Feelings of insecurity often source from early in our lives: attitudes directed toward us, labels we were given, and attachment patterns we experienced. As we grow up, our insecurity is exacerbated by a negative internal dialogue known as the “critical inner voice.” By understanding where this inner critic comes from comes from, how it feeds our feelings of insecurity, and how to challenge it, we can start to overcome the forces that drive us to lack confidence and be anxious.

  1. Apply techniques to identify and challenge destructive thinking in clients
