Learning Centre. If you are a treatment provider and want to be featured on this list, please send us an email!
