Coping with Imposter Syndrome

Imposter Syndrome is the experience that many high-achieving people have of feeling a fraud, of not deserving their success, a fear of being ‘found out’, of not being as competent as other people think they are.  It is characterised by chronic self-doubt, feeling phoney, attributing success to luck or other external factors, feeling unable to live up to expectations, etc.

The best evidence is that it effects women more often than men and people from humble origins more than those from more privileged backgrounds.

In this podcast, Dr Edd Rendell, Medical Director at Wessex LMCs, speaks with John Perry, a counsellor and coach,  about tips for coping with Imposter Syndrome.
