One to one help at Bristol and Bath Hypnotherapy to help you stop biting your nails.

If you're thinking "I want to stop biting my nails" or "How can I let my nails grow?", then maybe hypnotherapy can help you.

Hypnotherapy is a quick, easy, and effective treatment to help you quit nail or finger biting! 



At the simplest level, nail biting is a habit. We also know that the more stressed we are generally, the more likely we are to bite our nails. We're all familiar with the term "It was a nail biting moment". So nail-biting is both a habit and a stress related response. Many nail biters will know that their habit tends to come and go, usually worsening when stress levels increase and naturally reducing or stopping in relaxed time. Others do nail biting like an Olympic Sport...full time, whatever is happening! Actually, when people arrive for treatment they are often a little embarrassed for seeking treatment for something so seemingly trivial. You really needn't be! Nail biting and finger biting can be quite distressing. Nail biting can cause soreness and infection and certainly can be a cause of ongoing pain. Any habit we seemingly can't break can cause quite a lot of distress so please know that if you'd like some help with nail-biting you'll be welcomed, and nobody will think it's too trivial. Of course for many people the issue is cosmetic too. You may just have decided that your nail-less hands are an embarrassment. This too is very common. Hypnotherapy is great for habit breaking. We usually expect to make short work of breaking the nail biting habit with powerful post hypnotic suggestions which can re-condition your natural responses to stress and habit. Treatment is therefore usually quick. Two to four sessions is normal for nail biting. Sometimes to succeed we need to reduce anxiety generally, but for most, breaking the nail biting habit is quick and easy with the right understanding! One session, with a follow up will usually suffice.

If you'd like to discuss it further just contact me to arrange a way forwards. In really straightforward cases, we might skip the formal consultation and get straight on with it as we do with smoking. If there is added anxiety we might need to take our time a little more. I'll ask you a few questions when you call or contact me and we'll take it from there.
