Do you set excessively high standards for yourself? Are you overly critical of your performance and abilities? Are you very afraid of failure or of making mistakes? Do you measure your self-worth in terms of your achievements?

  • Understand what perfectionism is, its consequences, and the different types of perfectionism
  • Perform a self-evaluation to explore current perfectionistic tendencies
  • Adopt strategies to challenge perfectionistic thinking and behaviours
  • Apply strategies to develop a more flexible and compassionate relationship with yourself
