Going into private practice is not the solution for some therapists who want to get away from working for an agency or the equivalent of one.
Yes, they are tired or even feeling burnout from the demands placed upon them, and being compassionate as they are, always want to show up and give their clients their best.
However, they are finding it more and more difficult to get going. Some days they wish they could just stay in bed or not see any clients.
But it's not financially feasible.
So, what do they do for a solution? Start their own private practice and then realize it comes with its own set of challenges.
This they are not ready for.
Some have humbled themselves and raise the white flag and return to what they are used to ... working for someone else.
They were not cut out to work for themselves or manage a business.
They still have an employee mindset which is not going to cut it when it comes to running a practice as a business.
They cannot be blamed because this was not something they were taught in grad school. I know, because I cannot recall one of my classes being geared towards running a business called a private practice.
In this episode, you will discover some of the other reasons why some therapists should not be in private practice because of what it takes.
