Saint Nick taking not just cookies but your clients too? Now, we have all been taught to brace ourselves for the lull that comes with Winter, that our phones will stop ringing until after we’ve rung in the New Year. But what if there was a better way and this didn’t have to be true, what if your practice didn’t have to slow down for a few months? Here are some simple ways you can Holiday-proof your practice:
- Offer services people seek out during the winter. Think seasonal affect disorder or family therapy (hello in-laws!).
- Reach out to clients you haven’t heard from in a while. This might be a great time to offer check-in and follow-up sessions.
- The holidays can make it difficult to get to the therapist’s office, so offer tele-sessions using a secure video conferencing service.
- Let your existing clients know when you’ll be available and when you’re taking time off so they can schedule their appointments in advance.
