Mastery Programme Membership
Our fundamental aim is to help you to enjoy your work, achieve your vision and feel as confident as a business owner as you do as a clinician
As a clinician, you will be assessing, diagnosing and treating your patients on a daily basis to help them to achieve their desired outcomes. This may be getting them back to, or keeping them doing the things they love, or improving their quality of life.
Simply applying the same process to your business, we will help you to achieve the results, rewards and freedom you desire.
The Challenges faced by Practice Owners
Having worked in this sector for many years, we have seen the journey that practitioners have taken time and time again, often with very similar patterns of challenges over a period of time.
When studying to be a clinician you are exposed to very little business training. This is true for many professions. You might have started out working for someone else once qualified and had aspirations of owning your own clinic one day.
It looks easy enough to run a practice and you’ve worked out that you can have more freedom by not having to answer to anyone else and you will be financially better off. So you go for it!
And then reality kicks in… you are soon immersed in the challenges of running a clinic and you realise being a great clinician isn’t enough. You need to develop your business skills.
You might also realise that you don’t have as much freedom as you had anticipated and the business seems to be all consuming, requiring you to work many more hours than you want to and perhaps not delivering the financial reward you anticipated. You need the right systems, processes and people in place.
At this point the help available might seem overwhelming and confusing. You might even have got your fingers burnt by investing in ‘too good to be true’ marketing ideas.
Joining the Mastery Programme, led by experienced business professionals, will ensure that you focus on the right things at the right time and in the right way to achieve the outcome you desire.
We will help you to get the balance right for you, develop the practice you desire, get the right systems, processes and team members in place, be confident as a practice owner and leader and make sure this all fits in with your future aspirations.

Welcome to a toolbox for running a therapy business. Celia’s mastery course identifies monthly themes to develop your business further. The mastery group has really forced us to think about the way we run our business and how we can better look after our business, team and clients both now and in the future.
There is a huge amount to help you grow. The ability to have regular teaching sessions, monthly personalised coaching sessions, regular Q&A sessions and monthly book club.
The peer support offered by Celia and the other mastery members is great, is a deeper dive into the success club and offers a supportive and constructive environment to learn in. I wish we could have had this course 10 years ago when we started our business.
What are you waiting for? Running a business is hard enough. Doing it on your own is even harder. Come and join us, take some of the weight off and let’s grow together!
I’m so glad I’m part of the Mastery Programme – it’s really given me confidence to push forwards and I’ve benefited so much for your advice
What Happens Next?
Once you have made the commitment to join, you will receive a client questionnaire to complete to help us deliver the best experience for you throughout the Mastery Programme.
