Publisher's Summary

As children, we dreamt of the wonderful things we were going to do when we were grown-ups.

Now that we’re grown-ups, why aren’t we out there, living the lives of our dreams?

This fun and original guide will teach you how to bypass your self-doubt and take ACTION.

Using her experience as a storyteller, broadcaster, and (undercover) life-coach, Clare Bowditch collaborates with neuroscientist Dr Charlotte Keating to detail useful Cognitive Behavioural Therapy concepts that will help you tame your inner critic. With practical steps and Clare’s trademark humour and intimate storytelling style, Tame Your Inner Critic will teach you the skills to retrain your brain and achieve your big, fat dreams.

Clare Bowditch is an ARIA award-winning musician, a Logie award-nominated actor, and has been named Rolling Stone Woman of the Year for her contribution to culture. In 2019 Clare Bowditch released her debut best-selling memoir, Your Own Kind of Girl, which was short-listed for Australian Audiobook of the Year, and won an ABIA for Best New Australian Writer. In 2010, Clare overcame her Gen-Xer cynicism and trained to become a life coach with a specialty in teaching big-hearted humans how to overcome their self-doubt. Since then she’s had the pleasure of sharing speaking bills with the likes of Brené Brown and Marianne Williamson, where she is best known for teaching large audiences to overcome their collective terror of public singing, and sing anyway, in three part harmony, in fifteen minutes or less.

who said this has to be serious?

Loved the silly playfulness of this podcast. Who said this has to be serious anyway? I'm learning the power of play & identifying my critics - added value! Thanks for this light hearted approach to an aspect of the psyche that I've taken far too seriously for forever.

Page turner until the end

If you like suspense, this is one for you. Just when you think you know where it's going, twists & turns. Very well narrated also.

Odd delivery but someone may enjoy.

Didn't really enjoy how it was read, it felt a bit like an odd story. However it may deliver well for someone else.

80/20

80% nonsense, 20% usable content, however, the nonsense convoluted the useful information. Between the scripted, pretend-this-isn't-scripted moments, stories that lacked a personal connection, and uncomfortably over-acted moments, I found my attention waning and having to rewind when something interesting finally arose. It missed the mark, I'm afraid.

Helpful and Entertaining!

This audiobook was really well done. It has a supportive and lighthearted way of speaking about something that can feel pretty heavy. So glad I came across this! highly recommend to anyone who wants to learn about WHY their inner critic exists and HOW to deal with it and move forward with their goals.
