Being in private practice can be isolating.
If you're a clinician in a private practice, you may feel like very few people understand what you do and the challenges that come along with the work.
It's easy to get distracted or to spend hours running around in circles trying to fix a small thing.
This is why I recommend joining an accountability group ASAP
An accountability group is simply a small group of people who meet regularly to check in and provide support for one another.
This doesn't have to take a long time.
Just 10-15 minutes per person can be enough to make all the difference in your work.
In accountability groups, you're not talking about cases.
Instead, you're focusing on what you need to do to grow/build/run your practice more smoothly.
Joining an accountability group (sometimes called a mastermind group) and committing to showing up for yourself and for the others in your group once weekly is probably the single most helpful thing you can do if your intention is to build and grown your practice this year.
It sounds simple, but over time it makes all the difference to state your intentions out loud and to hear yourself saying what you worked on over the past week and what you'd like to work on in the upcoming week.
You'll get feedback and reflections from others in the group, and you'll hear what is and is not working for others as well.
In this episode, I discuss how to form an accountability group, what you should talk about if you do join one, and how to make sure the time is well-spent.
If you're interested in even more support and accountability, check out my Monday Mentoring program. When you join, you'll attend our regular weekly meetings AND have the option to join an accountability group with other practitioners.
