Mentoring

Are you a new therapist who is looking for a job?

Are you ready to have your own business but unsure how to be successful?

Do you have your own business but it isn’t as successful as you had envisioned?

Are you feeling like the business owns you and you are lost in the process?

Are you an established therapist but unsure how to navigate the changing times with the new virus?

How would it feel to:
  • Have a long term career doing what you love without injury to yourself?
  • Do the work you are passionate about?
  • Remove obstacles that continually get in the way of success?
  • Attract the people you most desire to work with?
  • Have a sounding board to help you sort through choices and find ease in making decisions?
  • Make your own self-care a priority and prevent or heal from burnout?
  • Feel as safe and confident as possible during the uncertain times of pandemic?

A massage coach and mentor can help you with all these things. You are not the first massage therapist to struggle with decisions, 

A massage coach and mentor can help you with all these things. You are not the first massage therapist to struggle with decisions, new concepts, or a feeling of overwhelm resulting from frequent change and opportunities in the profession. Mentors can be there to offer wisdom, encouragement and advice. Mentors are not critics, but rather offer a source of constructive advice.

Mentoring is a sustained relationship between an experienced person and a less—experienced person which provides guidance, instruction and support. Mentoring can help find direction in every day decisions, such as what CE class to take, how to modify a resumé or talk to a job supervisor, to how to market the business. Having a sounding board with more experience and resources to guide you can shine a light on opportunities and challenges and help find direction and solutions. A mentor is not a parent, professional counselor, or financial adviser. They are a Guide, Friend and Supporter.

Coaching/Mentoring clients typically fall in one of 6 categories:

  1. Job Hunting
  2. Fledgling Business Owner - the therapist looking to start their own practice
  3. Practice Expansion - the therapist who wants to grow their practice
  4. Teacher - the therapist who wants to teach
  5. Treatment Plan Development - the therapist who wants to work with specific clients condition
  6. Safe Space Creation - the therapist that is unsure what is needed to create a safe treatment space
