Hi my name is Lisa and I came to George Swan for nail biting.
I am 26yrs old and have been nail biting my nail since 6yrs old, my mother was a nail biter and I must have copied her from a very young age. By the age of 16 I was biting my nails every day for about an hour, usually whenever I was thinking deeply.
Sometimes I could stop for a week or so however no matter what I tried I could never break the wanting to do it. I tried vinegar, bad tasting nail polish, nail grower, learning about its health risks, shellac nails, acrylic nails, painted nails, filing them so they were smooth, self-talks and many attempts at controlling my mind. I had a deep irritation about many things in life and kept biting and biting. It was destroying my confidence and trust in my own self-control, I felt ashamed and at time I would got sick in the stomach from all the crap under my nails disgusting.
I came to George and he didnt seem phased at all and said I would need 6 sessions to be over it. He took me through all these hypnotherapy topics; taming the inner critic, wanting change, stop seeking approval, breaking habits and positive thinking. Immediately I stopped biting my nails by 60% then 80% and now I dont bite my nails at all or want it. Now thanks to George the need to bite is gone.
The funny thing is, my nail biting relief is nothing compared to the relief of my once anxious, nervous, unconfident self. I never realised how much time went to seeking other peoples approval, putting myself down, thinking negatively. Two of my friends booked to see George as a result of it, they were shocked at how care free I was. I can now get on with my life. Im so grateful to George and have to say that he is worth every penny!!!
I HAVE WHITE BITS for the longest time ever!!
