It’s one of the most common and persistent habits around – but with hypnotherapy you can stop nail biting!

Hypnotherapy can help you or someone you know stop nail biting

If you are nail biter, you will know how hard it is to stop. Despite the unattractive appearance and the pain, it seems an impossible habit for you to break.

Hypnotherapy can change all that.

Nail Biting

Not only for nail biting, but also for all similar persistent habits, including

  • hair pulling and twisting
  • skin picking
  • thumb sucking
  • all those other annoying habits

It doesn’t matter how long you have had the habit, or how entrenched you think it is – hypnotherapy is a real solution.

Stop repeated behaviours

If you bite your nails, you probably do so unconsciously most of the time. It’s a behaviour you have repeated so many times that it’s natural and familiar. And now it’s a compulsive behaviour that you can’t stop, however much you wish you could – and however much the people around you tell you that you should!

Our hypnotherapy program addresses your habit at an unconscious level – the level at which it occurs. I can show your brain that your habit is unwanted and unnecessary. We can discuss whether you would like to replace your habit with something more useful and appropriate – or simply stop it altogether.

Hypnotherapy is a quick and effective way to get rid of those habits that have been plaguing you for years. And what’s more, in the majority of cases, they never come back!

Why Does Compulsive Nail Biting Occur?

Compulsive nail biting is most often a habit that you are completely unaware of while you are doing it.  You see the results, of course, in your damaged nails and embarrassment at the way your hands look, but you have no awareness of when you are actually biting your nails.  It is not enough, then, to try to get rid of compulsive nail biting by using will power or other “tricks” to stop the habit.

Some of the symptoms of and signs of compulsive nail biting include:

  • Cuticles that bleed
  • Sore, red finger tips
  • Frequent infections in the mouth and fingernails
  • Deformed and misshapen nails
  • Dental problems affecting the teeth and gums

Even more damaging than the physical impact of compulsive nail biting is the emotional impact is has on your life.  It is common to have strong feelings of guilt or shame about the habit, even though it is an unconscious behaviour that can affect anyone at any age.  Compulsive nail biting is based in an automatic thought pattern that you learned at some point in your life, so if you want to eliminate this problem then you have to eliminate the faulty thought pattern.

You have to re-train your mind with a different thought pattern, one that is positive and constructive, and make it part of your deep inner resources.  Once it becomes an automatic part of your unconscious mind, the old behaviour disappears the new, more desirable behaviour takes over.
