Would you like to: Make more money in your private practice? Attract more ideal clients? Generate a flow of quality referrals? Revitalize your existing practice? Have increased confidence as a business owner?
In this book, psychotherapist and business coach Lynn Grodzki acts as your personal business coach and shows you how to build an ideal private practice—one that is both highly profitable and personally satisfying.
Today, being a talented professional is not enough to ensure the success of your private practice; you also need to be an enthusiastic, talented businessperson. Grodzki's business strategies are effective and immediately useful for a wide range of private practitioners, including social workers, psychologists, psychiatrists, massage therapists, energy healers, life coaches, and chiropractors.
Whether you are just starting out as an independent practitioner or looking to revitalize an existing practice, Building Your Ideal Private Practice provides a foundation for business and personal growth that will lead you to a new level of personal and financial enrichment. Presenting innovative business concepts in a format specifically adapted for the therapeutic profession, this book guides professionals at all stages of their careers.

Editorial Reviews

The Neuropsychotherapist
“I found Building Your Ideal Private Practice an inspiring, relevant, intelligent, and practical resource that had me excited about what I can do with my own private practice. . . . Unlike some other ‘set up your business’ books I have read, this guide speaks to therapists in their own language . . . . I would like to see this as compulsory reading for every graduating professional in our field—helping new clinicians avoid unnecessary confusion, pain, and even financial loss through the recognition that they are as much business people as they are healing professionals.”
