Mentoring and Support Service
Are you a trained Counsellor or Psychotherapist looking for a career development into private practice? Are you uncertain of how to go about it? Then you’re looking in the right place. We offer a bespoke private practitioner mentoring service, tailored to your individual needs to help you create your own private practice.
We know from experience that the transitions into Private practice can present quite a challenge when you or have been used to working within a charitable agency as a volunteer, in the NHS mental health services or are newly trained.
We will focus specifically on your requirements to achieve the goals and objectives you choose for yourself.
We support you with:
Setting up the formal requirements necessary by law to create your practice and self-employment
Setting your own goals to build your successful business structure with good preparation and planning
Advertising and marketing your practice to maximise your business potential
Finding appropriate Insurance
Tax matters and book keeping
