About The Checklist
So many people don’t take the leap into private practice because they don’t know where to start. This checklist and its accompanying resource list tell you exactly what you need to do to get going. We get into the specifics of why each item is important, provide suggestions for free & paid resources to make your practice run smoothly, and & in some reminders about why you are totally capable of having a successful private practice.
Can I just start with a quick pep talk? Therapists are inherently good entrepreneurs. We are trained to cope with the emotions that often sideline business owners. We hold pain for a living; we see resilience every day; we connect easily & deeply. We entered this field because we care intensely about people, which makes us naturals with customer service. Our training requires clinical supervision, so we know how to admit our ignorance & ask for help from someone who knows what we need. We already have what it takes to do this, we just need direction.
BEFORE YOU SEE YOUR FIRST PRIVATE PRACTICE CLIENT MAKE SURE YOU HAVE OUR FREE TASKY, CONFIDENCE-BOOSTING CHECKLIST
I love rules. I know it’s not cool, but it’s true. It follows that I also love structure. As I was gaining confidence as a therapist it really helped to have an outline for my initial appointments. Those appointments yield the bulk of the information you draw on session after session. Being able to ask the right questions while also maintaining connection and building rapport is a skill that takes some practice. The form I created for myself makes sure I don’t miss anything important and eliminates those awkward pauses. I highly recommend creating one that fits your ideal clients.
Scripts so you sound confident & prepared A.F. 😉
