Most of us are guilty of being harder on ourselves than we are on others. What our inner critic tells us about our progress and worth are things we would never say to a friend - and this can have devastating effects on our personal and professional development. We are living in an epidemic of self-criticism; nearly everyone suffers with it, no matter how successful.
If you want to fulfil your potential and realise your self-worth, you will need to tackle your inner critic - but this can be a daunting task. So how do you shut off that negative voice?
Enter leading life coach Fiona Buckland, who has worked with organisations including the School of Life, the United Nations, Google and many more. In her evening class, she will show you how to break the vicious cycle of self-doubt and setbacks, providing you with skills and techniques that you can integrate into your everyday life.
You will come away feeling confident in your abilities to reduce the power of your inner critic, diminish negative self-talk, and with an increased connection to those inner resources that energise and inspire you into positive action - even in challenging times. You will also learn how to be more present, to notice your habits of negative thinking, and how to take action with courage and compassion so that you can be more positive, effective, resilient and successful in every aspect of your life.
