The Ultimate Business Start-up Mentoring Programme for Therapists

A unique, comprehensive business development mentoring programme

Complementary therapies are highly sought after, now more than ever. There are no shortage of clients and there is no reason for every single therapist not to have a long and successful career doing what they love.

However, the sad truth is that many therapists do not succeed and many do not even understand why!

The reason is simple. The average therapist works really hard at their studies and learning their craft, but then does little preparation for their business. As soon as the hard-earned certificate arrives in the post, many rush and sort out business cards and their social media pages without giving a thought to setting up their business. They have no plan, no direction, no goals; they make mistakes with their pricing and some even choose the most inappropriate business names. We see it time and time again.  It is no wonder so many fail to get out of the starting blocks!

When it comes to starting up your own therapy business, however exciting the idea is, it can seem overwhelming and complicated. Chances are you have never worked for yourself before and so it truly is new territory. Working for yourself may be a dream come true, especially if you already love being a therapist, but it does require a hefty dose of business acumen and adds a myriad of new skills and responsibilities to your life. We understand just how challenging it can be to set-up in business for the first time. If you want to get it right, there is so much more to it than you realise. However, it is all achievable if you know what to do!


Programme Details

This in-depth programme will support you and provide you with everything you need to do not only to launch your own therapy business, but also to ensure your business is set up for success. We will gently lead you step-by-step through the whole process. This business mentoring programme includes everything we wish someone had offered us when we started out. Tapping into over thirty years of experience in the industry, it has been created specifically for therapists and covers in detail, every conceivable thing you could want to know when setting up your business.

For 12 months we will hold your hand and lead you step by step. We are here to guide you, support you and mentor you. Alongside all the on-line content you will receive when you enrol, we will meet via Zoom once a month to discuss your progress and address any questions. You can use your mentor as a sounding board for any ideas you have along the way. See this programme as your own personal business advisor who helps you carry our your business action plan.

Business success takes time. A lot of time. It also takes a lot of work, a lot of planning and excellent execution of a winning strategy. The good news is, the time you spend now at this stage will save you time,expense and heartache later on. You will avoid pitfalls as you will be setting up your business fully informed and with your eyes wide open!

You may already have set your practice up and are looking to revisit your planning and preparation. This programme will be as beneficial to you as it is to a newly qualified therapist.
