Imposter Syndrome

Imposter Syndrome is a term used to describe the psychological phenomenon experienced by many people, when self-doubt and insecurities intensify to the point where they feel like ‘fakes’.

Despite their often outstanding academic and professional accomplishments, people experiencing Imposter Syndrome persist in believing that they are inadequate and inept. They are convinced that they have tricked their employers and that they don’t deserve their job. They may also believe that they are not ‘good enough’ or are undeserving in other areas of their life, such as within personal relationships. They suffer with the deep, internalised fear of being exposed as a ‘fraud’.
