How are you going in these extraordinary times?
I’ve been talking with a lot of practitioners over this past month or two. I hear you. These are extraordinary circumstances and the most challenging time that most of us have ever faced.
Many are making tough decisions around much loved practices. There’s been grief, bargaining, sadness, anger and a lot of scrambling. Some have needed to start from scratch to move offerings online, while others are broadening their services beyond individual consultations.
Change can be both exhausting and exciting. If you’re struggling with this journey, I’m here if you need help to find your way through.
Transitioning from fear to growth
Having survived at least three recessions and ‘down turns’ in almost 30 years of practice I know that that it’s the action we take now, that’s the biggest predictor for survival.
Evolution is all about adaptation and business is no different. While we (and some of our clients) see our services as essential, in reality complementary and allied health falls very much into the discretionary spending category.
When the economy is rocky, it’s not unusual for clients to push time out between consultations or suspend treatment. Your boundaries may be challenged. You may need to be creative in ways to continue to serve your community.
The current situation is offering time to pause, reflect and reconsider how you want to work.
This is the time to deep dive into your values, ‘why’ and alter your path, if needed.
These processes can feel very lonely at times. What help do you need to get through this?
In response to the needs of some of my current mentees I’ve begun offering group mentoring sessions.
I’m now ready to open new groups, whether we’ve worked together previously or not. These very small groups, or pods, are a way of supporting each other, as well as getting some expert guidance at an affordable price.
Who is group mentoring for?
I specialise in mentoring established naturopaths, herbalists and nutritionists. To join group mentoring you will need to have an established practice for at least one year.
Groups sizes are usually a minimum of three and maximum of six participants. These 60 -75 minutes sessions are only $60 each, pay as you go.
If you’re feeling particularly challenged right now, an individual session could be a more useful place to start before joining a pod.
