Does this sound familiar? “You don’t know enough.” “It is only a matter of time until they find you out.” “You don’t know what you’re doing.” “You’ll never be as good as her/him/them.” “It was pure luck!” “You don’t deserve this.”

This ugly voice is the saboteur inside your head. The one that fuels our Imposter Syndrome. The sad truth is that nearly EVERYONE has this voice in their heads. The even sadder truth is that we still believe it is only us. Don’t believe the hype! After this session, you will be able to better identify what is really imposter syndrome and learn ways to build your confidence, validate your efforts, and finally believe in yourself.
