Why do so many practitioners experiment with seeing a few private clients but never make a wholehearted commitment to independent practice?
This peer-led colloquium will discuss the experience of cognitive-behavioural therapists who are already seeing some private clients. We’ll adjust our agenda depending on the requirements of those attending, but we expect to cover topics such as: becoming established and growing a client base; different business models for working with colleagues; and closing down your practice on retirement. Other issues we may address are: how we motivate ourselves in the relative isolation of independent practice; how we find CPD that is relevant to us; and how we develop a diverse caseload, across a range of presenting concerns, when so much of the work immediately available relates to road traffic accidents.
Put another way, this is an event for curmudgeonly practitioners who've seen it all, know it all, and, just occasionally, get tired of it all.
Registration and tea and coffee will be available from 1pm, and a drink will be provided mid session. Please note, lunch is not provided. The colloquium will begin at 1.30pm.
This event will be facilitated by IPSIG committee members.
Places are strictly limited.
