Taming the Inner Critic

The inner critic is a voice that is present within all of us. It is the negative voice we hear which both drives and punishes us. It’s the voice that asks’ Am I good enough”, ‘Should I be here” and many other self-critical phrases. This workshop demonstrates how to tame the inner critic by adopting an approach of self-compassion rather than self-criticism.

Date: Week 5, Wednesday 28 March

Time: 12.30pm - 1.30pm
