My name is Gemma and I am an imposter.

Updated: Jan 16

I have a confession.


I run workshops on imposter syndrome and I AM an imposter. There. I’ve said it.


In time gone by, I would never have been able to admit this. My imposter would be shouting “you can’t say that, that makes you EVEN more of a fraud.“


But the more we keep quiet about this subject, the more we compound the issue.

This was even more apparent at last nights workshop. The participants’ number one take away was how empowered and reassured they felt by simply sharing their experiences and learning that others have similar (if not the same) narratives as they do.


What’s more, there was a realisation that perhaps you may always have these types of feelings but that there ARE ways to quieten that imposter voice, know when it will show up and prepare accordingly.


The challenge may not be to rid yourself of the imposter completely but instead learn to get to know it and get comfortable with the discomfort.


The more we share, the more we challenge that imposter.


I run regular workshops on building confidence and overcoming imposter syndrome. You can find out more here.
