How to tame your inner critic (limited tickets)
That inner voice of yours. Is it your worst critic or your greatest cheerleader?
Imposter syndrome is a term you may have heard of but perhaps you’re not really sure what it is, how it manifests itself and whether it’s something currently limiting you. Come along to this interactive talk by Gemma Holmes (The Peer Coach) for all of these answers and to learn how to transform critical self-talk into a powerful inner mentor.
Imposter Syndrome is a mind trap that leaves you with an intense feeling of self-doubt. It’s when despite evidence that you are successful, you still fear that you are going to be caught out as not good enough. Despite how little this is spoken about in professional circles, research has found 70% of successful people feel like this at some point. From Sheryl Sandberg (COO of Facebook) to Michelle Obama (needs no introduction), to Emma Watson and even Einstein himself, there are countless examples of highly successful individuals being taunted by their inner critic.
These thoughts are driven by our unconscious, which serves to keep us alive rather than to help us thrive. It’s our mind trying to help and protect us but is going about it in a really unhelpful way. These thoughts impact our health, productivity and self-belief. But it is possible to tame the inner critic, and this workshop will show you how.
Through a combination of coaching and NLP, you’ll get to know your inner critic and the positive intention behind those negative thoughts. You’ll learn how to quieten down that negative voice and amplify your inner cheerleader instead. And we’ll connect with your strengths and skills so you feel empowered to go forward with the self-belief to achieve what you’re truly capable of.
Health disclaimer: due to the potential inclusion of trance-based techniques, this event is not suitable for anyone with a history of epilepsy or psychosis. By booking your ticket you confirm you have never suffered from epilepsy or had a psychotic episode.
