What is Self-Sabotage?

Many people wonder “Why is my behavior the complete opposite of what I want?”. Self-sabotage occurs when your conscious mind (the one that is making your goals to eat more vegetables, save more money, floss every night, stop smoking, stop procrastinating, apply for jobs, etc.) is at odds with your subconscious mind (the part that controls over 85% of your life).

When there is a disconnect between your conscious goals and your subconscious mind’s goals, you can bet self-sabotaging behavior will always show up. Your subconscious mind MUST agree with your goals. It is critical that it does not see your goals to improve as a threat. It must not feel afraid of your new goal. To change. To be better. To improve. Hypnosis is a great way to reconfigure these subconscious thoughts to align with your goals.

Why Does Self-Sabotage Occur?

Why Does Self-Sabotage Occur?

Self-sabotage is truly an unconscious attempt at self protection or self-preservation. Have you ever felt like a fraud when you have already started working on a new goal? I have felt it whenever I have attempted to accomplish or try something new and possibly a lot of people knowing about it. Why? For me and many people (not everyone), it is the subconscious way of “damage control.”

    The subconscious tries to protect you from disappointment, humiliation, and criticism. It creates obstacles and self-sabotaging behavior to prevent the pains of failure. The problem is, these self-defense mechanisms can prevent us from flourishing and following through with our goals.

How Can Hypnosis Stop Self-Sabotage?

Advanced Hypnosis Protocols can stop you from self-sabotaging by targeting and rewiring the negative thoughts of the subconscious mind. Using these protocols you may:

  • Stop your self-destructive behavior
  • Be more assertive
  • Stop identifying to that part of your self as weak, having no self-control, or being a “loser”
  • Neutralize the reasons that are causing you to shoot yourself in the foot
  • Stop being the obstacle
  • See-through achieving your goal to completion
  • Feel proud
  • See your life improve
  • Make significant progress with your goals
  • Watch how your world opens up

I went into hypnotherapy because I had tried everything else for my anxiety. Ever since my 3 sessions with George my anxiety has gone down, I am eating and sleeping better, and I am happier and on less prescription medication. I originally needed his help with severe interview anxiety and now I have done 5 interviews and felt fine! I’m really happy I met George.

George was fantastic. Went in for help with my claustrophobia and I recently took four flights and I was very calm. The techniques he taught me worked really well! Very happy to say that he helped me a great deal!!

George is an excellent human being and highly effective clinical hypnotist. He spends a great deal of time learning about your unique situation and applying the best methods for successful outcomes.

For years I was letting my anxiety get out of control and snowball into new fears that were controlling my day-to-day life. I developed driving anxiety specifically at night and driving on highways. This anxiety would have me take a route that could be double the travel time just so I didn’t have to take a highway. I knew that I couldn’t continue my life in this manner and wanted my life to go back to before this anxiety started. I was doing Riki and was considering contacting that person, but I knew this was mental and Riki is chakra. I went on Google and looked for a hypnotherapist to see if this would be something that would help me. I stumbled upon Geroge and read all his reviews which were all positive on how he helped so many people get over their fears. I reached out to him and did his free 30-minute consultation, and I was immediately impressed with his questions and his plan to get me over these fears. I am tight on money, and he made it very easy for me to pay overtime so I could afford his treatment without breaking the bank, which was a concern for me. After the first session I really saw a change in me, and his different techniques helped me continue treatment in between sessions. Every session was different but after each one I got more and more confident in my fears and instead of avoiding them I was sort of looking forward to them so I could tackle them headfirst and test myself. After the final session I feel finally cured of my anxieties and I’m ready to tackle the world and do the things I always wanted to do. Thank you, George, for everything and helping me get through this time in my life and I’m ready to see what the future is in store for me.

I wanted to stop eating in the middle of the night--something I have done for 50 years. I started with the free introductory phone session, in which he did a test hypnosis. I have to say, from that point on I no longer ate in the middle of the night! I still completed the 2 recommended sessions to reinforce it. In one of the sessions, he reached something deep within me I did not even know was there. I do not consider myself suggestible so I am amazed despite the great reviews! I chose George from Google reviews so I'm leaving one as well.

I am so amazed and likely still processing what George and hypnosis has done for me.  I first heard about George and his hypnotherapy practice about 2 years ago from a friend who, with George’s help, successfully quit smoking and remains smoke free.  Once I got to the point that I knew I wanted to quit smoking, I contacted George.  I had no idea what to expect. George is a kind and compassionate person who took the time to get to know me and my smoking habits in order to design a hypnotherapy program to help me quit smoking. Now, 21 days after the 2nd session with George, I am happy to be a nonsmoker and I will never look back!  George provides the tools and support to be successful.In addition to the smoking cessation program, George helped me with anxiety and worries. The anxiety was keeping me from living my best life.  This wasn’t part of the package, but George being the kind and compassionate person that he is – couldn’t ignore how this was affecting me.  He went above and beyond, with hypnosis, to help free me from these anxieties.  He lessened my mental (and physical) burdens.  He wasn’t prepared to do this, but because he is an excellent hypnotherapist, he was able to pivot and use tools to address the anxiety.  I felt so great when I left and still do.  It was like I did 25 years of traditional therapy in 2 hours.  So freeing – all of it!  George, I can’t thank you enough for all of your help!

I want to start off by thanking you George. You have really changed my whole outlook on life in such a short amount of time. I left our session today in tears because you have helped me start my journey on who i truly want to be in this life. I also enjoyed your style of how you go about things and how you are cautious and always made sure i was comfortable moving forward in this session. I'm excited to take the next steps into my journey. You are a beautiful soul and i am just so appreciative of our session. I hope i am able to keep you updated on how much you have helped me!

I was not expecting on my first session to have such an in depth discussion. It was wonderful. I actually was in tears and left feeling like such a weight had been lifted. I didn't even know how much I was carrying with me emotionally let alone how to dissect, evaluate and handle it. We talked about many things I have been afraid to share. He made me feel THAT conformable. He gave me a plan to wake up and counteract my feelings daily. He gave me affirmations to do that still work for me today. I left feeling ..hopeful. I haven't felt like that since I was a kid honestly. I was surprised at his patience as well. We have had a second session and he nailed it again. I don't know how he does it, but he gets me to talk and share and realize that my power truly is within and that I can HANDLE my problems like everyone else lol I would recommend him to anyone who truly wants to change their life! There is nothing to be afraid of! I was ruled by fear until I had a session. I think I have a new lease on life:) ..and it feels amazing.

George is a consummate professional and unbelievably good at what he does. Be careful...after a session or two with him, you might end up doing something crazy and move 700 miles away like I did! But in all seriousness, George engages you and helps you uncover the hidden ideas about yourself that keep you stuck. If you're a person like me who has tried so many different things and felt like you couldn't see a way forward, George will help you untangle the knots of your psyche and guide you to a better version of yourself that refuses to settle for a mediocre life. You will gain tools that you will use for the rest of your life and you will expand your ideas of what's possible for you. I cannot recommend George enough...he helped me take off the blinders that kept me from seeing my potential, and for that, I will be eternally grateful for his work with me.
