This popular 6-hour workshop is designed to help you understand the basic foundations you should have in place when you venture into private practice as a talking professional. And this time, we've added even more extras to help you get the most out of your investment in your business development!
Over the course of the workshop, you will learn the important FIRST STEPS that you need to consider as you start out in private practice, including: thinking about being self-employed; setting up your practice; managing your money and dealing with the tax man; why you need to be insured; how to keep records and register with the Information Commissioner; how to estimate your costs and set your fees; the challenge of asking for payment; using Practice Management software, developing your referral networks and promoting your business; setting realistic goals for your business, the importance of self-care and keeping on top of CPD.
All attendees will receive a host of invaluable extras, including a recently updated copy of Colin’s ebook “Setting up in Private Practice: A guide to some of the key practical steps you need to take”, an editable spreadsheet to help you determine how to set your fees, and many templates for key documents (in WORD format, so you can make them your own) to use in your practice (e.g. sample invoice; sample therapy contract).
You will also get access to Colin's free email newsletter "Building a Successful Private Practice" and other online resources, including a weekly Accountability programme that is designed to help keep you focused on your business goals and help you maintain momentum as you move your practice forward! And if that isn't enough, all participants will be invited to participate in a FREE 1 hour online group coaching session with Colin 4-6 weeks following the workshop to help you maintain your focus and answer new questions that may have come up for you afterwards!
All these extras would cost at least another £150 + usually, but everything is included in your one-off workshop fee!
Topics you will cover include:
The workshop will benefit talking professionals - psychologists, therapists, counsellors, coaches and others - looking to explore the world of private practice; those who have started seriously considering this option and even those who have started on a small scale and want to look at how they might move things forward. Book now - GLASGOW / BRISTOL / LEEDS - to make sure you can take advantage of Colin's expert support.
