For Occupational Therapists Ready To Start A Practice Or Take Their Practice To The Next Level.


You’re here to change children’s lives with your awesome therapy skills. However the real challenge for most therapists is how to run your practice. It’s not your fault because they didn’t teach you how to do that in university and it feels overwhelming and sometimes as if you are out of your depth.

This fear and overwhelm can hold you back.

Can you answer YES to any of the following questions?

Are you running your therapy business and feel like you’re winging it?

Do you feel as if you work too hard and you’re not sure what’s profit?

Are you considering branching out on your own but don’t know where to start?

If you’re like most therapists I talk to, chances are you: 

Are working too hard, working nights and the weekend and not being paid for the hours and time you put into your private practice

Feel overwhelmed and at a loss to know where to go for help

And if you’re being really honest, your dream is getting in the way of your family time and is stealing the joy in your life.

I totally get it…

I’ve been where you are … it’s not fun.

I’ve worked late writing reports and creating invoices.
I’ve worked 6-day weeks and missed out on time with my family.
I’ve worked so many public holidays pursuing my dream, while the family went to the beach.

But the truth is …

YOU know that creating a profitable business that’s simple to manage would be easier … if you had a guidebook.


So, if you want to start your therapy business and do it in YOUR genius way …
then you need to figure out the RIGHT STEPS and what to do next. ASAP!
It’s entirely possible that you can have your own therapy business helping kids in your own genius zone … but you can’t move forward without the clarity you need to take the next step. 
Want to know the secret behind building a successful therapy business? One that uses your skills to your potential?

Here’s the truth — as an occupational therapist for over 23 years, I’ve supported over 100 therapists in developing their business and clinical skills. I can tell you that when it comes time to build their business and skills, confidence and clarity are CRUCIAL to implementing a successful business plan.

At the end of the day, the strategies you put in place at the start impact on your time, client outcomes, sustainability, and quality of life.

They are THE thing that sets apart a stressful business from a sustainable one.
Which means successful therapists learn how to do the right tasks in the right order. They also know how to set up processes, systems and outsource tasks … at the right stages.

They have an actual PLAN for their business birth and development.

They don’t build their businesses blindly, they don’t close their eyes to the numbers and financials while hoping it all works out, and they don’t minimise the importance of continual learning.

And neither should you.

I know firsthand how an effective business strategy can transform a new or growing business (to the tune of thousands of dollars or hours of wasted time). 

And now, I want to help you transform yours.

That’s exactly why I created the Build Your Sustainable and Profitable Therapy Business Bootcamp.

So that’s exactly what I’m giving you – a strategy and priority steps for building and creating a sustainable therapy business so you can pay yourself an above award wage and have more time for the important things. .

My 8-week program will do just that. 


How to Build Your Sustainable, Profitable Therapy Business in 8 weeks or less

Without working nights & weekends.

Build Your Sustainable, Profitable Therapy Business Bootcamp is an 8-week online course that hands you my complete system to start your business and make it more profitable without having to pay thousands of dollars for business coaching.

This is the exact same system I’ve used to help over 50 paediatric occupational therapists set up and grow their businesses in 2020 through the COVID-19 pandemic.

Many of them during this time have left their 9-5 job and are now full-time and thriving in their own businesses, doing therapy THEIR WAY. Their newfound independence allows them to bring their own therapy genius zone to children and families.

It has helped these therapists to fast-track their business setup. They have learned how to reduce the mental load and frustration of trying to do it all by outsourcing tasks much sooner than they thought possible. 

Here’s How It Breaks Down over the next 8 weeks and each module will have practical step-by-step instructions:

I have had the privilege of joining the amazing Deb Hopper for the last 18 months, working through the 8 week Therapy Business Bootcamp, the Implement Your Business program and the Therapy Business Mastermind. The bootcamp filled in all the gaps in my business, so it is now not only profitable and sustainable but organised and running smoothly. The Implement program allowed time with Deb, answering the many questions specific to my business. The Mastermind Group moved me onto bigger and better things in OT with many opportunities presented to expand my clinical and business skills and get creative exploring other sources of income. Learning to set business and therapy goals and being accountable helped me to achieve more than I thought was possible. I have met many other OT’s from all over Australia, gaining ideas and support, as well as cheering them on with their business and clinical goals. Deb is passionate about OT, full of energy and enthusiasm and willing to pass on everything she knows to help OT’s thrive as OT’s and business owners. Deb, you are appreciated for who you are and all you bring to the OT world!

– OT Melbourne

I can’t wait to walk through this program with you!

As an Occupational Therapist of 23 years, and being in private practice 15 years, I wish this business boot camp had been there when I started! I would have saved thousands of dollars and years of making mistakes and failing forwards!

Let me work with you and support you…
