Chew fingernails habit
Malte Kröll – our expert for biting fingernails.
He’ll explain to you what’s at the root of this and how you can get out of biting your nails.
Bite to the Blood
Let’s not talk about it any further: Fingernail biting, called “onychophagia,” is annoying and looks unsightly, but you’ve already tried everything to get rid of it. You smeared bitter tinctures or mustard on your nails, strapped a rubber band around your arm to measure yourself for every bite. Perhaps you avoided shaking hands with your counterpart because you were ashamed of your vice. Now, as you read this text, you look at your fingers and find a crater field. So far, nothing has helped.
Consequences of fingernail biting
Once fingernail biting has become a behavioral addiction, it usually results in physical and psychological symptoms. The consequences can be summarized as follows:
- Painful inflammations
- Unkempt appearance of the hands
- loss of confidence
- Shame in many everyday situations Situations such as eating with other people, shaking hands.
- Obstacles to professional success, e.g. job interviews
Treat the fingernails like your own children
Where does fingernail biting come from? What are you compensating for? These are questions we will be asking. What is certain is that when you are under a lot of stress, nibbling serves as an outlet, effectively counteracting the overload on your nervous system. Deeply emotional events are not always associated with this stress symptom; a childhood experience is not always to blame. What exactly underlies the chewing, we will find out in hypnosis with effective methods in a few sessions.
The beauty of hypnosis? In the trance state, your subconscious mind is particularly susceptible to positive suggestions. We will permanently change and reset your inner evaluations. Stressful situations in which you reach for your finger will be redirected into relaxation. We show your subconscious other, more positive ways to unburden yourself. You are awake the whole time, we only give way to your subconscious for a short time. You’ll soon feel no desire to bite your fingernails.
