Jo Permaul: Build Resilience and Balance in Your Therapy Practice 

Jo Permaul retrained as a homeopath following a long relationship with the therapy in helping her with allergies and other ailments.

Initially, Jo worked as a teacher but wanted to use her love for natural and complementary medicine to help others. She has been treating people for seven years and also works as a Holistic Life Coach.

Following the challenges of moving her practice online due to COVID-19, Jo launched Resilient Therapist where she helps other therapists create a balance between treating patients and managing the business side of their practice, for which she won the Gold Award in The Janey Loves Awards.

Jo joins me today to share her journey from teaching to Homeopathy and the transferable skills she’s gained to help her launch her new business.

She shares how her business evolved from treating people to helping other therapists with their businesses and reveals the importance of finding the right balance between helping others in your practice and managing business tasks.

Jo shares the tools she uses to stay organised and how technology and the pandemic are helping normalise specific therapies.

She shares what she has noticed with her clients during the lockdown and how she maintains her resilience and wellbeing during these challenging times.

She also describes how the second lockdown’s seasonal changes are causing different challenges and what she does to stay up-to-date with the latest homeopathic practices.

“It’s about boundaries; it’s about you as a therapist having good boundaries and knowing what you can and can’t do.”
