At what point is self-talk a problem?

15 June 2016 9:20 PM

Clinical Psychologist Kgamadi Kometsi chats to Gugs and Sizwe about talking out loud to yourself and some of the warning signs you should look out for if it is a symptom of mental illness.

We often talk to ourselves out loud or silently, but what at point does it become a symptom of mental illness?

Clinical Psychologist Kgamadi Kometsi says talking to yourself can prove to be healthy but is problematic when it becomes a substitute for real life interaction.

"Whether we express it overtly or not, there is a thinking that is going on in our heads all the time, some people verbalize it, some do not. When you over do it then it becomes a problem."
