Event description
This workshop will give you confidence to take the first steps into private practice.

About this Event

This workshop is designed for newly qualified counsellors. It will give you confidence to take the first steps in your counselling career now that you are qualified. We will look at various practical areas that may not have been covered in your initial training but which are vital to the success of your new career and helpful to your own wellbeing.

Or, you may already have some experience as a counsellor working within an organisation. You may be thinking about taking the first steps to start your own private practice and need to consider some practical issues for the first time.

This workshop will look at the following areas:

  • Contracts/GDPR
  • Paperwork/Record Keeping
  • Basic Tax
  • How do I know if I can work with a client?
  • Starting out in Private Practice-First Steps.
  • Some of the challenges of working with clients
  • Where do I advertise?
  • Networking
  • Online Counselling
  • Self-care
  • Insurance

About the Facilitator - Alison GallacherAfter 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.
