A kickstart 4 step 1:1 bespoke coaching to spot and sort confidence barriers
Have you heard of ‘impostor syndrome’? Do you have it? Is it curable? Maybe it is just a question of getting you ‘unsquashed’. We all do a bit or a lot of ‘self-squashing’ – and it holds you back and leeches joy and energy.
I mention impostor syndrome so a quick unpacking might be helpful.
What is the meaning of impostor syndrome ?
It isn’t a syndrome! It is a ‘feeling’. You might feel slightly alienated from yourself. You might feel that you are ‘getting away with it’ in your job – even when you have plenty of experience and value to offer. You might feel nothing you do is ever really ‘good enough’ even when it is! You might feel frustrated by never really being yourself. You slip into people pleasing mode and get annoyed when you do. You over prepare and feel exhausted and annoyed with yourself. You compare yourself to others and can’t help feeling they are ‘better’. However irrational these feelings are, they feel real.
My ‘self-squashing’ perspective adds another element – and it is in many ways more positive!
As I say in my book and TEDx talk – the definition of ‘self squashing’ is:
“Suppressing your true self due to a fear that revealing your full passion, personality and power will have you judged as an unlikable show off.”
You know you could nail it – but you better not!
What will you gain?
From personal and client experience I suggest you will gain some or all of these:
How does it work?
This is about YOU not someone else – so we need to find out your set of FIBs (see below). Relevant resources and notes/homework given
This is fun! We get forensic and start joining the dots – themes, triggers, drivers and lightbulbs galore. Identifying key ‘squashers’. More notes/homework
Now we ‘make it real’. As an actor I am good at taking you into different situations and playing conversations out. We spot the ‘graunchy bits’! Notes etc.
Practical time! Working on BESPOKE reframes and tools for you to use. Refresh main insights and run through action and resources.
FIBs that hold you back.
Fears – fear of rejection being the big one for us humans
Illusions – Social media fed myths and our ‘cognitive illusions’
Baggage – Well we all have that!
£500.00 total for the 4 sessions plus recordings, resources and notes. This can be paid in 2 installments of £260 (prior to session 1 and 4 weeks later).
