Challenging Negative Thinking: Podcast 026

This podcast is the narrated version of my article Why Affirmations and Compliments Don’t Boost Low Self Esteem.

Working with low self esteem is much easier when you understand how it is warping your client’s thinking style. Once you see how emotional conditioning is driving negative thinking, it becomes much easier to help your client stop the negative thoughts at the source.

In this episode I talk about:

  • The dangers of arguing with strong beliefs
  • How to agree – and then disagree
  • Using metaphor to bypass conscious argument
  • Reframing negatives as positives – but carefully!
