Banishing Imposter Syndrome
Online group coaching for doctors
Who is this group coaching course for?
This group coaching is a professional development course for doctors struggling with lack of confidence and imposter syndrome at work.
This is a common issue underlying the reasons doctors are considering leaving clinical medicine, and is a particular concern for doctors returning to work after maternity or other leave. I find after a number of coaching sessions targeted to imposter syndrome most people end up finding new energy and excitement for clinical work. I’ve had people go from ‘I can’t work as a clinician any more – help me get out and find something else to do” to “I can do this – in fact I’m quite excited”.
Using the power of sharing and group learning, this group coaching course is designed to help you manage imposter syndrome and improve your confidence at work.

To ensure you get the most out of this course there will be a balance between structure and co-design.
Since managing imposter syndrome involves a mindset change, it’s more important to facilitate discussions that promote this than covering particular topics.Therefore, each session will be structured around a particular topic, but the way we get there will be determined by your needs, insights and questions. Each week we will crowd source ‘fun’ homework that you agree to as a group. Part of each session the following week will involve sharing your experiences so please come prepared.
