Green Leaves


Hypnotherapy can be used to treat a variety of repetitive behaviours such as:  

  • Skin picking disorder (Dermatillomania)

  • Nail biting (Onychophagia)

  • Hair pulling (Trichotillomania)

  • Teeth grinding (Bruxism)


Hair pulling, skin picking, teeth grinding and nail biting are often unconscious ways to escape from feelings that are hard to process, like anxiety, avoidance, boredom or stress. You may experience a ‘zoned out’ feeling of comfort and relaxation while pulling or picking, but afterward, you experience feelings of guilt or disappointment in yourself.  The good news is, by using hypnotherapy you can create a new response in the situations.
