  • Why people bite their nails
  • The negative impacts this can have
  • And my 5 top tips to help you stop the habit

We will also look at how you can use hypnotherapy to change your subconscious patterns and stop nail biting for good!

There will also be a free hypnotherapy audio at the end of this podcast that you can enjoy, keep and come back to time and time again. 

Why do people bite their nails? Nail biting is usually a subconscious pattern that you're unaware of doing. Is it just your nails or do you chew or pick the sides of your fingers or your cuticles too?

This is usually a bad habit that kids grow out of in time, or are shamed into stopping but some people continue to bite their nails long into adulthood where it can have many different negative impacts

Are you more prone to nail biting when you're

People bite their nails for different reasons. Is it a time killer or a stress management tool? Do you get some satisfaction out of biting? Is there any reward?

There are many different negative impacts which can include

  • Damage to your fingers
  • Pain, discomfort and bleeding
  • Shame or embarrassment
  • Nail infections
  • Frustration
  • Illness
  • Damage to your teeth

Which can cause their own added problems. Has your nail biting habit stopped you from

  • Socialising with friends or not wanting to meet new people?
  • Dating, do you find yourself thinking “who would want me and my manky hands”?
  • Going for a promotion?
  • Or held you back from doing something?
  • Do you avoid situations because of the look of your fingers?
  • Made you feel like a failure?

If you bite your nails as a stress management tool but the look of your hands is making you feel stressed the habit can begin to feed itself, you are caught in a downward spiral that can be difficult to break out of on your own.

How can you stop nail biting for good? You’ve probably tried different techniques without much success. Going cold turkey can be difficult if you’re telling yourself all day “don’t bite your nails, don’t bite your nails” If I ask you not to think of a purple elephant you have to think of that elephant to know what you shouldn’t be thinking about. It’s the way our brains work so really you’re telling yourself time and time again to think about nail biting. Which will erode even the strongest will-power over time and lead you back to nail biting. It’s also difficult to stop with will power if you’re unaware you’re nail biting, if it’s a subconscious pattern the damage is done before you realise what’s happening.

How can you stop nail biting with hypnotherapy?

If you experienced pleasure from biting this can be changed to pleasure when you file your nails or something else you find pleasurable. We can use positive suggestions that are reinforced with repetition to change your subconscious reactions and patterns of behaviour.

You can create the success in your mind during trance, being able to see yourself succeeding will help you achieve that success.

You can learn to manage stress and anxiety, deep relaxation helps you cope with the day to day stress we experience. Hypnotherapy can also help you build your self esteem and confidence which will help you build your determination to succeed and help you get back on track if you do find yourself nail biting after you’ve committed to stopping.

Today’s podcast includes a technique you can use to help you change the subconscious pattern of nail biting and suggestions to help build your confidence and live life with more energy. There are numerous techniques that can help you stop nail biting so if you find you need more help visit to have a bespoke recording made for you with your challenges in mind.

Podcast 19: Fly with confidence with hypnotherapy. Today I’ll be talking about fear of flying, how this is commonly experienced and how you can use hypnotherapy to help you fly with confidence. Listen to the podcast for my 5 top tips for a calm, relaxed state of mind.

There will also be a free hypnotherapy audio at the end of this podcast that you can enjoy, keep and come back to time and time again. 

Are you one of the many people who find it a bit nerve wracking to fly? Does the thought of it give you butterflies or knots in your stomach?

Fear of flying is one of the most commonly experienced phobias, ranging from mild anxiety to full blown panic which can feel irrational at times. A fear of flying can interfere with holidays with loved ones or business travel which could make you avoid that career you’ve always wanted or going to that country you’ve always wanted to visit. A holiday is supposed to be relaxing, if the thought of flying makes your blood run cold it can make what should be a relaxing experience a really tense and uncomfortable experience.

Why do we experience a fear of flying and how does this turn into a phobia?

