How to create a private therapy practice
The practical steps in setting up, developing and sustaining a therapy or coaching practice

Are you thinking of starting a private therapy practice? Maybe you are struggling to know how to go about it? You are probably excited about using your skills to help those who need you, but, how do you get there from here?

Like acquiring any role, becoming a self-employed practitioner is a multi-layered process. There is information you need to know, skills you need to learn, action you need to take, and of course, handling the emotional impact of all of that. Unlike qualifying as a therapist, there is no clear path, no syllabus or college course you can take that will lead you there. Each person’s journey is unique to them, and there are many routes. There is a dizzying amount of information about small business out there, but much of it is irrelevant to the practice of counselling and psychotherapy.

Who is this workshop for?

This workshop provides information and support to therapists and counsellors who are starting a private therapy practice, whether part or full time, or have recently done so. It is designed to help you get started by identifying the essentials.

Course content includes:

We will explore the practicalities of starting a practice, and in being self employed. You will envision the practice you would like to create, and the services you will provide. You can begin to identify your preferred clients and the channels through which to attract them. We will also explore the financial issues you may need to address, such as how much do you hope to earn from your practice, and what will be your typical costs and expenses, pricing and charging for your work, and valuing your time and expertise. At each stage we will also look at the challenges and dilemmas you will meet along the way.
