Is the profession what you thought it was?
It’s not uncommon for new graduates to feel overwhelmed after graduation. It’s not easy to enter a profession riddled with conflict and politics. Not only that, you might be starting a patient base from scratch, or taking over from a highly experienced associate.
We can help make the transition from new graduate to confident professional as smooth as possible. Coaching can take you through what can be an emotionally and physically difficult period. We can help identify the goals you’d like to achieve during your first few weeks and years in practice.
If you’ve been in practice for a few years, you might be feeling jaded or falling out of love with the profession. You may feel like you’re trading your personal time for clinic and worrying about sacrificing income in favour of family life. Making improvements to your work-life balance is a common goal. Stop daydreaming through life waiting for things to change, and instead create your vision for success. Most importantly, coaching will help you understand what it is you need to do to get there.
Build your patient base
We work exclusively with ethical, patient-centred chiropractors.
Do you notice feast-and-famine in your clinic diary? You’re not alone. So much of building a patient base relies on the way in which we communicate with patients, and our choice of language can have a huge impact on their outcomes from care. Effective communication is both art and science combined. Communication is often overlooked during your formal training. As part of your coaching programme, you’ll learn specific questioning techniques which can be used in clinic. These skills can be used to immediately affect your patient communications, build rapport, and ethically create a patient base of engaged, motivated people.
Improve your outcomes from care
During your coaching sessions, you’ll learn some coaching skills yourself which will help you instigate behaviour change in your patients. You’ll feel able to empower and motivate them to take a ownership of their healthcare and develop accountability for their own healthcare decisions.
Manage your stress
Have you ever left clinic at the end of the day feeling overwhelmed?
You’re not alone. Psychotherapists have mandatory supervision to help manage their mental health. Chiropractors have no such support.
Through coaching, you’ll learn to devise strategies, develop coping mechanisms and master communication skills. These skills ensure you can manage the tough conversations at work and cope when your workload feels overwhelming. This keeps you positive, focussed and prepared not just for the next clinic shift, but for the rest of your professional career.
