Podcast #44: Overcoming Impostor Syndrome

Ever suffer from “Impostor Syndrome”?

You know, that feeling that you aren’t really qualified to do the work you want to do, and that you might get “found out” at any moment?

Impostor syndrome can sneak up on therapists when they are first starting out, but that’s not the only time. Any time you decide to uplevel your life or your practice, you’re bound to develop at least a mild case of impostor syndrome.

It certainly caught up with Felice Martin when she decided to get serious about growing her practice. Felice’s biggest challenge was creating the mindset she needed to succeed.

Felice learned how to trust in herself and realized that she has gifts she’s meant to share with the world. Acknowledging this made all the difference.

Biggest takeaways you don’t want to miss:

  • How your mindset has a direct impact on the success of your practice, and tools to help create the right mindset for success.
  • Felice explains how she views marketing as a rapport-building process from the very first point of contact with a client, and how therapists can use their rapport-building skills as a marketing resource.
  • Felice’s top 3 marketing strategies, including the one that made the biggest difference for her.
