Silencing Your Inner Critic
EmpathyWorks Psychological Wellness

This inner voice is critical and judgemental, and often has a negative impact on our emotions, causing us to feel insecure, fearful or discouraged. However, we can learn how to silence this inner critic, so that we can have cope better with life’s challenges and lead a more fulfilling life.

The following areas will be discussed:
- Relationship between our thoughts, emotions and behaviours
