Do you have a therapy contract in place?
Many of us think of therapy itself as a contract with implied rights and responsibilities. However, it’s a good idea to have a written contract in place for your private practice. Check out our therapy contract page for more information about what to include.

Networking wins more clients!
For Practitioners earning up to £100,000, the most effective way of getting more clients quickly is through networking. Yet, in spite of Practitioners seeing clients every day with the specific aim of helping people, for many, the prospect of networking is a daunting one. A good way of warming up is to attend shows, especially if they’re likely to be attended by people of a similar mindset – it can be easier to network with your peers! One of the key shows coming up is COPA, the UK’s leading cross-sector event for physical therapies, hosted at the London ExCeL on May 8th & 9th and we’re delighted to say that again, Passion to Profit for Practitioners will be there. You’ll have the chance to hear them present their strategies for making your practice profitable and interact with Co-Founder Chris Lambert-Gorwyn on our Ask the Expert panel. Grab a copy of their free Networking Guide and visit them on Stand A78! They look forward to meeting you!
