How to make friends with your imposter

What exactly is imposter syndrome? Who is most likely to suffer from it and why? How does it impact behaviour? And what do you DO about it?

Well, first we make sense of it in CBS terms. Is this a special variety of fusion?  Nope, but it sure is powerful. Even those of use who have expertise in mindfulness based therapies can get hooked by imposter syndrome.

So, with this in mind let’s explore how we fight with it (or just let it call the shots) and how that works. And let’s discuss alternatives to struggling with it that might help us stay on track with what we care about.
