There are many reasons why a clinician may look at moving into private practice.
SWIPP offers the use of their 'Mind Mode' services to eligible practitioners who apply. These practitioners must show morals in line with the Mind Mode values of ethics, honesty, integrity and ongoing learning, as well as a number of other criteria. The benefit is that you know you are joining a well respected brand and can start seeing client's almost immediately!
Under 'Mind Mode' you will have access to:
In other words...walk in and start work!
SWIPP offers packages that help us to take your ideas and turn them into reality. These tailored packages can include just the basics, like help setting up an ABN, business name and cost tracking, all the way to the full package which can include:
In other words, have your dream created, then walk in and start!
Honesty and integrity are important to us. We don't want to just sell you a product, we also want to help you make informed decisions.
There are other options of moving into private practice! Some private practices take on contractors and employees in a variety of arrangements.
There is A LOT of information out there, and you should always consider what is in line with your life goals, as well as your values and needs.
If you are looking at moving into private practice early in your career it is good to think about joining a group practice, or using our 'Mind Mode' option as this allows you to be connected to a team and continue your learning with experienced support around you.
If you are looking to start your own private practice, we encourage you to network with others, such as joining the SWIPP group, to maintain support and prevent the feeling of isolation that can come from individual private practice.
The APS and AAPI websites have a lot of good information to look at, to help you understand what may be best for you. You can also checkout our options, and if you're unsure, or just want to talk through your reasoning, you can give us a bell and we can arrange a meet-up.
