Imposter Syndrome – info for NHS

Thank you for attending my workshop; I truly hope that you enjoyed it and found the discussions useful.

If there are any issues or questions you would like to discuss which have been prompted by the workshop please do contact me. You can reach me at kate@kateatkin.com or 07779 646976.

On this webpage you will find some extra information based on my own research and that of other experts together with other useful information relating to the topic.

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.
