We all lack confidence at times and sometimes need some help to engage with and master the task at hand.
Do you feel that you must please everyone else to be valued? That your needs should be put last behind everyone else? Are you afraid that you are not as good as other people? Do you feel that you don’t have friends, that you are hopeless or useless? Do you constantly criticise yourself?
It is when those dark thoughts become so intrusive that they stop you enjoying life that it’s helpful to talk to a trained professional, and explore in depth about where those thoughts came from, and whether it is truly your voice – or someone else’s critical voice that you are hearing.
