Hypnosis to Get Rid of Unwanted Habits

Get Rid of Unwanted Habits and Addictions

Gambling, drinking, online shopping, surfing the net, video gaming, the list goes on. These may seem like harmless enough diversions but if it’s something you feel compelled to do , if you feel agitated or uncomfortable until you “get your fix” – then you are no longer in control, of the behaviour, the behaviour is controlling you. Now is a good time to get rid of those unwanted habits!

Just think about all the things you can be doing when you’re the one deciding how you use your time, your energy, your resources, who you spend time with and where that is. Regain your self respect and sense of agency in your own life.

Hypnotherapy can help. Not by talking about the problem but by helping you to access that creative part of your mind where changes happen.  Hypnosis generates a trance experience that invites the possibility of new creative approaches, taking you beyond rational thinking. It is a relief to stop talking about the problem and to experience the possibility of new constructive behaviours that you are in control of.

No More Nail Biting

If you want to get rid of an unwanted unconscious habit such as nail biting, hypnosis can help.

Nail biting is a habit that may be associated with some other activity and is often something you do unconsciously. It may only be sometime after you have started biting your nails that you become aware of what you are doing.

Journal of Pediatrics describes Clinical Hypnosis as being effective in reducing habits such as nail biting, tricotillimania and thumb sucking.

Hypnotherapy works at the subconscious level to make the habit conscious, giving you more control of the habit. Once it has been brought into your conscious awareness and you begin to gain control, you can stop biting your nails. By using the resources of your subconscious mind and working at the same level of mind where the problem originates, you can get rid of that unwanted habit.

With hypnosis you can also address any emotional or stress issues that may be underlying the habit, reinforce positive habits and enjoy feeling calm and relaxed.
