Counselors, psychotherapists, and psychologists are proud to belong to the helping professions. They will have invested much time, money and effort into becoming well trained in their chosen profession, but perhaps not in how to conduct a business.
These professionals see themselves as caring people trying to help others to understand themselves better, to feel better about themselves, and to help them get over various traumas and difficulties in their lives or personalities. Talking about money and thinking of their clients as an item of income can be uncomfortable. Many counselors, psychotherapists, and psychologists may not easily view their private practice as a business. But that is what it is, and the primary role of any business is to be profitable.
The author guides us through practicalities of setting up and maintaining a private practice, and addresses the tensions and problems faced by the practitioner trying to both provide care and run an effective business. The author provides clear models and examples that the practitioners will be able to adapt to their own circumstances, for example showing them how to set up accounts.
This book will be a valuable tool for new practitioners setting up on their own, as well as throughout the life of a private practice.
