  • Women's Mental Health: Exploring Self Doubt and Imposter Syndrome

    Monday 8 March 16.15 - 17.15

    Women's Mental Health: Exploring Self Doubt and Imposter Syndrome

    Most women juggle many roles in life: Professional roles, family roles and personal roles. It can sometimes be challenging to balance these different roles without experiencing exhaustion, guilt and self-doubt – all of which contribute to psychological wellbeing.

    We also know that women often have a greater risk of experiencing imposter syndrome, the fear of being ‘found out’ or being exposed as a ‘fraud’ regardless of their seniority in the workplace is often cited as the key contributor for lack of confidence.  This session, is led by a female clinical psychologist, and aims to explore some of the challenges facing women in the workplace:

    • Help you develop strategies to increase self-confidence and manage self-doubt
    • Share practical solutions to achieving a better work life balance
    • Suggest how to implement a ‘self care toolkit’ in to daily life

    Part of our International Women’s Day celebrations. All are welcome to attend this session. Register here
