Note from the Counsellors' Desk - June 2022

Centre for Counselling and Health Services (CCHS)

Dear Student,

Have you noticed that little voice that comes from within? Have you observed the kind of tone, choice of words it uses on you? Who controls that voice? Obviously you, 0right! Is it something we can work on, if our inner voice does not serve towards our progress? Ask yourself, is your internal monologue  friendly? We all have that inner voice that so often turns as our inner critic. But how often are you subjected to your own critics, is also important to understand?

Some ways to work on your Inner voice are.

  • Be aware of your own thoughts.
  • Replace overly critical thoughts with realistic statements.
  • Accept your tricky brain.
  • Step outside yourself, and look at your situation as a third person point of view.
  • Watch your tone with yourself.
  • Watch the kind of words you use for yourself.
  • Embrace the practice.
