Highlights from Episode 61
In this episode we answered the following questions:
“I am often contacted by some of the country’s leading magazines, TV and radio shows for ‘expert comment’. It is very time consuming as they send through 5-10 questions for magazine articles and radio takes a lot of prep plus the actual recording time. I want to stay friendly with the journalists but at the moment I don’t have the time. Is it ever ok to say ‘no’ to media requests? If so how – so that I will be contacted again in the future when I have more time? Thanks.”
2. James, London, UK
“Hi Juliet and Clinton. I love the podcast. I am a psychotherapist and I have been working in private practice for around 2 years. I currently rent an office in central London where I consult with clients.
For some time now, I’ve been thinking about moving my practice from this office to my home. Other than issues such as personal safety and non-verbal disclosures, I’m wondering what other factors I might want to consider before making a final decision of whether or not to see clients in my home?
I have a very small flat. There’s no specific room for therapy, so I was thinking of seeing clients in my living room, which has neutral decor. From your experience, is it better to continue seeing clients at the office, or would I be better off (including financially) seeing clients at home? Many thanks, James.”
“Juliet and Clinton – Thanks for your great podcast! I’ve listened to almost every episode and am learning so much. I am a yoga teacher and have been renting space in different places to offer my own private yoga classes. Eventually I hope to have my own studio, but I am finding it so difficult to get enough students for my classes. I wonder if it is worth it to continue? I think I have a unique perspective on yoga so I think I have a lot to offer, but I’m just not sure how viable it is to continue this business. There are so many yoga studios competing with me.”