A phobia usually builds up over time, it might start with a small incident like

  • Bad turbulence or having to make an emergency landing
  • Seeing accidents on the news
  • Someone you know might have a fear of flying and this has transferred to you, perhaps a parent or guardian had a fear of flying when you were a child?

There are many different aspects of flying that can create anxiety which can include worrying about

  • Terrorism
  • Fearing the plane will crash
  • Claustrophobia
  • Fear of panic attack
  • Fear of heights
  • Worrying about the pilot or their abilities

These anxieties all start with the flight or flight response which is there to protect us. It’s a response all mammals have, when we experience something that we perceive as exciting or dangerous our bodies and minds make a snap decision.

Do we fight or run? This causes a reaction within us that we have no control over. It is an automatic reaction to the stimulus. Humans are so intelligent that we can turn this response on just by thinking about something we find stressful and this is why thinking about being in a plane, booking a holiday, looking at a plane in the sky or seeing your luggage in the cupboard can cause this reaction and make you feel anxious. Our minds can’t tell the difference between a real and a perceived threat so our bodies react in the same way to a thought as they would to a physical threat.

How do you know if your fight or flight response has been triggered?

Commonly people will experience

  • Sweating
  • Feeling tense
  • Racing heart beat
  • Shallow breathing
  • Dry mouth
  • Feeling sick or actually being sick
  • Worrying about the flight for days, weeks or months in advance
  • feeling claustrophobic
  • feeling out of control
  • feeling fidgety or uncomfortable
  • or having a panic attack

Hypnotherapy is a great tool to help you make the changes you need to overcome a flying phobia. You can reduce the symptoms the anxiety causes and change your subconscious reactions to flying in a calm and relaxed state of mind. As I’ve said before, there are many different aspects of flying that can cause anxiety and there is an intervention for each one of these. Reducing anxiety and increasing relaxation will help you fly with confidence!

Looking into your reaction to flying, or the thought of flying, can help change the experience in the future. This gives you more control over your thoughts, feelings and reactions when you want to fly.

Podcast 18: Motivation to exercise with hypnotherapy. Today I’ll be talking about exercise, what happens if we don’t exercise and the benefits of regular exercise. And also how you can use hypnotherapy to build your motivation to exercise.

There will also be a free hypnotherapy audio at the end of this podcast that you can enjoy, keep and come back to time and time again. 

In the last two podcasts I’ve talked about building a better body image and how to manage your weight with hypnotherapy. These podcasts link together with this week’s to form a strong base that will help you achieve the ideal you.

We live less active lifestyles nowadays, we relax in front of the TV or computer and we walk less than ever. Using cars or public transport to get around. Fewer people are doing manual work, more jobs involve sitting at a desk now. Machines wash our clothes and dishes which is really helpful but means we move less and burn less calories than we would have in past generations. I love my dishwasher and I couldn’t imagine living without the washing machine so getting rid of these is NOT an option!

What are the benefits of exercise? Exercise lowers your risk of

  • Heart disease
  • Stroke
  • Type 2 diabetes
  • Stress
  • Helps you sleep better
  • Regulates your mood
  • Helps you work through challenges
  • Gives you a break from daily challenges
  • Helps you feel good about yourself
  • Endorphins are released

Hypnotherapy can help you build motivation to exercise in many different ways, you can challenge the reasons you use not to exercise and find ways to overcome these. Build your self esteem and confidence, feeling better about yourself will help you make the changes you want to without it feeling like a punishment.

You can improve your focus and concentration which allows you put your problems aside so you can enjoy your practice. Are you anxious about exercise or what others will think of you? You can overcome these negative emotions in a calm, relaxed way!

Hypnotherapy can also help you visualise success! Being able to see yourself achieving your goals will make it easier to achieve those goals, whatever they may be.

Today’s podcast will include techniques you can use to build motivation to exercise and to visualise your success in a relaxed and calm state of body and mind.
