You’re not alone. Nail biting often starts in childhood. In fact, over 50% of children and 45% of teenagers bite their nails, and it can continue into adulthood.
Not only does nail biting damage your fingers, but it can also have a more serious effect on your health.
It’s a compulsive habit, often resulting from anxiety or stress, and is classified as an obsessive-compulsive disorder. It is actually a very common way of reacting to stress for both children and adults. After a while it just becomes an automatic behavior that you seem to have no control over.
Hypnotherapy is very effective in treating all stress-related problems. Stress reactions are physiological as well as psychological. The trigger is psychological but the response is physiological. Once patients understand this connection, the rest is easy.
Most issues take four to eight sessions for people to reach their goal. Of course, this varies depending on the particular issue, on secondary contributing factors, such as sleep distress and stress levels. Most people experience noticable improvement after the first session.
