'The Ultimate Guide to Developing Private Practice'




Private Practice Consultations

Private practice can be life changing for therapists and can help to provide you the work-life balance you have dreamed of, while also doing your dream job and helping to change clients lives. 

It can however be incredibly challenging and depleting, and it takes some time to get it right. After jumping over several hurdles during the past five years I have grown my practice to be diverse, inclusive, flexible and financially viable. I have been in private practice for five years and after facilitating several workshops with my colleague Danielle we decided to put that knowledge into an e-book. Not only can the e-book help you but I also offer private 1-2-1 consultations to help you on your private practice journey.

The consultations are bespoke to you, during an initial call you can tell me more about what support you are looking for while you set up (or grow your private practice). Common topics you might want to discuss are:

  • Getting started - how do I start and what needs to be prioritised first?

  • Moving from employed work to self employed work.

  • Self Employed vs Ltd Company. 

  • Finance management.

  • Business administration - including creating paperwork and contracting. 

  • Diversifying income - how to survive when client numbers are low.

  • The key of finding your niche.

  • Social media as a therapist (the good, the bad and the ugly).

  • How to attract your 'ideal clients'.
