You may have been running a private therapy practice or coaching business for some time, working to grow your private practice to its next level. Or you may be taking your first steps to build your independent private practice on a full- or part-time basis, starting out with your new business. Either way, inevitably, you will face challenges marketing your business.
How you handle these challenges can make a huge difference to the success or otherwise of your private practice.
Being prepared and proactive, able to recognise what needs to be done to build your business and to reflect thoughtfully on your efforts so far, will see you moving your business forward, towards the success to which you aspire.
The fact is, however, that though we may think that we know what needs to be done, often, other things just get in our way. We get distracted, diverted or overwhelmed, and before you know it, time has passed, and we are no further forward.
Or we feel, for any number of reasons, that we are stagnating with our business or struggling to implement the changes that we know will make a difference to growing our coaching business or therapy practice, but we can't seem to find a way past these obstacles.
For others, it is often a fear of the unknown: just how do you start a business?
"Colin has been an inspiration to me, from my first tentative steps (into private practice), he has guided me all the way. He was the voice that said "you can do it" when I couldn't hear my own inner voice".
"Answered all my questions + some I hadn't thought of!"
Unfortunately, our training as psychologists, counsellors, coaches or psychotherapists (in the UK certainly, but elsewhere too), generally does not address the demands of starting a business or running a private practice, and so making that transition from an employed post into self-employment can feel too daunting. I mean, where are you supposed to start?
This is where a supportive, professional coach can make the difference. Working with someone who can guide you step-by-step as you set up your business; someone who can help you get (and stay) focused on what you can do to get started or to grow your business. Someone who can offer that extra something and who can help you bridge the gap between the here and now and where it is that you want to take your business.
At Mirror Coaching, my responsibility is to YOU and Your Business: to help you to recognise what you can achieve in your psychotherapy practice or your coaching business, and see the successful independent practitioner that you truly can be! I'll work with you to identify the goals you want to work towards in your business, offer lots of tips and guidance, and then support you as you take the action that will move you towards that new future.
Why should you consider working with me?
Because I've done what you're looking to do; I've created a busy, and profitable, therapy and coaching practice that allows me the freedom to work with who I want to, when I want to. And now I want to share that knowledge with you.
For over 6 years, I've been coaching people just like you, who need help setting up in business or growing their practices, running workshops, working 1:1 and online, with the explicit goal of helping my clients create their ideal private practice. I've got nearly 20 years experience as a clinical psychologist too, almost half of that time in full-time private practice, and I'm making that experience available to you, so you can do it too, sooner rather than later.
Does that sound like what you are looking for? Well then, maybe we need to talk. I invite you to click through on this link or on the Call Me link on the bottom of the page to arrange a Free Initial Coaching Consultation with me to discuss what you want to do and how I might help you to achieve that.
I look forward to being a part of your future success ...
