Private Practice for Counsellors


Many counsellors get their qualifications, only to find that getting started as a counsellor and getting paid clients is much more difficult than it looks.

Maybe you’ve been qualified for a while and you are stuck doing low-paid work for an agency that is constantly struggling with funding?

If you want to:

  • Set up a successful private practice
  • Build a solid professional reputation
  • Attract paying clients with ease
  • Be well paid for your work

– then contact me for one-to-one coaching.  Frequent challenges for counsellors are:

  • Getting started:  where are you now and what are your challenges?
  • Business planning: what it is and why you need it.
  • Working in your practice and on your practice.
  • The inner challenges:  confidence, anxiety, dealing with self-employment, asking for money.
  • Practicalities: location, rooms, safe working, partnerships.
  • Regulation:  accreditation, insurance, taxation.
  • Marketing:  where will my clients come from?
  • Money: charging a competitive rate, getting over money blocks.

The coaching is on-line via Zoom.  Call me for an initial chat to see whether we would be a good fit to work together
