    #8: Overcoming Limiting Beliefs In Private Practice

    Limiting beliefs are one of the most common reasons personal brands fail or struggle to grow. When deciding on the next steps in growing your brand, you need to explore whether there are any limiting beliefs holding you back. And, if you’re like me, you might experience a period of denial of your limiting beliefs before the growth really starts to happen! 
    In this episode, I talk about two of the major limiting beliefs in Private Practice that I struggled with myself. I also discuss some of the most common limiting beliefs in private practice and how you can overcome them.

    #5: 6 (Legal) Considerations for Therapists Who Coach

    #5: 6 (Legal) Considerations for Therapists Who Coach

    There is much discussion about whether therapists should offer coaching services and the legal implications of doing so. This episode explores the 'why' behind some of advice you commonly hear for therapists who are considering moving into coaching. The discussion includes:

    1. Getting Clear on the Distinction Between Coaching & Therapy. While there are some distinctions, there is also significant overlap. We talk about how clear you need to be on this distinction.

    2. Do I Need a Separate Business Entity to Coach? Possibly. We talk about the reasoning behind having a separate business entity and why the answer to this question may differ from state to state or practice to practice.

    3. Do I Need a Separate Website? The answer may not be surprising, but the reasoning may be.

    4. What Credentials Can I Use? A common question is how you can explain your education and experience--especially in marketing. We talk about the big 'no-no' and how you can convey your expertise instead. 

    5. What Documents Do I Need? We talk about the primary document you need to make sure you have with each and every coaching client before you begin providing services.

    6. What Do My Clients Need to Know? We discuss what information you and your clients should be clear on regarding the distinction between therapy and coaching.
