Business

Are you seen and heard? Self-employment can be lonely

We need to make sure all our clients feel seen and heard! This is one of my favourite mantras I spout it all the time at the Wellbeing Clinic. For all of us who work in the world of wellbeing whether you are a holistic therapist or a yoga teacher a large part of your work is making sure your clients feel seen and heard.

How do you do this?  You listen! A deep healing occurs when a person feels listened to I am talking about in the moment – fully present – intentional listening.

How I went from being a holistic therapist to a clinic owner

Why I stopped practicing as a holistic therapist

It has been pointed out to me that I talk a lot about how I became a reflexologist but not the transition from being a therapist to a wellbeing clinic owner.

After the birth of my first child in 2000 I worked as a reflexologist for around 5 years specialising in fertility and women’s health. I was seeing on average 20 clients a week, I also trained in other therapies because I was fascinated with everything and anything to do with holistic health largely due to the improvements it had made with my own health coupled with a desire to pass this information on to other people.

Is a scarcity and comparison mindset killing your wellbeing business?

So many of my clients believe that there is not enough business to go around. I often hear the words there are just too many yoga teachers or holistic therapists I can not compete with them all.

When I first started as a reflexologist in 2001 I also believed this to be true. I complained to my business coach about their not being enough clients to go around, he sat me down and asked me if I knew how many reflexologists there are within a 5-mile radius of my reflexology practice. My response was NO! But I know there are too many and it is just not fair.

Why your wellbeing business is like the bread isle at your local supermarket.

Why your wellbeing business is like the bread isle in your local super market.

If you are worried that there are too many holistic therapists or yoga teachers in your local and not enough clients. I want you to imagine your wellbeing business is like the bread isle in your local super market. 

What........ I hear you say.
