  • Starting out in Private Practice-First Steps.
  • Some of the challenges of working with clients
  • Where do I advertise?
  • Online & Telephone Counselling
  • Networking
  • CPD/Supervision
  • Self-care
  • Insurance

Presenter: Alison Gallacher
After many years of working in education (primary, further and higher) I have retrained as a counsellor to pursue my passion for helping people.

As a COSCA accredited counsellor I now work with individuals and couples, primarily within my own private practice.

When I qualified as a counsellor it was easy to feel isolated and unsupported. Who do I ask for advice? How do I know I’m doing the right thing? Do I have what it takes?

I am passionate about helping other counsellors make the first steps with more confidence that I had.
