Perfectionism is a Plague. Are You Infected?

Perfectionism is a Plague. Are You Infected?

Our new clients usually think I’m joking.

“80% is perfect.”

I can hear the gears in their brain grinding.

“80%…” they struggle to let the full sentence escape their lips.

“…is perfect, that’s right.” I complete the statement for them if I have to.

Do You Really Need a Website for Your Therapy Practice?

Do You Really Need a Website for Your Therapy Practice?

When speaking with therapists, on occasion I hear bad advice they’ve received from other so-called “experts” or “gurus” who are trying to promote a website-less process to building a full practice.

Should You Work For A Group Or Go Solo?

Talking to over 2,500 psychotherapists and wellness professionals (none of whom are where they want to be in practice, or they wouldn’t be reaching out for help) reveals a LOT of patterns throughout the industry.

Something I’ve heard several times is the “I’m working for a group but I don’t receive enough referrals” problem.

What Can You Do About Negative Online Reviews for Your Practice?

What Can You Do About Negative Online Reviews for Your Practice?

They’re (sadly) a rite of passage.

The more successful you become, the greater the likelihood you’ll start getting them.

It only takes one person who’s having a bad day (or month, or year, or lifetime).

You don’t even have to do anything “wrong.” You can conduct yourself perfectly in every possible way…but someone is going to decide for reasons of their own to go online and defame you.

Since negative reviews are basically inevitable if you’re at all committed to growing a successful practice, the real question is: what can you do about them?

How to Avoid Being a Massive Hypocrite in Your Private Practice

One of life’s greatest dangers is:

Not walking your talk.

Talking is easy.

Walking your talk can be quite hard.

Particularly when we’re talking about ever-present practices like how to relate to one’s own thoughts and feelings, or how to communicate with other human beings, or how to navigate fears and inadequacies.

If you have any aspirations whatsoever of growing a successful private practice, learning to walk your talk and actually apply the things you preach to your clients is one of the most powerful things you can possibly do.
