"I have bitten my nails ever since I was a kid; I never knew when it first started however I know it was because of school.  I knew I needed to do something about it when I came to the conclusion that I had never known myself to have perfect hands.  That saddened me.

I asked for Karen’s help and since then I have been working with Karen, and glad to say I am continuing to work with Karen to sort this out.  After three sessions I have come to many realisations but I didn’t realise I had a little stored up anger.  I have never thrown objects, punch doors or people for that matter but I would let the silliest things get the better of me.  After two sessions with Karen I realised that I was in these situations and I was not getting worked up.

It was after the third session that something very strange happened.  I was trying to get the awkward blob of Tiptree Brown Sauce from the bottom of the bottle by shaking it - not content with having half a bottle of sauce that was willing to shift.  I thought the cap was on securely, but I only realised that it wasn’t when it exploded and my kitchen, the walls and floor, the doors, fridge and myself were covered in sauce.  I couldn’t believe how calm I was.  I didn’t swear, shout or lose my temper.  In fact, I was so calm I thought I had a mental breakdown and therefore had given up caring.  But I hadn’t lost my mind, I just lost my anger!  Yes, it took me over two hours to clean it but all the while I was calm.  Don’t ask me to explain it because I can’t.

I continue to work through my habit and I am biting my nails less and less and I look forward to the day when I just stop.  By going through this process I know I am losing some other things that are not as obvious as nailing biting.  I am just glad that I asked for help and so glad that it’s Karen I am working with to get that help”.

No therapy can give you a 100% guarantee of a cure. Whilst clinical hypnotherapy is very safe, if you suffer from epilepsy, or are undergoing psychiatric treatment or taking antidepressants, then you should obtain a letter from your doctor to confirm that you may have hypnotherapy.
