‘Silence your Inner Critic, Unleash your Superpower – With Ann McCluskey

April 19, 2022 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm

Learn how to reframe your thinking to build confidence and achieve your goals

Exploring the thorny issue of the inner critic and how the way we talk to and about ourselves, and the language we use can affect our inner and outer world.

We will talk about self-imposed limitations and negative thought patterns and how we can form habits that serve us better in every day life.

We use words every day without realising how much they convey – words like ‘only’ or ‘just’ that come across as apologetic and playing small. Words – like thoughts – have an energy that either supports or harms us. The words of the inner critic never have our best interests at heart!

In this session we will find practical tips for silencing the inner critic and learn how to become our own cheerleaders.
