The Inner Critic

Do you have experiences and feelings of ...

  • Emotions

    Constantly Stressed, Wear a Mask, Harder on Yourself than Others, Need everything done perfectly and can't sleep at night, can't shut your mind down and rest. You feel like you have to be alert to everyones motivations to keep everything under control and safe.

  • Relationships

    Every day your intentions are to make today a good day but the cycle of repetition happens, again. The same thing happens the same way and your response is the same. You desire to be closer in your relationships but struggle to find the common ground, to be heard, to be loved.

  • Health

    Everything from increasing severe migraines, body pain, constant ill health, tiredness, feeling run down, defeated and wondering when the cycle will end. I certainly experienced getting back on my feet only to fall ill again and it was incredibly frustrating.

Breaking the Inner Critic Cycle

I think I wanted to cry the first time I heard the words Inner Critic. Nothing so precisely described what was happening inside of me and the impact the emotional flashbacks kept having on my daily life. I've battled ill health for many years. However, being prepared to do this work has helped me break the unrelenting cycle of self criticism, self abandonment, and emotional flashbacks that were crippling. I hadn't had an emotional flashback for a very, very long time until recently. They're so painful. The good news was I was able to not stay crippled by it all day. This work is vital for us to break the cycle of the inner critic and reclaim our beautiful, heart full of love self.
For me, there was nothing like the experience of Motherhood to bring out the ever increasing impact of the Inner Critic. Being able to relax and enjoy motherhood was something that didn't happen enough for me. Trying to organise 3 kids on the spectrum who all had different thought processes, manage their differing social needs, different food needs and more brought my inner critic out in full force. And that's just not how motherhood, or life, should have to be done. On Survival Mode. I wish I knew this information when my kids were little as I would have been able to do this work as they grew. However, it's been priceless as an adult to do this work because my adult kids have come along on the journey as I honestly let them know what was happening and they have willingly helped with feedback too. My daughter has helped enormously as she tells me when I don't need to be speaking to myself so harshly. We need people who can be gentle with us and let us know we can be gentle with us too. This work has helped me to have relationships where I turned towards people, not away from them.

Healing Warriors are not born or made, they choose to consciously break the cycle of generations of trauma.

“As long as you keep secrets and suppress information, you are fundamentally at war with yourself…The critical issue is allowing yourself to know what you know. That takes an enormous amount of courage.”― Bessel A. van der Kolk

Linda I have to tell you I have been in Complex PTSD therapy and an intensive therapy like hospital IOP which in the States is intensive outpatient. I always refuse to go inpatient because my colleagues would know I was there as I was a high level nurse in the hospital and everyone knew me. When I was working and everything was hidden away in my brain from my childhood I was making way over six figures and I spent over $20,000 out of pocket back then trying to get the best help I could but it didn't work. That was in addition to my insurance which was high level. I have been in therapy for over 20 years and I have to tell you...you are the first person who has given me hope... For a normal life and being triggered is not the end of the world. I wanted to thank you for all you do. I am so blessed to have met you because you've really helped me. I am slowly becoming the person I always hoped I could be. Much love and heartfelt appreciation. - Danielle Morrison RN PHD

Bessel Van Der Kolk

The Body Keeps the Score

"Traumatized people chronically feel unsafe inside their bodies: The past is alive in the form of gnawing interior discomfort. Their bodies are constantly bombarded by visceral warning signs, and, in an attempt to control these processes they often become expert in ignoring their gut feelings and in ignoring what is played out inside. They learn to hide from their selves."
Before I met Linda my life was at such a low point. I didn't know where to turn or what to do. I had tried Therapists and it was like being on a Merry-Go-Round. Nothing was changing so I refused to go anymore. I was on a wait list for DBT but my Mum found Linda and after working with her my life is now happy, bright and I enjoy every day. I went from being anxious and depressed alone at home, to joining a local choir, joining the St. John Ambulance to train for helping at Concerts, being able to help my mum at home and best of all I now have a beautiful relationship.

Linda Meredith

Certified Trauma Recovery Coach/Counsellor

Have you ever wondered how the bad things that happened in your childhood changed you and continue to impact your life? Like you, I had the bad things happen in my childhood and they turned my adulthood into a train wreck, repeatedly. More than anything I wanted to be free of Complex Ptsd and to have the life I believed I was designed to live. Dr. Bessel Van Der Kolk says it this way "Trauma affects the entire human organism—body, mind, and brain. In (c)PTSD the body continues to defend against a threat that belongs to the past." For me the question then became how do I get off this defence system? Lots of practical experience, lots of years of study, and I'm winning the defence system battle. No longer do I suffer from crippling anxiety that came with mini epileptic seizures, no longer does depression rule my life, and the journey to breaking free means I know intimately what will work and what won't work. I know who I am, why I am here, and where I'm headed. None of which was possible prior to doing the work. If you're ready I can now teach you and fully equip you to break free more time and cost effectively and more importantly more permanently than spending decades talking in a therapists office. #togetherwecan

Reviews are from genuine clients who have asked for their identities to remain private. Until we can speak openly about Mental Health with our family, friends and work colleagues, I respect the need for confidentiality.

“Today I got triggered. AND, thanks to Linda Meredith's amazing course I was able to get a huge understanding of what I'm going through and deal with it so that my negative feelings don't linger much longer. This awareness is priceless. She is a solid coach and I highly recommend her courses and one on one coaching to whoever wants to deal with their challenge. Truly, thank you Linda.”

“Yours is an entirely new concept specifically designed for CPtsd. It also shows me logically how I am the master of my life. That I have the power to create my own road map of recovery to remission. The process is structured and manageable. It gives me strength and confidence knowing I am the master of my life. Thank you for choosing to share all that you do and are with us.”

“I've learned more from 25 minutes of this woman than all the years of therapy that I've had combined, since diagnosis. I went through a 6 week program on PTSD, did nothing. No, that's not true, it confused me even more. Made it worse in a way. I am obsessed enough about my recovery that I was able to maintain my attention until the end and understand what you were saying! (I also suffer ADHD). I have no doubts my recovery will be going a lot faster now because of you! I've saved your video and plan to watch it a few more times. Your analogies were perfect in explanation, for me. So, thank you again."”

B.L. Tennessee, U.S.

“I just thought there was no hope for me. For the first time I have some hope because of your courses. I'm so grateful I found you because I've had Complex Ptsd for over 30 years. I'm in the medical field and over 30 years of therapy has not helped. I find your methodology helping me more than anything I've ever tried, so thank you!”

“When I got triggered during an intensive workout with my trainer, I told him I can't breath deeply and he was skeptical. He said it's normal and it's hard to breath because of the exercise. One true true thing about it that I learned from Linda Meredith's Depression course Is that Complex PTSD is often mistaken with other symptoms or mental issues like bipolar, ADD etc... Eventually he had to accept it because I was calmly insisting after all breath shortness has passed. I will do the same with my family and friends. Guys, I am just so grateful I have the tools now and that's all that matters. Now I wake up with energy and a clear mind. I have the tools to deal with it. When triggered, I can take action and that's priceless! Linda, I can't thank you enough. ”
