Compulsion: Barbara and Becky

Duration: 02:53 minutes

Barbara Williams has compulsively plucked out her hair since she was nine years old.

Her friend Becky asks her more about her condition, when it started, why she does it and the impact it has had on her life.

Barbara explains the shame she has lived with as a result of her trichotillomania and how she has learnt to live with it.
