With paid Counselling Jobs rare and a culture of volunteering in counselling, we can often feel frustrated once we complete our Counselling training and are looking for work.
With the costs of our training, including Supervision and Therapy, and our day to day needs, we can perhaps feel disheartened.
- If you're a newly qualified counsellor and can't find a counselling job that pays,
- if you're frustrated with the culture of volunteering that our profession has, and
- if you think that Private Practice is what you want to do – or must do to keep a roof over your and your family's head,
then this Online event is for you.
Alison is an experienced Therapy Business Coach, Independent Counsellor, and Counselling Supervisor, who has helped many therapists decide if Private Practice is for them, and if it is – help them gain confidence in running a business alongside being a fabulous counsellor.
In the UK, counselling is an unregulated profession – anyone can call themselves a counsellor, create a website and FaceBook page, and get clients. Scary!
As someone who has been through many years of training, you may have been told you're not qualified to be an independent counsellor in private practice. Well – possibly. However, for Alison, it's not as clear cut.
In this conversation, we will discuss what is needed to be fit for private practice, to be an independent counsellor. And, if we're not fit yet, what our next steps could be.
