The Voice inside your mind

1 May

I deal with a lot of clients for all kinds of personal issues including self confidence, public speaking, weight management, smoking etc. Many times clients mention the torment created by their inner voice, the voice inside their mind which is consciously expressing their thoughts. Some people refer to it as an inner critic.  Sometimes they don’t notice it and sometimes they wish it would shut up and give them some peace.  It is sad that sometimes it is saying nice things about them and they tune this out. More often than not, when this voice inside their head is stuck in a tape loop criticising, judging and recriminating them for some action or omission, they are listening to it intently and the more they listen to it, the more ammunition it fires at them, generating more and more negative thoughts which may transform into feelings of anxiety, worry, dejection or depression. What a great state to be in?
