Imposter syndrome is incredibly common and most people will experience it at some point.
Imposter syndrome can show up as:
* Feelings of inadequacy
* Inability to own your success
* Career limitations
* Not reaching your full potential
* Chronic over-achievement
If you ever say any of the following then you might be experiencing imposter syndrome!
"I just got lucky"
"I was in the right place at the right time"
"It's only because they like me"
"If I can do it, anybody can"
At the start of my own career I was confident, self-assured and fearless. After securing a big promotion, I found myself in a toxic environment where I was the only woman of colour, the youngest person at my level and from a very different background to many of my peers. Imposter syndrome very quickly took hold of me and I found myself working extremely long hours and on the verge of burnout. Despite regular praise and performing to a high level, I never felt I was doing enough and I was scared that everyone would find out I didn't deserve to be there. It took some work but I overcame imposter syndrome and so can you.
It is absolutely possible for you to overcome your negative inner critic, feel great about yourself and achieve your career goals and dreams. I support individuals through a combination of Rapid Transformational Therapy (to identify the root cause of your symptoms, help you to heal, move forward and rewire your mind), Coaching (supporting you as you move towards your goals, free from what was holding you back) and DISC personality profiling (to improve your self-awareness and help you start owning your greatness).
I also work with companies to address the factors that cause imposter syndrome more prevalent within the workplace. Much of this work falls under DEI initiatives and I am an advocate for people in marginalised groups.
You deserve to be successful and to fully enjoy your success! If imposter syndrome is holding you back, please feel free to book a consultation. If nothing else, just know that you are not alone and you can totally overcome everything that is holding you back.
