Do you make yourself available anytime a client wants you? It’s so tempting especially if you are struggling to get enough clients, or just starting out.

We’ve all been there. Offering a late, last-minute evening appointment, when we really want to be winding down and having dinner with our family. But no, we’re in the office or clinic, with a cold coffee and regretting our decision.

Setting boundaries was a lesson I learnt the hard way, as a new practitioner. I was already setting up my practice alongside working full time and found myself working ridiculous hours. To fit people in, I was overly flexible around appointment times. I started to feel like I was missing out on my life and a little resentful. Yet it was my own doing!
