Private Practice in Canada

How to Start and Run a Successful Mental Health Practice

Quick: During your professional training, how many hours were dedicated to establishing a private practice and running a business? If you’re like most people, the answer is either “none” or “almost none.” No surprises, then, that we have a lot of frustration when we set out on our own.

In this webinar designed specifically for Canadian mental health professionals, Dr Randy Paterson (author of Private Practice Made Simple) emphasizes the specifics of defining, establishing, enhancing, and maintaining an effective, remunerative, and enjoyable private practice. The goal is not simply to be inspirational. If you’re contemplating this course, you already have the inspiration. You need the specifics.

  • How can you best define the scope of your service?
  • How do you select, furnish and sound-dampen office space?
  • What are the tax implications?
  • Is payroll difficult to set up?
  • What about GST/HST?
  • What are some things you can do to avoid isolation and burnout?

The intent is to provide you with the detail you need to make your work life simpler and more sustaining. The course is designed both for those contemplating private practice as a potential career option, AND for those already in private practice who want to elevate their business to the next level.

My goal is to have this course pay off for you by a minimum of ten times the registration fee - by saving you money on the expense side, saving you time and sweat on the admin side, and by earning revenues and referrals on the practice side. Can it do that? In fact, I've set myself a very low bar for success. I'll be disappointed if that's all it does for you. It should pay off by a much higher multiple.

So join us and build up a sustainable, enjoyable, and effective private practice!
