The Importance of Self Talk

Self Talk impacts how we feel about ourselves, how we feel about our capabilities and how we interact with the world. It impacts our self esteem, self confidence and self image.

What is Self Talk?

We often talk to ourselves. Self Talk is this internal dialogue and it is influenced by our subconscious mind. It comprises of our thoughts, beliefs, and ideas of ourselves and our world. It’s something that we all do without realising, and yes, we do it at all ages.

So in Sequel workshops and mentoring sessions, we focus a lot on self image and inner conversations. Why? It’s because self talk is very powerful. What we tell ourselves matter and this is proven again and again through self-fulfilling prophecies.

What is Self-Fulfilling Prophecy?

Self-Fulfilling Prophecy is defined as a false definition of the situation evoking a new behavior which makes the originally false conception come true” (Merton, 1968, p. 477)

In other words, when our beliefs and expectations influence our behavior at the subconscious level, we are enacting what is known as a self-fulfilling prophecy. This means if you tell yourself you can do something and really believe in it, you might just be able to do it. Of course, it works the other way round too.

If you tell yourself, you are capable, you become capable.

If you tell yourself, you are clumsy, you will be one.

If you tell yourself, you have leadership qualities, you will.

So, choose your words to yourself carefully and choose to empower yourself.

Teen Mentoring & Family Mediation

 Teen Mentoring & Family Mediation

We specialise in teen mentoring & family mediation and we go about it gently.

We know that being a teenager is complicated. It’s especially difficult to navigate identity and role confusion in teens and pre-teens. What does role confusion mean? Watch here

We offer teens an informal & safe space to lay out their thoughts, blow off out steam and  eventually settle in to a comfortable identity space. We also address issues like self esteem, self image, peer pressure, bullying, sibling rivalry, goal setting etc.

Once they have been able to unpack who they are, where they fit in and what bothers them, they can focus their energy on things that matter. They find a way to reach their full potential. A happy teen is a highly productive teen and we have seen transformations, whether in studies, extra-curricular activities or in general attitude. We recommend 1-3 mentoring sessions for every teen or pre-teen. While our sessions are confidential, we believe in keeping the channels of communications open with parents.
