Is your Inner Critic so loud (and nasty) that you can’t hear your own voice?
Or perhaps so sly and convincing (and sometimes sweet) that you
no longer know your real voice?
You’re not alone!
MANY women have a particularly vocal inner critic.
It pushes them to work harder, to seek constant approval, to look perfect, to be perfect, to have a perfect home, family, vacation…
And boy does it get loud when they stumble, fail or receive criticism. It raises the bar even higher and watches like a hawk for signs of failure or criticism.
And it totally loses it when they’re about to step outside their comfort zone and seek out opportunities that make them giddy with excitement. “Who do you think you are?” it asks to make sure they never think of speaking up or stepping out again.
Many of us give in to its bullying
We push ourselves at the expense of joy and health and relationships
We justify our reasons for playing small and let our ideas go unheard
And we waste our brilliance that can make a difference in the world
I’m so happy to bring you this mini-course on Managing your Inner Critic and Growing Your Inner Guide.
I created it because in my work over the years, I’ve seen over and over again that many women do not have the tools to manage a particularly loud inner critic that keeps them stuck in a job or a life that fails to tap into their full potential. They end up stuck, frustrated, overwhelmed – some of them lose their confidence and sense of hope, and some live with regrets and feelings of emptiness.
The simple process I share with you in this short course is one that’s solidly backed by academic research and that has helped hundreds of women I’ve coached and trained over the years. And its helped me deal with my own inner critic that is disconnected with the vision I have for my life. Because inner critics always are!
How it Works
Manage Your Inner Critic is a self-paced online course. It moves you through a cycle of deep understanding to practical application in a format that’s easy to access and engaging in content. Through the audios and worksheets, you’ll begin to unravel yourself from the controlling grasp of the inner critic and embrace a voice that is accepting of you, of others and of the world that is open to you!
You’ll Also Get:
Audio Lessons: Each of the 3 lessons contains a short audio lesson that you can fit into the busiest of days. I don’t want the course to be one more item on your to-do list that adds to your stresses!
Worksheets: Each lesson also comes with one or more practical and evidence-based worksheets that translate the lesson into deep learning and / or help with lasting behavioral change.
Research: You also get a compilation of the research base behind everything we discuss in the course. This is to help those of you who want to dig deeper into the academic aspect as well.
If you feel ashamed or self-doubting when you hear the voice of your inner critic, or frustrated or stuck because you’ve been listening to it for way too long, or perhaps drained with trying to argue with it constantly (and we all know it never gives up), this mini-course can help you!
For the longest time I struggled with an inner critic that could be so mean that I would cry. I tried everything to get rid of it. I argued with it, I challenged it, I spent many years in counselling. But I can honestly say that the understanding and tools I’ve learnt through this course have brought me the freedom I never thought possible.
I loved this course because its so practical and it helps me understand my mind so well. I’ve learnt to be so much more at peace with myself instead of beating up on myself all the time. And I’ve found so much strength inside of me that feels real, not like a mask to look strong.

A kind, thorough and thoughtful teacher. Homaira has taught me to listen to my fears, to be stay with them, and to finally become my own best friend. I could do that to every one else except me. But now, its a new relationship where I feel so grounded and one with myself.
- Nancy P
Each of the 3 modules provides you with an understanding of the many voices within you – some fearful, some loud – and some not getting a word in! You’ll learn how to recognize and manage each one of them, so you don’t let your fears determine your life. After all its your one and precious life!
The Inner Child
You’ll take an inner journey to get to know your needs and vulnerabilities, why you talk to yourself the way you do and the core beliefs that underlie your reactions.
The Inner Critic
You’ll get deep into the many faces of your inner critic, when it shows up the most, what it says and how it says it, and its underlying motives and intentions.
The Inner Guide
You’ll create a lasting best friend that never deserts you, strengthen its voice so it can deal with the inner critic, and the secret on how to tell the difference between the two.
How much time do I need?
The course is purposefully designed to take no more than an hour or two of your time from start to finish, depending on how deeply you reflect on the learning or the worksheets. The practical strategies offered are meant to become part of your day – and life – not taking up any more of less of your time!
How long can I access the course?
The course is yours to keep for the lifetime of the course. It’s a lifestyle course, which means you may need reminders to change old habits that may not be serving you well. Or to show up fully when life throws you a curve ball and you react in self-defeating ways. You’ll access them by logging in to your account.
How is this course different?
Most of the courses on the market show you how to challenge your inner critic – a draining strategy that works momentarily at best. Getting rid of the inner critic is impossible because its based on the fear response. Research shows that the best way to take back charge of your life is to find and strengthen your true voice. That’s what this course is about!
What if I’ve never taken an online course before?
I want to assure you that the technical aspect of these courses is very intuitive! Me and my technical team have worked hard to create an experience that’s easy and engaging. You log in, listen to short audios and complete the worksheets online or by printing them out.
