Nail Biting Hypnotherapy – Why?

The reason why most people bite their nails, whether in times of stress or directly through habit, is essentially the same mechanism as used by overeaters and smokers – it’s called ‘oral satisfaction’. Psychologists offer many different explanations.

Put simply, ‘oral satisfaction’ involves putting something in the mouth, be it a nail, a cigarette, cream cake, etc., and this will often be done in times of stress. We have all heard the term ‘comfort eating.’

Habitual or stress

Nail Biting Hypnotherapy – Nail biting can often simply be a habit, or it could indicate underlying stress, worry or anxiety. A person may bite your nails in times of stress or excitement, or in times of boredom or inactivity. They could be involved in an activity such as reading, watching television or talking on the phone, and bite their nails without thinking about it. It can also be a learned behaviour from family members. It’s the most common of the typical “nervous habits,” which include thumb-sucking, nose-picking, hair-twisting or -pulling, tooth-grinding, and skin picking.

Nail-biting is a nervous habit that most sufferers grow out of. However, if someone begins to worry about it and ‘try’ to stop it, the problem will persist. Like any bad habit, the more they try to use their willpower, the more they feed the negative thought-form.

Hypnotherapy Nail Biting Treatment

Hypnotherapy has been proven to be one of the most simple and effective ways of helping people to stop simple compulsive behaviours such as Nail and Finger Biting. Nail biting is usually a life-long habit, but the duration of the problem is irrelevant in terms of resolving it.

What is Hypnotherapy?

Hypnotherapy is a type of therapy that uses hypnosis, which is an altered state of consciousness.  At no time during the session, are you in a trance. You are aware of your surroundings. I will guide you into a very relaxed state of mind.
