Overcome With Self-Doubt? Consider Counseling

If your mind keeps scrolling with negative thought processes and you’re plagued with self-doubt, you’re not alone. Self-doubt — defined as confusion about your accomplishments, abilities, and competence — is normal and quite common.

It’s also one of the top reasons people in Denver, Colorado, seek self-improvement counseling from dedicated psychologist Andrea Liner, PsyD, at Flux Psychology.

Signs of self-doubt

Some telltale signs that you’re struggling with self-doubt are:

In addition, you may have chronically low self-esteem.

Forms of self-doubt

There are a few well-known ways self-doubt plays out in the minds of those it affects.

Self-fulfilling prophecy

When you repeatedly talk down to yourself and say that you’re not capable of accomplishing something, your negative loop of words come true.

Imposter syndrome

Self-doubt and imposter syndrome go hand-in-hand because they’re rooted in feelings that you are a fraud — no matter how successful you are — and that anything you’ve achieved has been happenstance or luck.


Self-doubt can manifest as self-sabotage when you undermine success by acting in opposition of your goals, such as purposely eating things that derail your weight loss goal, procrastinating frequently and missing deadlines, or not studying for a test because you’re afraid you won’t pass it.
