Bad eating habits can make you fat and unhealthy. Through hypnosis you can alter the desire for those fatty, sugary foods and accept a new lifestyle and better choices.
Nail Biting is an ugly habit as it makes your hands look horrible. It is destructive to the nail beds and cuticle areas and often includes picking the skin around the nails causing bleeding and torn cuticles. It causes pain as well as embarrassment for the sufferer, especially when they have to shake hands possibly resulting in avoidance of social activity. Hypnosis effectively helps minimize the desire to bite or pick.
Procrastination is a bad habit. It is an avoidance behavior that causes low self esteem and becomes a habit after many years. Procrastination responds really well to post hypnotic suggestions. Once the behavior is altered your self confidence improves.
Teeth grinding (Bruxism), It usually occurs at night, while the bruxer isn't aware of it to stop it. You may have been a tooth grinder for years and not realizing it. Bruxism is also a physical manifestation of stress and tension. Hypnosis allows you to release nervous tension and stress and thereby stopping outward manifestations such as teeth grinding by pinpointing and processing the core reason(s) that have built up creating the outward need to teeth grind. Once the issues have been addressed properly, hypnosis is used to stop the need and thereby allow you to live your life free of the need to grind your teeth.
Chronic hair pulling (Trichotillomania) is a disorder that causes people to pull out the hair from their scalp, eyelashes, eyebrows, pubic area, underarms, beard, chest, legs or other parts of the body, resulting in noticeable bald patches. Hair pulling varies greatly in its severity, location on the body, and responds to treatment. For some people, at some times, trichotillomania is mild and can be quelled with a bit of extra awareness and concentration. For others, at times the urge may be so strong that it makes thinking of anything else nearly impossible. It is an obsessive-compulsive disorder and as such is a form of 'nervous' illness. Another view is that it's entirely a behavioral disorder learned as a reaction to prolonged stress. Most theories link this problem with stress but while it may be that high stress levels exacerbate the problem this may not be the originating cause. For many years hypnosis has been successfully used to stop this nervous behavior/condition.
Chronic skin picking (CSP) is a serious and poorly understood problem. People who suffer from CSP repetitively touch, rub, scratch, pick at, or dig into their skin, often in an attempt to remove small irregularities or perceived imperfections. It can occur when a person experiences feelings such as anxiety, fear, excitement or boredom. Some people report that the act of repetitively picking at their skin is pleasurable. Many hours can be spent picking the skin, and this repetitive behavior can negatively impact a person's social, work, and family relationships.
Biting the insides of the cheeks is more common than you think and can cause mouth sores and can be very painful. It can be caused by anxiety but often then turns into a habit.
Stop biting your nails, pulling your hair, procrastinating or doing other negative compulsive behaviors now.
Through hypnosis at Hess Hypnotherapy you will be able to call on the power of your subconscious to end negative bad habits, and even replace them with new, positive, healthy ones.
However you think of it, hypnosis is a method for communicating directly with the subconscious mind. Few people realize the awesome power their subconscious mind has over their lives. The causes for some "bad habits" are rooted in memories or perceptions that may be forgotten by the conscious mind and totally outside of conscious awareness, but are retained in the subconscious. Hypnosis helps to access the subconscious and change those habits quickly and easily.
Bad habits can be formed as early as childhood and can be caused by an addictive personality, repetition of a behavior, or often they come from "modeling" someone in the family who had the same bad habit. What may have been acceptable when we were kids, can be a bad habit as an adult. Many people suffer with stress and tension and some turn to tactile responses such as nail biting. Hypnosis allows you to release nervous tension and stress and thereby stop nervous habits allowing you to regain your self confidence and self esteem.
By using the powerful tool of hypnosis, we are able to communicate directly with the subconscious and make it become aware of all the negative qualities of the bad habit, and of all the positive benefits of stopping that habit. Then the next time you would have done the bad habit, your subconscious will quickly change your state of mind so you no longer even want to do the bad habit, because this time the subconscious no longer refers to the positive feelings you formerly were getting from the bad habit. Soon the bad habit will no longer even exist for you.
Habits are often very individual, for that reason it is not possible to name all the bad habits here. Since you have come to this page of our website, you probably have a bad habit you would like to remove from your life. This will be easily done through hypnosis, and when called for, you will just as easily replace it with a positive, healthy one. You will no longer have your bad habit, but will be free of it easily, and effortlessly, forever.
