There are two HUGE ways I see Start With Why applying to life in private practice:
1. If you are clear about your why clients will connect with that authenticity.
The bottom line is, the clearer you can be about your purpose, and the clearer you are in communicating that purpose to clients the more they will be attracted to your work.
2. If you are clear about your why you can also be clear about who you can't help (and you can refer those folks to therapists who are a better fit)
If you know who you are- it becomes clearer who you aren't. It is unethical to tell clients you can support them if you truly cannot. Be clear and connect them to someone who has the right fit. There are plenty of clients out there searching for all of us.
If you want help getting clear on the WHO associated with your WHY I made a free mini e-course that has helped hundreds of therapists get clear on who they might serve best. Click the image below for more information.
