Here's a tip on how you can help many more people in the new year

December 21st, 2009
I know if you are a therapist then your goal is to help many people heal their lives and discover their potential. I also know most therapists want to help many more clients than they are currently seeing, but often just don’t know how to.
I’m happily planning for the upcoming year and realized that there is something therapists should consider to ensure the year is a successful one, something they can borrow from the business model. It wasn’t until recently that I understood the power of strategic planning, mapping out what the year would look like. My income started to dramatically change when I shifted from 1:1 hourly sessions, in which there is little control over the number of client seen, to a model that supported not only my business, but my client’s long-term growth and development!
So here’s a quick tip worth its weigh in gold. Start to map out how you can leverage your gifts as a therapist to help many more people this year. No, you cannot control the economy, and you cannot control who comes to your therapy practice, but you can control how you develop supportive streams of income, so you never encounter “dry periods” when you’re struggling to find clients. Here are some questions for you to get you thinking about how to help many more people:
  • What gifts do you have?
  • What results do you help your clients achieve?
  • List all the different ways you could offer your gifts outside of 1:1 therapy sessions, and help your clients achieve the benefits that they get from working with you!
  • Now start to fill your calender. So regardless of the number of 1:1 clients you currently have, you’ll have long-term sustainable income, and you will help many more people in the upcoming year.
This brainstorming session will help you see the possibilities of all the different ways you can leverage your gifts, and help many more people!
