Hypnotherapy for Sabotage & Destructive Patterns of Behaviour

How we can help you overcome sabotage and destructive patterns with hypnosis


Destructive Patterns of Behavior

We see many clients with destructive patterns – some that have engaged in self-harm, some that were addicted to substances (nicotine addiction, marijuana addiction, alcohol abuse, binge drinking etc.), some who have had eating disorders (binge eating, bulimia, anorexia, exercise bulimia etc.), some who were in volatile relationships and some that have even contemplated suicide.

Clients in destructive patterns often get overwhelmed when modern-day stressors get on top of them and their way of coping is to engage in the destructive patterns. At the core of these patterns are negative beliefs, negative thoughts and negative feelings, which then drive the behaviours like a well-oiled machine.


These destructive patterns are said to be sabotage when the behaviours reoccur and interfere with achieving goals, and you become ‘your own worst enemy’. People who self-sabotage tend to be hard on themselves, critical of the decisions they make, and often question why they did or said whatever at the time. Ironically this self-judgement can further perpetuate the cycle of destructive patterns!

Clients suffering from addictions, depression, bipolar disorder, anxiety, borderline personality disorder and low self-esteem may be more prone to sabotage and destructive patterns.

Simple ways in which you may be sabotaging yourself include:
Leaving things to the last minute
Perpetually running late
Missing deadlines
Hitting below the belt when arguing with a loved one in relationships
Engaging in risky behaviours – affairs, etc.
Not studying before an exam
Stopping an exercise regime that makes you feel good
Saying to yourself ‘this is too good to be true’ and expecting something bad to happen, or expecting yourself to ruin it (and it becomes a self-fulfilling prophesy)
And so many more!
From a logical rational standpoint, it is obvious most of the time to an outsider and even the person engaging in destructive patterns of behaviour and sabotage, that the consequence of their actions will lead to negative feelings, and a sense of failure, getting into trouble or disrepute. Yet the patterns continue because they are deeply embedded in the subconscious mind.


So how can we help? I’m glad you asked!
Whether your destructive patterns of behaviour or sabotage involve self-harm, an addiction or bad habit, eating disorder, or volatile relationship/s, procrastinating or holding yourself back in some way, whether they are mild or severe, relatively new or longstanding, we can help you to overcome them and establish new healthy patterns of behaviour.

The unconscious or subconscious as we like to refer to it as, is where we need to go via hypnosis to make the changes you want.

Through hypnotherapeutic counselling, we take a comprehensive history and identify key areas that need to be resolved in hypnosis for you to be symptom free, destructive pattern free, sabotage free. These encompass old beliefs that no longer serve you, as well as thought patterns, feelings and self-talk.

And just like no two Hypnotherapists were made equal, no two destructive patterns or sabotage are the same, though the outward behaviour or may appear identical, what is driving those behaviours, compulsions and feelings are going to be entirely different because your life experience is unique.

So how do we resolve your issues? Easily and effectively!
We take you into hypnosis and use various techniques to unlock and resolve the destructive patterns and sabotage, build and reinforce coping strategies, self-esteem, positivity, optimism and seal the deal with confidence.

Every client is different and every session will be unique, depending on the goal and techniques used. We have been described as the ‘mixed martial arts’ of therapy! See Unique Approach.

We also recommend, where applicable, our original On Demand Hypnosis Sessions to support you throughout your transformation.
