About this item

This book answers the questions that therapists frequently ask about setting up and running a business. It allows readers to successfully make the journey from being trained in how to conduct professional therapy sessions to running a growing private practice.

The material covers a range of issues including: registration with HMRC, money issues, marketing, insurance, and whether to work from home or other premises. The book addresses a number of practical questions, such as: Do I have to register with the information commission? What can I count as legitimate business expenses? What mistakes should I avoid when marketing my practice? How can I easily and cheaply accept card payments from my clients? What help can I get to manage my phone calls? How can I get a website? What can I do to increase my personal safety?

As counseling in the twenty-first century changes, an increasing number of therapists are using technology to write and store notes and communicate with clients – either to arrange appointments or conduct them. The author acknowledges this trend, and while not being unaware of potential problems, he addresses practical issues around the use of technology and mentions several services, websites, and apps that he has found helpful in his business.

The demand for counseling to help people deal with their life issues has never been greater and seems to be increasing as public stigmas surrounding it are slowly evaporating. This book offers detailed, practical advice on how to start and run a successful business in that marketplace.
