Transparency is the key to building trust with clients from the first interaction. Journey profiles allow you to clearly outline what clients can expect during sessions which ensures alignment by fostering a positive relationship from the outset.

  • Trust and confidence: Clear expectations reduce misunderstandings and create trust with your clients.

In addition to professional expertise, the individual relationships we build with our clients are essential for growth. Journey encourages you to share personal insights with your clients, such as your favourite books, podcasts or music.

  • Make your practice personable: When you share your interests with your clients, it helps them to see you as a whole person beyond just the role of a practitioner. This can serve as a great conversation starter and can significantly strengthen your bond.

  • Create resource lists: Regularly compile recommendation lists that are consistent with your approach to engage and retain your clients.

  • Promote your work: Use Journey’s promotion features to reach a broader audience and attract clients who value your specialized knowledge.

Dr. Nicole Nasr, Psychologist, Founder & CEO of Journey

Dr. Nicole Nasr is the founder of Journey, a matching platform between clients and practitioners. After qualifying as a psychologist, she began her career working for two practices, but as time went on, yearned for greater flexibility and autonomy. She turned to Instagram which brought her 36 clients in just nine months, but soon discovered that filming herself, managing her account, and creating content was overwhelming and didn't align with her passion. Driven by the belief that she couldn't be the only one facing these hurdles, the concept of Journey was born. Dr Nicole envisioned a platform that would free practitioners from the burdens of self-advertising, so they could wholeheartedly focus on their clients.
