Medcare receptionist, Joe, had been biting her nails ever since she could remember, and didn’t think she would ever stop – until she had a session with Medcare hypnotherapist, Angela Haram.

This is her story…

I’ve always bitten my nails, I  don’t know why, I guess it was a nervous habit.

I wanted to stop, but just couldn’t seem to do so.

When Angela started hypnotherapy sessions at Medcare, I thought I would give it a go. There was nothing to lose.

I didn’t really know what to expect. Angela got me to lie on the couch and just started talking to me while soft music played in the background.

I didn’t feel like I was in a trance or anything, just really relaxed.

After the session I felt positive and generally good. I did seem to be biting my nails less, but the problem had  not gone away completely, so I booked a second session with Angela.

I didn’t think about it much after that, then suddenly, one day, I realised my nails were growing.

That was a good few months ago now, and I have not bitten nor had the urge to bite my nails since.

I now wear nail polish and for the first time in my life am proud of my hands.
