Hi! I’m Cindy, a therapist in private practice who likes to ignore her phone. All jokes aside, I created a system so that I could still book ideal clients without having to be tied to my phone.
I don’t want you to feel torn like I did when I was starting my practice - needing new clients, yet hiding from my phone. Some of you may think this sounds ridiculous - not answering my phone when I need new clients. However, there are those of you who get it. Those who are just like me with their aversion to answering their phone. So this is for you!
Don’t get me wrong. I don’t mind talking on the phone. I really enjoy my phone consultations with potential clients. However, I didn’t enjoy feeling like I had to be at the beck and call of my business phone 24/7 just in case a potential client was calling. And when my phone did ring, it was at the most inconvenient times - while I’m in line at the grocery store, when I’m with a client, or when I’m 45 minutes into watching Dead Files and I am about to find out if they should leave their haunted house, or if they can get rid of the spirits and stay.
When a potential client is on the other end of the phone, I want to give them my undivided attention and the support that they deserve. I’m unable to do this at random times throughout the day. By implementing this system, I am able to give potential clients the support they need at a time that I’m available and prepared.
This system has been a game changer for my private practice, and I think it will be for yours too.
