What is InnerAlly Again?

An InnerAlly is an inner voice that is kind, supportive and compassionate during times of struggle. How we speak to ourselves with our inner voice is the bedrock of our relationship with ourselves.

Research shows that if we can be kind and supportive of ourselves, then we are less likely to be depressed, anxious, stressed out, and engaging in unhelpful coping strategies.

The concept of an “InnerAlly” was born when I realized that I only had an inner critic, inner bully and harsh and judgmental innervoices. I knew I needed help to change the way I related to myself, and from there, I created the InnerAlly system.
