How to set your fees in private practice

Fees in private practice is a taboo subject for many reasons. One, it can be difficult to talk about within professional organizations because of anti-trust laws. Two, many people haven't been taught any process for setting their fee or developing a business plan. So, you have people making guesses, just doing what others are doing (without knowing whether that actually works or not), etc. 

Over here at ZynnyMe we LOVE to have the money conversation with therapists. Why? Because it is such an important conversation. If you are in private practice or starting a private practice,  you are a small business owner. If you don't have money coming in, you can't keep your business open. That is how business works. 

Watch this awesome 6 minute video that we recorded with our friend Jo Muirhead. She is from Australia and has a wonderful voice and vision for discussing the money topic. Give it a listen, and then watch our full, free training on how to set fees as a therapist right here

Jo Muirhead helps therapists and allied health professionals from around the world build strong private practices. See what she has to say about setting your fee in private practice.

I have successfully built a cash pay psychotherapy practice from scratch on a shoestring budget. I have also failed a licensed exam by 1 point (only to have the licensing board send me a later months later saying I passed), started an online study group to ease my own isolation and have now reached thousands of therapists across the country, helped other therapists market their psychotherapy practices, and helped awesome business owners move from close to closing their doors, to being profitable in less than 6 weeks. I've failed at launching online programs. I've had wild success at launching online programs. I've made mistakes in private practice I've taught others how to avoid my mistakes. You can do this. You were called to this work. Now- go do it! Find some help or inspiration as you need it- but do the work!
