I’ve worked over the years with hundreds of people who used to bit their nails. Notice I said “used to”. Hypnosis is one of the truly remarkable solutions to a problem people can’t wait to get rid of.
I’ve never met one person who bit their nails who liked it. Sure, it provides some comfort, but almost universally most of the people who do it absolutely hate it. They can’t wait to stop doing it and most of them were unaware of how effective hypnosis was in changing their lives.
I’ve found that Nail-Biting is socio-genetic. That means it usually comes from within your family, with 75% being a mother-son and father-daughter transference. It is not like a disease that travels in one’s family, being that there is no pathological part to it. It’s not anything weird, actually it comes from when we were young children and we learned, unconsciously, to react to stress the way our parents, or even a sibling did. It’s not deeply psychological or a sign of deeper troubles, it’s just a habit we picked up at a very young age, as simple as that.
In fact, it has no more significance than a patterned response and if I was to ask the parents of most of my successful Nail Biting clients, they would say one of their parents did it too. You are not crazy, there is no deep seated emotional issues. It is a simple habit you picked up when you were very young. You may not have started doing it until later on, but it always was impressed upon your subconscious as a response.
The bad news is that it is a big deal to you and a habit like this is hard, if not impossible to break. Many Nail Biters go through their entire lives doing it. The good news is that hypnosis can help to change it, stop it and make it not happen anymore.
I find that we can make great changes in as few as one or at the most three sessions, where people will never, ever, bit their nails again. Most of the clients I see for this tell me they have a great sense of relief, like they overcame a tremendous burden in their lives. I never did it, so I don’t really know, but I do know how much they appreciate what we do here. They say their lives are changed so very much for the better.
