How Therapists Can Earn a Living Running a Private Practice 

There is a slight difference between making it, and making a living. The first one refers to surviving, the second is thriving.

When starting a private practice, you’d want to fall into the second category. 

There are several steps you can take to ensure your private practice is successful and supports you in earning a living. These also apply for when you have an existing practice, and want to improve it. 

Make Life Easier Using Technology

Understand how you can use software, apps and programmes efficiently to simplify the tasks not related to therapy. That could be an online scheduling service, electronic billing, or online record keeping. That way you can concentrate on the tasks that actually earn money. Do your research and save yourself time and effort in the long run.

Build-Test-Learn

Just as other startups, you need to understand what works for you and your clients. Experiment with how to do things for a couple of weeks or a month, and see the results.

Learn from the test run, tweak the processes if necessary, and then go again. 

Trust Marketing Efforts

Don’t neglect your marketing efforts. They are the channels that bring clients to your practice. Invest into them from the very start - both money and time-wise - and benefit long-term.

Stay with Your Niche

Focus on what you do best. Servicing a niche clientele will not only make your work more enjoyable, but it will make you an expert in the field.

Experts can a) charge higher amounts and b) profit from word of mouth to get more clients.
