How to Choose a Business Coach for Private Practice Success

When you have decided that you could use some help in growing your existing practice or starting a new one, there are several criteria we have found helpful in evaluating potential business coaches or mentors. These criteria are listed below:

  • Does the person still work as a psychotherapist in private practice? (Best if YES)
  • Does the person understand private practice in the 21st century? Have they lived it, or is it more theoretical to them? (Best if YES)
  • Is the person steering you away from therapy and into another profession such as coaching? (Best if NO)
  • Does the person have a successful track record in private practice? (Best if YES)
  • Does the person allow you to contact prior clients who have taken their trainings? (Best if YES)
  • Does the person offer you a comprehensive written knowledge base, that you can refer to in the future, to give you a solid foundation and mindset to deal with any changes that occur in our society or field? (Best if YES)
  • Does the person offer you more than one form of support, including access to others in their program? (Best if YES)

These are all important criteria in selecting someone to work with.
