MentorCoach™ One-Day Workshops

Coaching for Clinicians

This workshop gives therapists practical advice on building a small, highly regarded telephone-coaching practice that offers significant advantages for natural, profitable diversification. The workshop provides concrete advice on how to structure and build a coaching practice, how to locate rewarding clients, and how, in the process, to protect the integrity of your ongoing clinical work.

Coaching for Clinicians is led by MentorCoach™ founder, Ben Dean PhD.

What You Will Learn:

How properly to structure a telephone (or virtual) coaching practice which:

  • builds on clinical skills every good therapist takes for granted.

  • is a perfect fit with the 50-minute hour.

  • allows you to practice and "serve" on a national/international basis.

  • is managed-care-free (100% self-pay).

  • no longer ties you to a geographic area; can be delivered from your office, your deck, or the beach.

  • exponentially expands your potential market and out-of-town referrals; you jump from a local-only practice to a national/international market.

  • is life-enhancing (delivered to rewarding, high-functioning, appreciative clients).

In Addition, the Workshop Will Cover:

  • How to test, step-by-step, if a coaching practice is for you.

  • How coaching differs clinically from the typical paradigm of a clinician in private practice.

  • New coaching skills needed plus how to use existing skills in a new, highly successful way.

  • Legal and ethical concerns and controversies.

  • How to coach virtual groups by telephone locally and around the world.

  • How to develop powerful marketing skills for a successful practice.

  • How to resolve ambivalence about coaching; structure time and promotional efforts; stay energized and motivated.

  • How to use fax, email, and the Internet as powerful global marketing tools.

  • How to build a profitable and deeply satisfying stream of clients.
