Stop Nail Biting using Hypnosis
is a very effective treatment for nail biting. Nail biting is usually
just a habit, but it is an automatic habit, and because it is a
subconscious behaviour, people are usually in a "nail biting trance"
when biting their nails.
lot of people don't actually bite their nails, but pick at them, and
pick at the sides of their nails, and at the cuticles.
people bite their nails just to keep them short, sometimes there is a
more deep rooted psychological cause, and it's usually an automatic
involves finding out the nail biting strategy, and interrupting it, so
behaviour changes at the times an old nail biting
deep rooted unconscious motivations could be "self punishment",
"identification with someone significant", "an internal conflict",
"a significant past traumatic event or events", "an imprint by
significant", "metaphorical communication from the unconscious",
serious types of nail biting where people don't just bite of their
nails, but also bite off bits of flesh around the nail could be a type
of self punishment at the unconscious level.
therapy would be aimed at uncovering the root cause event, the first
significant event that caused the subconscious mind to start the nail
biting habit. This root cause event is not necessarily the first time
there was nail biting, but the first significant event in relation to
event, and subsequent significant emotional events related to nail
have been found, we then want a resolution at the subconscious level of
this event and subsequent related events. This means that the
can be rationalised consciously and unconsciously, and releasing the
emotional charge from the event(s). If there was a positive intention
or positive intentions at the unconscious level, the nail
be a misguided attempt to achieve the positive intention(s).
it may be a good idea to persuade the unconscious mind to use a more
useful strategy to achieve the positive intention(s)!
the root cause(s) have been found and rationalised, and the nail biting
strategy has been interrupted and replaced by a new strategy, it is
important to use the CD / MP3 for follow up at home so the change can
be embedded more deeply at an unconscious level.
