Taming the Anxious Mind
If you have a harsh and relentless inner critic, you also may be experiencing anxiety, low self-worth, perfectionism, strained relationships and more.
This inner critic feeds anxiety by creating impossible expectations for yourself. It says that taking care of yourself or prioritizing your own needs will make you selfish and that the only way people will like you is if you make every sacrifice to (at least try to) make them happy. It tells you that you're not good enough just the way you are. No matter how hard you work to get “unstuck,” the inner critic can make you believe that you don’t deserve to move forward or that you're not even capable of it.
If those anxious and critical thoughts have become second nature and you’re ready to break the negative and exhausting cycle, this group may be for you.
What happens in group?
This structured group employs strategies from mindfulness and acceptance-based therapies to better manage and relate to anxiety. Members will work toward accepting anxiety and transforming their relationship with it. The ultimate goal is to free those with anxious minds from the pull and constant struggle with anxiety so they can focus on living richer and more meaningful lives. The group will participate in experiential exercises and complete homework assignments geared toward developing daily mindfulness practices.
You’re a good fit for this group if you're feeling:
Mentally, emotionally and even physically exhausted from “overthinking”
Feeling down on yourself
Continuously putting your needs on the back burner (even when you try not to)
