Many clients come to me with the issue of beating themselves up internally. We call this the critical voice. The one that nags away in your head saying things like your not good enough, you wont do that, your to scared, you never stand up for yourself. This is just a few statements I have heard from my clients and I’m sure you have your own.
This voice can be very disempowering and hold you back in your life, creating you to feel anxious, depressed and generally bring’s you down. Often this voice has been created in childhood and is now out of date with your adult life. My task as a therapist is to help you understand how you are being hard on yourself and help you find new ways of coping.
By becoming aware of your critical voice you can begin by changing how you speak to your inner self and build a more loving, compassionate and kind ways of being. In doing this you are empowering yourself to live a more healthy life forming a better relationship within. This is very important as what you put in you get out. When you are hard on yourself others tend to be hard on you too. By changing this way of being you are actively seeking a more positive out look on life.
