How to build a successful private practice
25th January @ 09:15 - 16:00 GMTGBP145
Why take this course:
Whether you’re starting out in private practice, or have been in business for a while, this new course will help you build the practice and lifestyle you want – it will also SAVE you time and money…
Although word of mouth is one of the best ways to get business, being a good counsellor or therapist isn’t always enough to fill your practice with clients – and that’s where the easy-to-learn, simple but effective business and marketing skills you will learn on this course come in.
Jennifer Broadley has been a qualified and practising Human Givens Therapist for 8 years and has been in business for herself for over 20 years. She brings her extensive knowledge of the personal and professional ups and downs of that to life in this practical and motivating day.
You will also gain a wealth of time-saving devices and tips that others who have successfully built their thriving practices have used, all of which will allow you to focus more on your clients.
Jennifer built her business, Healthy Chat, from no clients to full practice within 2 years. She has tried-and-tested marketing strategies and will share with you the ones that have worked for her and the ones that haven’t. She is fully transparent with her client numbers, systems and finances so that you will leave the course clear about whether a full-time or part-time therapy practice is for you – and how to go about getting the work/life balance you want.
