Hypnosis to Stop Nail Biting
Every kid has heard that at some time or another. But it’s just downright annoying when the habit goes on and on, regardless of the number of times you ‘decide’ to stop! Without even noticing you’re doing it, you absent mindlessly chew those nails back into that ugly, painful condition again.
And that’s the whole problem – the nail biting is ‘unconscious’ – you do it without even noticing. So when you make a ‘conscious’ decision to stop nail biting, nothing happens – the cure has to happen in a different way…The decision to stop nail biting has to take place at an unconscious level!
Hypnosis can help you really change your behavior, and make the choice to stop nail biting a real one. Imagine yourself with:
- Long or normal fingernails
- No redness or scabbing on your hands
- No embarrassment
- No more hiding your hands for fear of exposure
- Ability to get manicures
- No beating yourself up for this habit
- Feel more confident, more professional
Hypnosis is actually quite effective for many habits such as nail biting, face picking, thumb sucking, and other undesirable habits.
These embarrassing and often chronic habits can be greatly reduced or completely eliminated using hypnosis, generally in 3 to 6 sessions.
Our hypnotherapist will do a thorough evaluation, asking you what your triggers are, and whether or not you derive a sense of pleasure or satisfaction from this behavior, or if it just seems to be a nervous habit, and so on. Then each session is personalized to address your specific beliefs / triggers. Suggestions and techniques are given to help develop better coping methods, and for feeling more relaxed and at peace in general.
Our clients usually see an improvement even after one session. Often clients will report a dramatic reduction in their habit right away. Some are actually done completely after just one session. If needed, however, 1 more session is recommended for lasting, continual results. It all depends upon how long this has been going on and the complexity the issue.
We all know the difference between how it feels when we say we’re going to do something and when we know we’re going to do it. When you cure nail biting properly, the urge to bites your nail disappears – there simply is no struggle!
