“I’m a professional working with the public directly. After biting my nails for over 40 years and being really embarrassed by my awful fingernails, I decided to do something about it. One hypnotherapy session with Bill plus listening to the CD he gave me and I have stopped it completely. I should have done it years ago.”
Brian S

“I work in a shop serving people all day long. Not only did I feel funny when I saw people looking at my chewed back fingernails, but I couldn’t pick things up easily. I went to Bill two times and haven’t bitten my nails since. I feel much happier and more relaxed, especially at work.”

“Our 18 year old daughter wanted to be an air hostess but felt too embarrassed to apply because of her fingernails. They were so badly bitten back that some days they would bleed. They looked terrible. A few sessions with Bill and she stopped biting them. It was a miracle. We had tried so many different things to help her stop but none of them had worked. She is now happily being an air hostess flying all over the world.”

Fingernail Biting

This is one of the easier problems for us to overcome.

Most fingernail biters have been doing it for a long time and it is now just a habit. Hypnotherapy is very effective at helping people overcome problems which are purely habit based.

Fingernail biters get a complimentary CD to back up the work in the clinic. Most fingernail biters only need one or two sessions.

Are you a fingernail biter?

Some people also pick at the skin around their nails and some bite at the skin around their nails.

Your life could be seriously affected in a number of ways if you are a chronic fingernail biter.

Having nails bitten right down may be affecting your work opportunities
  • It may be preventing you from getting a job.
  • It may be hindering your promotional prospects.
  • It may be affecting how you do your job, especially if you are dealing with the public.
It may be affecting how you are feeling about yourself.
  • It may be stopping you from doing things you want to do.
  • It may be affecting what you believe you can achieve.
It may be affecting your ability to develop relationships both in your social situations and at work.
  • It may even be getting in the way of you being able to develop a long term relationship with a life partner.
For most fingernail biting, it is purely a habit. Many started at an early age, often after seeing another fingernail biter. It has now become an unconscious, automatic action. While, for many, it may have started out as a response to a stressful situation that soon becomes ingrained in the person’s habitual behaviour. They now bite their fingernails in many different situations.

Similar problems include pulling out your hair (tricholomania), thumb sucking and grinding your teeth (bruxism)

Hypnotherapy is a very effective help to overcome habit-based problems. Huddleston Hypnotherapy has a very high success rate for helping people stop biting their fingernails.
