3 Common Mistakes Therapists Make with Their Therapy Clients

Don’t Make These 3 Common Mistakes with Your Clients

Do you remember when you first set up your practice? You probably didn’t know if you would be able to get any therapy clients and once you did you wondered if they would stay. Eventually, clients streamed in either through your marketing efforts or through referrals and now that your schedule is full,  you’ve noticed that not every client is the same.
