Are you wanting to connect to both non-believer and Christian clients alike? How can you as a counselor attract them both without turning the other away? What are some general tips you can follow?
In this podcast episode, Whitney Owens speaks about how to attract your ideal client with Bewindi Bobb.
Meet Bewindi Bobb
Bewindi was born and raised in the beautiful, gorgeous Island of St. Lucia in the Caribbean. Her journey towards accepting the calling to be a counselor is interesting, but let’s just say, she eventually stopped running (insert laughter) and realized that being a counselor is not just a profession but a God-given and ordained calling and ministry.
She helps professionals who are dealing with unresolved emotional conflicts such as depression, anxiety, grief, stress,etc live freely by equipping them with tools to renew their mindsets. She loves to encourage and empower clients and when they apply the tools, they are able to show up for themselves and be their best selves in all areas of their lives. Additionally, she provides Christ-Centered Counseling to whom it applies and for those who request.
With over 14 years of clinical experience, she is driven and fueled by her professional and personal values including but not limited to Faith, Empower, Purpose, Service, Encourage, and Teach. She is so honored to be in this space and knows that whether she is providing therapy, coaching, supervision, or speaking to an audience or on her podcast, ‘Empowered to Empower You’, she is convinced that people are definitely encouraged and ignited.

Attracting Christian clients without turning away others
Affirming daily to ask God to bring the right people, whoever they may be and whatever they believe, to come to the business.
Everywhere Bewindi’s business is marketed, it is marketed as open to anyone. Even during counseling sessions, Bewindi explains to her clients who she serves and that she also offers non-religious counseling as well because she believes that counselors can be solutions for people, no matter where they may come from or who they follow.
Bewindi also asks on her online questionnaire to potential clients if they are faith-based or not to understand them better and how she can move forward in their counseling. Even in non-believers, Bewindi still knows she can serve and help them.
Empowered to Empower You Podcast
A platform for offering hope to people, talking about wellness, what hinders spiritual wellness, and so forth. On the platform, Bewindi mainly discusses how people can improve their lives and maintain their internal selves.
Bewindi’s advice to Christian counselors

Meet Whitney Owens
Whitney is a licensed professional counselor and owns a growing group practice in Savannah, Georgia. Along with a wealth of experience managing a practice, she also has an extensive history working in a variety of clinical and religious settings, allowing her to specialize in consulting for faith-based practices and those wanting to connect with religious organizations.
Knowing the pains and difficulties surrounding building a private practice, she started this podcast to help clinicians start, grow, and scale a faith-based practice. She has learned how to start and grow a successful practice that adheres to her own faith and values. And as a private practice consultant, she has helped many clinicians do the same.
