Self-Criticism Log


Lots of research has found that self-criticism is associated with a variety of psychological difficulties. 

But one problem with self-criticism can sometimes be that we aren’t very aware of the nature of our self-criticism, how it shows up and how it leaves us feeling

Taken from The Compassionate Mind Workbook, you can download a blank version of the log here (or look at it below), and use this as a way to learn more about your self-criticism 

If you’d like to find more ways to work with your self-critic, and learn to become more compassionate to yourself, take a look at our resources and self-help options
