7yo ds is pulling his hair out - he says he's bored

I took my 7yo ds for a haircut on Sat and the hairdresser asked me if he had been stressed. His hair was so thick and overgrown before it was cut that it wasn't noticable, but there are two little tiny bald patches on his crown.
I tried speaking to the gp today (I didn't want to take him because thought he'd be v distressed if he knew) but failed, then this evening, saw him shaking something off his fingers, and asked him what it was. "Oh" he said brightly "I keep telling myself I should stop doing that", and I said "what?" and he said "pulling hairs out"... shock

We had a chat about it and he said it's only started recently, and he does it when he's bored. I asked if it feels good and he said not particularly.

Help!
