Do you sometimes feel like a fraud?

Imposter syndrome is a common issue affecting many medical professionals, yet it isn’t openly discussed. Despite being highly skilled with years of experience, and even receiving many awards and recognition, doctors have a persistent fear of being exposed as a fraud.

A previous client I worked with experienced imposter syndrome:

Lucy* is a highly capable and skilled doctor but lacks the confidence to apply for career opportunities. While most superiors were supportive, there was one manager blocking her progression by influencing the outcome of a consultant role she applied for. This left Lucy uncertain about her future in medicine. Self-doubt took hold and she felt she wasn’t deserving of a consultant role.

Lucy heard about my services and engaged my help to develop a plan to achieve her goals, several of which she accomplished within 6 months.
