In this episode, we get to hear from another Ohio based therapist, John Harrison. John grew up with money messages that did not serve him and he became aware of how these messages were playing out in his practice in ways that weren’t serving him. In this episode, he’ll share how he slowly raised his fee over time (and even slid backwards for a while), as well as what he learned along the way – about his clients, his business and himself.
In this episode, John will share:
How he slowly raised from $60/session to $150-240/session;
What kinds of anxieties come up for white dudes in practice (they struggle, too!);
A clinical interaction that showed him that he was missing something vital in his clinical work;
The “magic” that happened in his clinical work when he began addressing his money shit;
and so much more!
John wrote to us in November letting us know how things are going for his practice! He says:
I wanted to update you on my fee raise progress since we did our podcast episode in the summer.
My fee for existing clients goes up from $150 to $175 for 55 minute sessions and from $240 to $285 for 90 minute sessions. I’ve only had one client object out of 65. This goes into effect November 4th.
My rate for new clients went up from $150 to $200 per 55 minute session and from $240 to $325 for 90 minute sessions. Effective September 4th. (a little slow with the referral flow for September but really picked up in October). You’ve got to commit to your fee!
Results? I’m still booked with at least 4 new referrals a week. New clients paying new full fee.
