Critical Self Talk and/or Low Self Esteem: A Gestalt Group Exploration

July 7, 2018 @ 10:00 am - 5:30 pm


Do you belittle yourself? Criticise yourself for what you should or shouldn’t be doing?

This one day workshop is an opportunity to explore your experience of critical self-talk and low self esteem within a safe and supported group setting.

Our aim is to support awareness through speaking and sharing your own experience and hearing from others.   As Gestalt therapists we believe that change is possible and different choices become available to us when we become more aware of ourselves.

During the day, we will spend some time on some structured exercises to support exploration and insight.  We will also have some unstructured group time where conversations can emerge from participant’s experiences on the day.

The workshop is open to anyone and everyone.  You do not need any specific experience of counselling, therapy or Gestalt.  The workshop is also suitable for mental health professionals, those in the helping professions, counsellors, psychotherapists and trainee therapists who may be interested in exploring their own experience of self-criticism and low self esteem within a group setting.



Facilitators: Faisal Mahmood and Emma Flax; experienced, qualified and  UKCP registered psychotherapists.

Some quotes we like:

Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate.  Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure… We ask ourselves who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous?  Actually, who are you not to be? … Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won’t feel insecure around you.  We are all meant to shine, as children do’.

Marianne Williamson, Author (quoted in Nelson Mandela’s inauguration speech)

‘Either we let self-doubt and feelings of inadequacy prevent us from realising our potential, or embrace the fact that when we turn our attention away from ourselves, our potential is limitless’ .

Christopher Reeves, Actor, Author and Activist.
