Break Through Imposter Syndrome and Build Your Private Practice

You are not an imposter, so why do you have imposter syndrome? 

This is one of the main things that stops SLPs from starting and growing private practices.

I am talking all about this in today’s episode and giving you some strategies to break through it!

You’ll learn what impostor syndrome is, why SLPs are so susceptible to it and most importantly, how to finally shake it off. 

In Today’s Episode, We Discuss:

  • What imposter syndrome is
  • Questions you might ask yourself if you struggle with imposter syndrome
  • Why you need to start taking your own advice
  • The importance of recognizing that you’re enough
  • How imposter syndrome manifests in relation to starting private practices
  • What you need to do to get over these feelings

Remember, you are not an imposter, you are a helper.

Don’t wait to become an expert to start your private practice or you’ll never start. Start now and become an expert as you grow your private practice.
