How to talk to yourself

There was a time not so long ago when having more than one voice in your head would lead to a psychiatric diagnosis. Sick of the prevailing theory that each person has one, unified mind, therapist Richard Schwartz is pioneering a different model. He says that we all have multiple “sub-minds” that are always in conversation with each other. Your job is to manage them.

Daily Check-ins

Instead of suppressing or shaming our “bad” sub-minds, Schwartz recommends a compassionate and curious approach. The self-help industry’s focus on willpower often worsens the very issues it seeks to address. Schwartz’s model advocates for a daily routine of checking in with every part of our mind. This holistic approach to mindfulness promotes wellbeing from the inside out.
