Cognitive Therapy works well for me -it really helps me with my perspective on myself, the situation etc... but often wjen I'm trying to calm myself or use this sort of therapy when I'm feeling upset or down, this completly uninvited voice offers input on my thoughts and contradicts my cognitive therapy thoughts! It's like I'll be telling myslef why I shouldn't feel shame about things in my life and this voice just pops in my head and lists a bunch of reasons why I should feel shame etc...it's like my evil conscience! It happens automatically and sometimes I can shut that inner voice off but often I can't or if I do I can still hear it mumbling in the background of my thoughts. How do you combat this critical inner voice?
