Are you struggling with a nail biting?
CBT Therapy aims to help you be able to identify patterns in your behaviour. It can also help you cope with feelings that are difficult to manage, which could be the cause of your chronic nail biting habit.
What is chronic nail biting?
Chronic nail biting is classified as a habit disorder. Habit disorders can range from hair pulling (trichotillomania) and lip biting, to gambling and pathological stealing (kleptomania). Nail-biting may occur without conscious notice or may be a focused behavior. It usually begins in early childhood and intensifies during adolescence.
