Habit Reversal

Habits such as hair pulling, nail biting, scratching or knuckle cracking are something that we do when we are bored, anxious or feel uncomfortable. It becomes an automatic response that we do without thinking and at the time can feel pleasant and offer relief and satisfaction. They are often caused by anxiety or stress and associated with negative thoughts that the habit can’t be changed. However these habits can have negative consequences and can cause a range of symptoms including 
 
Nail infections, 
Bald patches, 
Skin scarring,
