How many times have you tried to stop nail biting?
With nail biting, you have become adept at hiding the tops of your fingers which results in clawlike hands. Girls are luckier than boys in this regard as fake nails can cover a lot of damage.
You know your nail biting is a symptom of something deeper. It is no different to smoking, over eating or drinking to excess. Nail biting is a hang-over from childhood, it is something going to your mouth to pacify upset feelings.
As an adult, you may recognise situations that will trigger a nail eating binge or it may be more subtle, something that you do in private as a way to alleviate stress/anxiety/upset that is going on inside you. It may even go further, eating the nails down until they bleed or picking hangnails until you bleed.
All these variations are designed to relief stress. But you understand that bitten nails represent an anxious person and this may not be the persona you want to be identified by.
Hypnosis or hypnotherapy (therapy under hypnosis), I will help you to develop feelings of self assurance. It is necessary to deal with the anxiety element – looking at what upsets your system so you feel strong enough to deal with them. It is about developing a more confident you and what it means to you to have nice “normal” nails.
Will I stop biting nails?
There are various ways to stop nail biting. Some clients like to let one nail grow at a time. Others can stop in a single session while some need some therapy to get over something in their past. Whatever the reason this began, you can overcome it.
We will look at other ways to let go of stress that fits into your life. There are no major adaptations to be made on your part only to follow my instructions.
