The Cure for Perfectionism Workshop
How to break the cycle of ‘when is ‘perfect’, perfect enough’?
Perfectionism is not about excellence or healthy development but a rather sophisticated cognitive and behavioural mechanism (including a series of false autosuggestions) that internally sounds something like this: ‘if I deliver at 100% all the time and if I look perfect all the time and if I achieve 100% academically all the time, I shall no longer feel ashamed, embarrassed and will no longer be judged for underperforming – everyone will love and accept me then’.
Therapists and the process of therapy often run into a struggle with the perfectionistic tendencies of the client. This workshop navigates you through the presenting issues to the underlying factors that maintain perfectionism.
