This Self-Paced Course focuses on encountering the sources of our internalized critical voices and confronting them. These can be events from childhood, people in our lives, or beliefs we have about the world. In confronting them we will practice chair-work (parts-work) on each voice, and use Schema Repatterning Meditation (SRM) as a way to take our power back.
SRM, the main technique that we’ll use, is influenced by Jeffrey Young’s Schema Therapy approach, Dan Brown and David Elliot’s Ideal Parent Figure Protocol (IPF), and Bruce Ecker’s Schema Therapy, Laurel Hulley, and Robin Ticic’s Coherence Therapy.
According to Jeffery Young “An early maladaptive schema is a pervasive self-defeating or dysfunctional theme or pattern of memories, emotions, and physical sensations, developed during childhood or adolescence and elaborated throughout one’s lifetime, that often has the form of a belief about the self or the world.” Jeffrey Young also calls the schemas “life traps”.
Ideal Parent Figure Protocol (IPF)
Ideal Parent Figure Protocol, developed by Dan Brown, is a visualization technique that has been found to be effective for moving people with insecure attachment to secure attachment after repeated sessions.
Giving voice to parts of ourselves and entering into dialogue with them.
Coherence Therapy views psychological symptoms as coherently produced based on a person’s view of the world.
We’ll do guided meditations that address the three types of critical voice:
- Demanding Parent
- Punitive Parent
- Guilt-inducing Parent
These will include:
- Chairwork on demanding parent voice
- SRM on demanding parent voice
- Chairwork on guilt-inducting parent voice
- SRM on guilt-inducting parent voice
- Chairwork on punitive parent voice
- SRM on punitive parent voice

Frequently Asked Questions
This self-paced course invites you to find and confront the situations and people used by your own inner critic. These can manifest as demanding parent, punitive parent, and guilt-inducing parent voices. The intended outcome is to have freedom from introjects (negative attitudes of others that we unconsciously adopt).
These can be events from childhood, people in our lives, or beliefs we have about the world. In confronting them we will practice chair-work (parts-work) on each voice, and use Schema Repatterning Meditation (SRM) as a way to take our power back.
This program is for you if you want to work on your:
- negative self-talk
- ability to stay grounded when experiencing inner criticism
- understanding and compassion for psychological problems and vulnerabilities that affect you and others
- exploration and self development, relationships and emotional regulation
- understanding the early foundations of our psychological development
