Journeys with the Inner Critic, 5th June 2018
Ran at the Royal Central School of Speech & Drama as part of the Central Alumni Network for therapists, counsellors, creative arts therapists and mental health professionals and trainees
No matter how hard you try, deep within you, you hear the whispers: ‘you are not enough’. You are not good enough; creative, brave, clever enough… Try again.. Yet, nothing will be “perfect”.. That familiar, old voice of your inner critic holding you back! Asking the impossible of you!
How can the painful demands of the inner critic be transformed and integrated? How can we use the energy of our critic towards creativity and life? How can we move towards feeling ‘enough’. This may be a personal enquiry for you, or more relevant for your client work.
This workshop is an invitation to connect with and listen to, the inner critic and give a place to what it needs to express. We will do this through movement, story enactment and ritual as well as process work in a circle.
When parts of us are deeply seen, when their needs are heard and held, we journey towards wholeness. As we do this, these parts begin to transform and they don’t need to work so hard any more. So, a warm invitation to this alchemical journey!
