How do we address the ‘Inner Critic’? The ‘Inner Critic’ – that internal voice with which we are all familiar; the self critical, self attacking dialogue, inflected by shame, sometimes loud, sometimes just a whisper, the voice we discern in people who present for psychotherapy; and indeed with which we may be all too familiar in our own experiences of self doubt, feelings of personal deficiency and aversion; the voice of the perfectionist, the imposter, the pleaser.
Paul Gilbert, professor of clinical psychology developed Compassion Focused Therapy (CFT) to specifically address high shame and self criticism, in people with histories of abuse and neglect, who have chronic problems, and who find self warmth and self acceptance difficult. Drawing on published literature, a conversation between Gilbert and Fonagy – Compassion and Mentalisation – and on exposure to workshops, this talk is a critical reflection on CFT.
