8-WEEK PROGRAM TO MOVE FROM
SELF-DEFEATING THOUGHTS TO LOVING LIFE
Self-defeating thoughts or cognitive distortions, are often times a symptom of developmental trauma. This thought process happens through experiences in early childhood. It can be caused by experiencing verbal abuse, neglect or physical abuse as a child. These experiences can impact us as adults, and the good news is, when we become aware of how the trauma has impacted us, we can focus on reframing self-defeating thoughts into positive thoughts about self.
This program will focus on how your self-defeating thoughts impact your everyday life and practice skills to help you change those thoughts. We will do this by creating a safe space for you to process old thought patterns that don’t work for you anymore, and blossom into a person who finds joy and purpose in life.
