I remember the nightmare of setting up in private practice over 30 years ago… I had just finished my training at Metanoia in Ealing ,was in placements in Feltham and at British Airways and working for a number of EAPs..
I felt I had some experience,but not in going it alone!! I knew it was what I wanted to do but at the same time I wondered how I would manage on my own…Scary stuff
On the one hand the business side of it and on the other, how to provide a service that would be caring and professional and would not cause harm to my clients. I remember my very first private client and the anxiety I felt… it seemed a very lonely place. I am sure most of us in private practice remember that very first session and that first private client
This 3 hour workshop is aimed at those of you who would like to hear more about the preparation I did (and the bits I missed!!) and to work out what it is that you hope to offer and how to go about it.
We will have some small group discussion,some bigger group discussion and an open Q&A time
I will have handouts for those of you who attend that that you can take with you. These will include headers on what I would and would not do when setting up private practice… the sorts of things I discuss with my supervisees
I will invite you to bring your ideas and concerns
