I feel at times there is a gap between the amazing projects people are doing at their place of work, and identification with the word innovation. People are sometimes not confident that what they are doing is actually innovative. Over the years, I have met so many wonderful therapists, and I can tell you, there are so many creative, driven, amazing, innovative therapists within allied health. You definitely do not have to invent things to be innovative!

I often see clients in my practice that are struggling to cope with the changes that come with an injury. These can include loss of function, change of roles, thoughts of an injury or accident, or stress on relationships. There have been times when some of my clients have been waiting for professional counselling services to begin, and I have needed something in the meantime to help them - a tool that I can help them access to provide some interim support. Well I found something and I was very excited.

One of the challenges I frequently hear from allied health practitioners is the ability to feel comfortable on the topic of client fees. Therapists (often those that are sole practitioners, or staff working in outreach, or satellite clinics) sometimes feel awkward when there is no ‘barrier’ between them and the patient in terms of cash handling; and when they have treated a client, to then take money and ask them to book in again. Can you relate to this?
