An Online Workshop on Establishing and Maintaining a Thriving Counselling Practice

therapeutic relationship

Building a thriving counselling practice requires a combination of education, experience, and business awareness. 

Our 90-minute workshop is designed to enhance your business skills and support your journey towards a successful career as a counsellor in private practice.

Training Objective

The workshop is aimed at newly qualified counsellors, psychotherapists, or therapists who are finding it challenging to develop a thriving counselling practice.

The workshop will explore the steps that new therapists should take when setting up their practice, with tips on how to build their client list and maintain a healthy business.

We will delve into topics to equip new therapists starting in private practice. We will explore each stage of the journey from preparation, marketing, seeing clients, to maintaining a healthy client list and exploring areas of future growth.
