  • "The inner critic is a structure that has life and energy only if we invest energy in it."

  • "Our negative inner critic treats us like a child and taming the voices in our head allows us at last to feel free to live our OWN lives with joy and expansion."

  • "We are what we believe we are – if we want to change our lives we need to know what we are saying to ourselves."

Taming the inner critic

Session Leader Eliza Meredith

90 minutes 1:1 online coaching

Together we explore your personal history of the inner critical voice. Recognising the impact of the “Superego”, our inner referee, informing us about what is right or wrong about how we are behaving, expressing ourselves, or saying – and also others! The voice that both puts us down and elevates us above others. We will explore aspects of childhood where the critic arose and identify what it has held you back from in life.

Who's the session for?

Anyone with a lively and nasty voice in their head!

Description

We spend our formative years being told what is right and wrong by adults, along with things about ourselves: “you shouldn’t”, “that was bad”, “be quiet”,“you can’t do that”, “that was so much better than them”, etc. By 6-8 years old the inner critic has solidified  and as adults we unconsciously let it rule our lives. Whilst it may be useful to know how to negotiate life when a child taking our first solo steps into the world, as adults we find ourselves being directed by the inner voices, being prodded and pushed through shame, guilt, criticism, pride etc.

Through careful  exploration we can find where these beliefs arose and find ways of working with them to quell the restrictive voices and thus release ourselves into a place of freedom, authenticity and choice. By instead learning to listen to our own inner voice of wisdom and intuition an ongoing transformation of our lives is possible.
