How Gill can help you grow a business you’ll love
Running your own business can sometimes feel like a tough and lonely experience. But with expert advice and support, it can blossom into a rich and satisfying lifestyle. Who better to help you shape and grow your business, than a naturopath who has been mentoring practitioner for more than two decades and been in continuous practice herself for over 27 years?
Getting more clients through the door is only the beginning of the mentoring process. Many clinicians fail to thrive due to inadequate business skills, clinical competence, confidence or self-care. All four aspects are vital to create an authentic business you love.
How do you shine in such a competitive market and attract the clients that you really want to work with? Once you find your ideal client, how can you best serve them and forge a lifelong relationship?
Generic marketing advice doesn’t work in the long run for many practitioners. What’s truly important is to find an authentic way to share your story and work in alignment with your values, so the clients you want to attract will find you.
As one of the most experienced naturopaths and mentors in Australia, Gill knows that practitioners need an individual approach to thrive in a complementary health care business. It’s also an advantage to work with a mentor who remains in clinical practice. Who better to understand the evolving complexities of practitioner life?
Gill demystifies marketing, creating strategies that align with your personal values and goals. She can help you discover your authentic practice style, and identify the blocks that are stopping you grow a successful business and live a balanced life.
Whether you’re an emerging practitioner or have been in the profession for decades, Gill can help you create or reshape a sustainable and enjoyable business.
I have known of Gill Stannard for decades, a stalwart of the naturopathic profession. Recently I took the opportunity to be mentored by Gill. I was blown away by the session. Over the years I have wasted a lot of money and time on so called marketing experts. 75 minutes spent with Gill has been invaluable. Her clarity, knowledge of the profession, financial and marketing skills are amazing.

Confidence is the X Factor in growing a successful practice.
It can be overwhelming establishing yourself as a practitioner. The key to being an effective health professional is to deliver treatment plans that work and are easy for your client to implement. Under-confident clinicians often end up over-thinking their therapeutic approach, which can result in poor patient compliance.
Being supported by an experienced and savvy practitioner, is the smartest way to grow your clinical confidence. In addition to business mentoring, Gill helps naturopaths, nutritionists and herbalists expand clinical skills such as:
- setting client expectations
- patient management
- identify gaps in clinical knowledge
- clinical competence
- efficient use of time
- effective prescribing
- managing treatment plans
- case reviews
- establishing boundaries
Clinical competence grows confidence
Sound clinical knowledge is fundamental to improve competence. While marketing is essential to grow your client base, you need to follow through with effective treatment and good patient management to deliver the best care possible. Well executed social media strategies are great for attracting new clients but it’s what happens in the consultation that leads to ongoing and new business.
Satisfied clients grow your business with ease!
Professional supervision helps dispel some of the isolation that many solo practitioners experience. When you make a commitment to ongoing mentoring (and are currently in clinical practice) you can access Gill’s private Facebook mentoring group and connect with other like minded practitioners.

Since 2017 Gill Stannard co-creates and leads retreats in Bali for health professionals. Our inaugural. Rest, Revitalise & Inspire practitioner retreat in Bali was a great success, and our 2018 retreat booked out.
“I ‘was’ that person thinking WTF, flailing around trying to do marketing for myself. Ha!
Taking the time and finding truly what my values are. …is confirmation to follow my heart and start this project that I had been only dreaming about. Previously focusing on the obstacles. As opposed to putting one foot in front of the other and doing.”
