Imposter Syndrome – BVNA

It was an absolute pleasure to speak to you at the BVNA Congress, and thank you to BVNA for making a donation to Anxiety UK.

I didn't get the chance to meet you all personally, so if there are any issues or questions you would like to discuss which have been prompted by my talk please do feel free to contact me. You can reach me at kate@kateatkin.com or 07779 646976.

On this webpage you will find some extra information on the imposter syndrome (really a phenomenon) which is based on my own research and that of other experts, and some extra useful links, plus suggestions for TED talks and further reading.

We are still at an early stage in understanding the impact of the Imposter Phenomenon, my interest is in understanding the most effective ways of managing those imposter feelings and passing on this information to others. As I mentioned, I have started my PhD research on this topic. If you are interested in keeping up to date with my research findings and musings on the topic, do sign up to receive my newsletter.


Here's a link to the most recent research on IP in the workplace by TotalJobs, in collaboration with yours truly and my PhD supervisor Dr Terri Simpkin: TotalJobs Survey.

On the video page of this website you'll find a panel discussion on the imposter syndrome with Circle Co. which provides an interesting insight into the imposter at work from the panel, and one between myself and Louise Lloyd on The Inspired Zone podcast. I also add blogs to the site, so do take a look around.
