medicare rebates for counsellingIn this podcast, I talk about how you can build a profitable counselling practice without offering Medicare rebates.

I share 5 lessons that I learned about how to build a thriving private practice without offering Medicare rebates or health fund rebates.

This podcast was inspired by an article I wrote called : 5 Lessons in How to Create a Profitable Private Practice Without Medicare Rebates, which stirred up quite a response.

Many therapists I speak to don’t want to be part of the Better Access Scheme because they are not interested in working from a model of brief therapy, as well as manage all the paperwork and admin that goes with the Better Access Scheme.

The 5 lessons I learned are:

  1. You need to choose a niche for marketing purposes and have a solid marketing plan
  2. Creating a profitable private practice is hard work. Really hard.
  3. You must take consistent action every single week to make progress
  4. You must invest in your counselling business to make money
  5. Marketing is not a one-time event- it’s for the life of your business
