What is successful private practice?

What success means is different for everyone. As counsellors, it’s important that we work authentically by respecting our own integrity, being true to our own values as well as our professional ethics and practicing good self-care.

This one day experiential workshop will give you time to explore your visions, hopes and fears about setting up your private practice with a group of colleagues in the early stages of their journey. Your facilitator, Antonia, has built - and continues to grow - her own private practice. She has successfully navigated the positives, the challenges and the pitfalls of ‘being her own boss’ and hopes her experiences might act as a shortcut to your own learning.

What we’ll cover

As well as opportunities for small group work, dialogue and self-reflection around mindset, limiting beliefs and managing expectations, we’ll look at some of the business practicalities of setting up your private practice including:

  • Legal and ethical requirements

  • Where to practice - pros and cons of working from various counselling venues

  • The ‘creative stuff’ - branding, marketing ideas, ways to create an impact

  • Self-care

Note: Tea/coffee/water are available throughout the day. Participants are asked to make their own lunch arrangements. There are a good selection of cafes and restaurants within easy distance of The Therapy Workshop.
