Setting up in Private Practice

It can be daunting to think about making the leap into Private Practice, even if you’ve already been working as an employee or a volunteer.  You’ve got the skills to help your clients, but do you know how to run a business?

There are many resources available all designed to help you set up on your own, but few of them are individually tailored to specific needs. My workshop ‘Business of Counselling – A Roadmap for Private Practice‘ is one such resource, a day long workshop designed to get you up and running.

I also offer a more individualised approach of a one to one session. A chance for you to get targetted advice specific to your situation. £100 for 2 hours which can be either face to face at my office, or via zoom.

Prior to the session, you will get the chance to specify the areas that you’d like to concentrate on, here are some suggestions to get you started;

  • Paperwork and documentation
  • Company structure
  • Paying yourself
  • Self Assessment and Paying Tax
  • Record Keeping
  • Communication
  • Client Notes
  • Tracking Finances
  • Software for Private Practice (financial or practice management)
  • Professional obligations
  • Fee Setting
  • Diary Management
  • Alternative income streams
