How To Silence Your Inner Critic / Start

Welcome – and a Warning

Hello, and thank you for signing up to How To Silence Your Inner Critic.

Over the next few days, we’ll look at ways to think afresh about your Inner Critic.

But I wanted to start by introducing myself, with a recorded highlight from a talk I gave at a big commercial law firm.

It gives you a sense of what took me into hospital.

The talk went on to describe what I learned there. But this is enough to be getting on with.

As I said at the start of the talk, take what you like and leave the rest.

Here are two of the drawings you may glimpse in the video. I drew them both immediately after my first group therapy session.

I’m on the right, sobbing.

This next one is the image on the T-shirt I’m wearing in the video. It shows me feeling stunned and slightly relieved after that session finished. (Sobbing is very tiring.)

Again, I drew it at the time.

Anyway, here’s the video.

Let me know when you’ve watched it and I’ll send the next lesson.
