Use the wisdom of your heart & body to grow your practice and creative vision
with Ashlee Bennett.
You may be here because you want to develop a practice that's meaningful, ethical and helps create positive change in your community and field. Some of the appeal of private practice can be about seeking greater flexibility, autonomy and alignment with your ideas and vision, yet the world of business, marketing and finances can feel intimidating (and bring up self worth issues you didn't even know you had). You may even wonder if your business is contributing to the social issues you're trying to change. You're definitely not alone. It's both exciting and scary to do your own thing, back yourself and be responsible.
Ashlee has been serving her clients in private practice as a registered art psychotherapist, counsellor and coach for over 5 years. Throughout that time she has developed a thriving practice, a waitlist, a large social media following (@bodyimage_therapist), accepted an international book deal (The Art of Body Acceptance), toured workshops both nationally and internationally, developed successful online programs and has appeared on numerous podcasts. And while it may seem like behind the scenes there was a team of marketing experts, social media strategists, designers, agents and business advisors -- she was running largely solo, fuelled by a sense of purpose, meaning, lots of resourcefulness, creativity and heart.
Ashlee's shift from therapist into consultant, mentor and coach is based on an accumulation of years of experience as a creative, therapist and entrepreneur (including lessons from lots of failed business attempts in her younger years). In terms of formal qualifications she has a Bachelor of Fine Arts from University of Melbourne, a Master of Art Therapy and a Graduate Diploma of Applied Science (Research) from Latrobe University. Her approach is strengths based, focuses on increasing embodiment to access wisdom, intuition and authenticity to fuel your business and vision. Working with Ashlee may also bring up some deeper existential and even spiritual reflections with the intention to get yourself into alignment with your purpose and passion, however it's also scientific where it needs to be.
Some of the ways Ashlee can support you:
Transitioning to and sustainably building your private practice as a therapist or allied health practitioner
Authentically building your social media presence and marketing approach
Developing confidence in your writing, creativity and authentic voice
Discovering purpose, meaning and vision in your work
Working through fears of being seen, heard and taking up space
Navigating imposter syndrome and handling pushback/criticism
Building up your knowledge base particularly in the areas of body image, eating disorders, trauma, weight stigma/fat phobia (including internalised fat phobia), arts therapies, Health At Every Size® approach, weight inclusive practice, salutogenesis and the intersection of sociopolitical issues and mental health/illness.
