Who is running the show: You or your Inner Critic?

When your self-critical voice is ruling your life, it can cause more distress than we often realize. But you were meant to lead your Inner Critic, not the other way around.  Here are some signs that the voice of self-judgment may be calling the shots:

  • Feelings of shame or guilt
  • Unable to accept compliments
  • Working yourself to exhaustion
  • Wishing you belonged
  • Re-living past mistakes
  • Holding yourself back

For over twelve years I've been helping new clients understand the self-critical voice in order to make room for more authenticity and self-love.

Now I'm bringing you this transformative program by turning my therapy sessions into an online self-esteem course to give you the tools you need to live a more authentic life.

Seeking freedom from self-judgment?

    “This course offers us a rare opportunity to identify a part of ourselves that likely has great influence in our lives, without us even realizing it! Adrienne gives helpful visuals and practices so we can really see, hear and feel what our critics are all about. It's much easier to understand in this format vs. just reading about it. I have a deeper understanding now.”

Had I known...

My own Inner Critic has a practical tactical brilliance (a little Hamilton reference 😉).  It has so many moves and strategies; some known to me and others that have flown under the radar. Some of them deeply painful and damaging, and others that I can see now have been there to serve me. 

When I was in my teens my Inner Critic never took a break. Debilitated by self-consciousness, my longing to be someone else and my fear of rejection never ceased. This course offers the kinds of answers I wish I had when I was in my teens - to understand what was going on with me and how common it was.

But I didn't have this course then.

So I wish I had this way of seeing things in my twenties - When I worked myself to the bone all day, pushed myself into injuries, all so I could please others.

I remember once when I worked at a university and was invited to present to the Deans and Heads of Faculty. I prepared tirelessly for weeks hoping to achieve some visibility and maybe even a bit of praise, only to be told disapprovingly that I had "over-prepared"

But I didn't have this course then.

Oh and if I could have had this resource when I became a mother. When every choice I had to make with my new baby I feared would be the difference between life and death, rarely trusting my natural motherly instincts . How I reviewed and replayed my every action at the end of the day, and guilted myself for every "wrongdoing". 

Now, as I head towards "middle age" I am so thankful I have this way of catching my Inner Critic before it causes me distress. And now that I can discern my Inner Critic thoughts from the gentle callings of my True Self, I can trust that the choices that I'm making are leading me moment-by-moment into the beautiful life that was meant for me.

This sounds great but what if I'm no good at art?

The emphasis in expressive arts is on the actual process of the making, rather than the product itself. Within the creative process is where the insights, meaning and discoveries live. In other words, you can't be "good" or "bad" at expressive arts! And I'll guide you every step of the way 😊
