Private Practice Journeys
About This Show
Four therapists discuss their experiences of what it's like to start and manage a private practice over the course of a year. Each therapist is interviewed once a month to find out what it’s really like to be in private practice – basically the nuts and bolts, highs and lows and lessons learned. By only having four therapists participate on podcast episodes listeners get “depth” of practical information as opposed to “breadth” of information, which is typical of other podcast series in which a different therapist is interviewed each week. Listeners are provided with "nitty-gritty" details and a realistic understanding of what it’s like to start and manage a practice. The Private Practice Journeys Community (on Facebook) gives listeners opportunities to discuss issues that are addressed on the podcast as well as private practice issues that are of interest to them (https://www.facebook.com/groups/704499516382080/). Sign up and join the discussions! : )

Take a look at how many sessions you would have to complete each month in order to pay a virtual assistant or someone else who is helping you with administrative tasks; it's probably not that much. This will give you the opportunity to do things that you truly enjoy – working with clients!
