If your parents didn’t treat you lovingly, with respect for your intelligence; if you were harshly criticized and called “stupid” and told you would never amount to anything, you didn’t learn to treat yourself as intelligent and lovable. If you don’t regard yourself as valuable and deserving of good, it’s likely your parents failed to set the example. As a result, you often don’t treat yourself with honor and respect, and don’t feel worthy. Instead, you self-sabotage in any number of ways.
Accepting negative beliefs and feelings that undermine your confidence are other forms of self-defeat. Believing you don’t have what it takes to create a successful software company or feeling undeserving of a happy marriage are two examples.
Another way you may sabotage your good is by indulging in destructive emotions, such as wallowing in self-pity or holding onto to resentment. This behavior consumes your energy and keeps you stuck in a bad place.
Whatever you consciously or subconsciously think, feel, believe, or do that inhibits manifesting your good and living your life with passion, accomplishment, and satisfaction is a form of self-sabotage.
The following list includes common benefits clients manifest:
What Causes Self-Sabotage?
A person who chronically engages in self-sabotage has a poor self-image and low self-esteem typically resulting from how they were raised and how they developed as adults. Most commonly, self-saboteurs suffered some form of abuse to some degree as children—whether emotional (e.g. neglect or manipulation), mental (e.g. being called “stupid”), or physical (e.g. being beaten or sexually molested).

Overcoming Self-Sabotage Using Hypnosis
Hypnotherapy is a relaxing, natural, and safe, brief-term form of therapy that involves an interactive process to redirect attention in both the conscious and subconscious mind where patterns of self-sabotage develop and fester.
Symptoms of Self-Sabotage
The following list includes common signs of self-sabotage. If you exhibit some, many, or all of these, you would likely benefit from hypnotherapy to stop sabotaging your happiness and well-being.
Self-image and self-esteem begin forming at a very young age in the subconscious mind. It forms in response to interactions with parents (or other primary caretakers). Young children model their parents’ (or caretakers) behavior; they learn how to act from listening to what their parents say and watching what they do. They also learn how to treat themselves from the ways their parents treat them. Whether they receive love, affection, tenderness, and concern, or anger, violence, impatience, or detachment, determines, to a great extent, how healthy or unhealthy their self-image and self-esteem initially become.
Stop Self-Sabotage With Hypnotherapy
What is Self-Sabotage?
Self-Sabotage, is any behavior you engage in, consciously or unconsciously, that harms you or undermines achievement of your goals. It’s consuming the entire chocolate cake in one sitting when your goal is to lose fifteen pounds or watching hours of television instead of studying to ace tomorrow’s final exam.
Unfortunately, the abuse that causes a poor self-image and low self-esteem tends to be learned behavior passed down from generation to generation. Parents who abuse were most likely abused. Children that develop low self-esteem and a poor self-image, if corrective action is not taken, perpetuate the cycle, growing up to be parents who raise children whose low self-esteem and poor self-image cause them to self-sabotage.
The first step in the process is to gain understanding of the client’s problems and goals. I engage them in cognitive inquiry to determine what their goals and issues are, and to assess whether they have the appropriate motivation and acceptance. Next I induce deep relaxation and inward focus. This calms their emotions, diverts conscious thought, and allows access to their subconscious mind. Then I present a variety of hypnotic suggestions, visualizations, and other techniques that nourish and support development of the positive attitudes, feelings, beliefs, and actions necessary to replace self-sabotage with self-empowerment.
Hypnotherapy to end self-sabotage involves the use of various tools and techniques to create positive changes in attitudes and beliefs about the self, promoting a healthy self-image and increased self-respect. As a result, new patterns of constructive thinking and action also emerge, provided the client does their part by practicing with the tools and techniques in between sessions.
The ideal hypnotherapy client is someone who really wants to improve their life, believes that positive change is possible, and is willing to do what it takes. They must be open to the hypnotherapeutic process and use the tools and techniques provided them.

The following list includes common negative effects of self-sabotage. If you suffer from some, many, or all of these, self-sabotage could well be the cause and hypnotherapy to stop your self-sabotage may provide the help you need.

Hypnotherapeutic Treatment Plan to Stop Self-Sabotage
The specific treatment plan to end self-sabotage must be customized to each individual client’s needs, history, and issues. There is no “one plan fits all.” The general approach I take to each case, however, is outlined below.
Not all self-sabotage involves counterproductive actions. Sometimes you sabotage yourself by omission. You fail to do what you know is necessary to achieve your goal, perhaps because it is difficult, boring, uncomfortable or even painful. You drop out of school, let dishes pile up in the sink, stop working out or doing your physical therapy.
