Frequently Asked Questions

Below is a list of the most common questions my clients ask, if you are unable to find an answer to your query just drop me a message and I will respond to you directly.

What is Imposter Syndrome?

Whether you have heard the term Imposter Syndrome before or not, it doesn’t really matter. I use this term to help clarify and connect a collection of feelings and thoughts being experienced by an individual with a consequential course of action.

It’s a label – and sometimes and unhelpful one – but some of you will be familiar with the term and identify with it already.

So, what is it?

  • Ever had that nagging and persistent inability to accept your own success as being deserved?
  • Ever find yourself making excuses for your success – belittling your efforts?
  • Ever use the phrase – ‘I got lucky’?
  • Ever have the constant feeling of dread (particularly but not exclusively around work) – and often being unable to quantify why?
  • Do you have big ambitions and drive but constantly doubt your ability to follow it through?
  • Do you worry about being caught out as a fraud – just pretending to know what you’re doing?

If you resonate with any of these statements then that’s ‘Imposter Syndrome’ (aka imposter phenomenon, imposterism, fraud syndrome or the imposter experience).

The great news is that the fear associated with Imposter Syndrome can in itself be a great asset and tool.

My role is to work with you to understand it, uncover the drivers, work through any trauma associated with the issues (which you may or may not be aware of at this stage) and harness the feelings and use them to your advantage – unlocking your full potential.

What is NLP?

Neuro Linguistic Programming is the basis of the coaching that I use with clients.  It’s so important to my methodology that I’ve dedicated a whole section to it on the website. Click here to visit the NLP page.
