Solo Physiotherapy Practice grows into a Large Multidisciplinary Clinic

Tessa Hinds started her own physiotherapy practice in 2011 - in a tiny corner within a bike shop! It wasn’t long before she brought Sarah Golding into the practice as a partner and together they built their client base before moving to much larger premises. The clinic now occupies a large and very prominent space on a busy street in their local area and Tessa says she’s “amazed and never could have imagined getting to this size - especially when I think of how we started!”

Podiatrist utilises Power Diary to build a unique kind of practice

David Walker didn’t come to private practice via the traditional route as he spent the first half of his working career in academia teaching functional anatomy and biomechanics to budding podiatrists in University training. Eventually, the frustration that “people weren’t necessarily getting appropriate treatments” drew him to leave the education sector and go out into private practice. He took a pragmatic engineering approach to diagnosis and management and his practice grew to have 5 practitioners operating across 3 locations.

Psychology Clinic Uses Power Diary to Minimise Administration and Focus on Customer Service

Psi Balance Psychology was born from a desire to help people live a joyful life and “a fascination with why people do the things they do”. The clinic now has five psychologists operating near capacity, and founder Ray says that Power Diary has been an important part of helping them scale. “We’re able to run with minimal admin staff, and I’d estimate Power Diary saves me personally 2 hours a day - I really don’t have to do anything. It also allows (practice manager) Glynda to work school hours. It really is a tool that empowers practitioners.”

Speech Pathologist breaks free from Evenings of Admin

When Sophie first started her speech pathology practice, she used a simple paper diary and manilla folders for client files. But by 2015, she realised that things had to change. With a busy schedule seeing up to 8 clients a day, the paperwork was getting out of hand. It was becoming increasingly harder to find things and she didn’t feel like she was ever on top of the workload. She was also motivated by environmental concerns and wanted to move towards a paperless clinic (or at least avoid using paper as much as possible!).
