Therapist Business Centre: Building a Practice

Whether you’re just starting out and looking for basic marketing tips, or whether you’ve been in practice for a long time and want to fine tune your efforts to increase traffic to your web site, this section provides some tools you may find useful in building, marketing and managing your private practice.

Considering Entering Private Practice?

Most of this section of the site is aimed at the practitioner already in private practice, or looking to build up a larger practice for which they are responsible. But some practitioners will just be considering the move into working privately and will be wondering whether they are ready for taking that plunge. In my view, the main differences between private and organizational counselling practice have very little to do with actual counselling ability and everything to do with the environment outside the counselling hour.
