How a Nutritional Therapist Achieved Work-Life Balance

January 30, 2024

Helen Goodall is the owner of Helen Goodall Nutrition. As a Nutritional Therapist, she helps individuals struggling with various health issues, including gut health, skin health, menopause, and perimenopause. Helen has found that working with Practice Better she can achieve greater work life balance.

Bogged Down with Admin & Paperwork

When Helen started her practice in 2022, she was determined to provide clients with the support they needed to achieve their health goals and feel their best. However, she soon encountered the daunting challenges of administrative work and found herself bogged down with paperwork. Helen was struggling to efficiently manage her practice and increase revenue while also maintaining a balance between her personal life as a single mom.

The Solution: Practice Better

Helen knew that if she wanted to truly make a positive impact on her clients’ lives, she would need a solution to lift the administrative burden. Enter Practice Better.

When Helen started using Practice Better, she was better able to manage her client meetings from start to finish. All her client information is in one place and accessible even when she’s on the move.

Thanks to Practice Better, Helen no longer has to juggle multiple platforms or multiple logins.

Saving Time with Automation & Integrations

Helen immediately started saving time by using Practice Better’s automations, like payments, forms, and scheduling. Claiming these tools completely transformed her practice.

Practice Better integrates with Natural Dispensary, which makes it easy for Helen to provide clients with nutritional supplements tailored to their specific needs.

A Better Client Experience

Practice Better’s client portal ensures that clients have an easy and secure experience while working with their practitioner. Since adopting Practice Better, Helen’s clients’ health journeys have been simplified as well, giving them easy access to meeting notes, protocols, telehealth, and messaging. Practice Better is HIPAA compliant, so Helen feels confident she is preserving client confidentiality.

Getting Started is Easy

Helen chose Practice Better primarily because of the free Sprout plan, as it offered her the chance to explore and experiment first before making a commitment. She was able to quickly get set up and running with the platform thanks to incredible support from Practice Better’s team.

More Time to Focus = More Business Growth

As Helen looks to the future, she aims to continue to specialize in gut health, offering tailored protocols for different conditions through Practice Better, continuing online group programs, and possibly even writing a book on digestive health.

Helen is currently running a successful online menopause reset program with the goal of bringing in more recurring revenue. She’s also planning on building out more predefined protocols to help make both individual recommendations and group programs run more efficiently.

Improved Work-Life Balance

Helen’s story shows how software like Practice Better can significantly impact a practitioner’s life and business. By automating administrative tasks and offering a client-friendly experience, Practice Better has allowed Helen to provide the best possible care to her clients, all while pursuing her passion for nutritional therapy. Her commitment to making a difference in people’s lives is at the heart of her practice, and Practice Better is honored to be an essential partner in her mission.
