  • 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.

A curious introduction to extreme self-doubt

I started listening to this audiobook because of friend who has a very loud inner critic and I wanted to help him out. I learnt this is more common than I knew and some techniques to work with. The author is funny, although it took me a couple of minutes to get used to her style, and her voice is full of happiness and understanding. The first 3 chapters are the strongest, but the whole series has been enlightening.

I laughed, teared up, loved it

I loved the interactive, conversational nature of the episodes. Some pretty intense emotional stuff but made enjoyable with the fun music. I hope there's another series in the making 😁

Heartily Recommended

I loved this. I found the radio DJ humour undermined the rest of the content which is a shame because Clare is genuinely funny otherwise. I still heartily recommend this series 😁

Absolutely loved it!

This was a very entertaining, informative and useful series. The format is fun and easy to follow. The chatty style and Clare's comforting voice explaining the techniques from a very personal point of view, coupled with the brilliant 'brain science' explanations, make it a very worthwhile listen.

Utter torture!

I downloaded this as I’d read an interview with one of the authors , yeeh gods. The reality of hearing the , what sounds like a comedy show mixed with hilarity / self help awareness, is so confusing , incongruous and ridiculous.
Completely negates any wisdom that might be in the book. Impossible to take it seriously or listen to.

An informative & insightful listen. Overperformed at times made it a bit annoying/ cringe worthy at points.

Really loved these small but fun chapters, wonderfully put together using comedy and music. Very helpful information delivered in an excellent manner which really sinks in.
