Around 25 to 30 percent of high achievers may suffer from imposter syndrome, and around 70% of adults may experience imposter syndrome at least once in their lifetime, research suggests.
At Evolve Therapy Group, we understand the impact that imposter syndrome can have on individuals’ lives and well-being. Our specialized team of therapists is here to provide support and guidance to those struggling with imposter syndrome, helping them overcome self-doubt, cultivate self-confidence, and embrace their true capabilities.
Imposter syndrome is a psychological pattern in which individuals doubt their accomplishments and have a persistent fear of being exposed as a fraud, despite evidence of their competence. It can affect individuals from all walks of life, including high-achieving professionals, students, artists, and entrepreneurs.
At Evolve Therapy Group, we take a compassionate and evidence-based approach to help individuals overcome imposter syndrome.
