A habit is anything you find yourself doing “automatically” – as if the behavior has a life or mind of its own (nail-biting, teeth-grinding, thumb-sucking, etc). Handling habits is one of the specialties of the certified Hypnotherapist and life coach. If you don’t realize you’re doing something until you’re staring blankly at the aftermath (cigarette butt, nails chewed to a nub, etc) then you’re dealing with a habit.
Some people bite their nails when they are nervous, or clench or grind their teeth – sometimes even in their sleep. These things can be challenging, aggravating, or even embarrassing – and bruxism (teeth-grinding) can cause headaches and joint problems as well as damaging the teeth. Hypnosis techniques have proven successful in helping people to stop nail-biting, teeth-grinding, and change habits of any other kind.
Bed-wetting (enuresis) is another habit or behavior for which hypnotherapy has shown to be the best available treatment:
In a “…comparative study of imipramine and direct hypnotic suggestions” for bed-wetting “…children, ranging in age from 5 to 16 years, underwent 3 months of therapy with imipramine or hypnosis. At the 9-month follow-up, 68% of patients in the hypnosis group maintained a positive response, whereas only 24% of the imipramine group did.” [Banerjee, Sanjay; Srivastav, Anita; Palan, Bhupendra M. (1993). Hypnosis and self-hypnosis in the management of nocturnal enuresis: A comparative study with imipramine therapy. American Journal of Clinical Hypnosis, 36, 113-119.]
