Supporting BACP Members into Private Practice

My Private Practice can support you in every aspect of setting up your own practice. Based on a therapeutic coaching approach to offering support, you will receive the experienced, tailored advice and guidance you need to take you step-by-step through the set-up stages and onwards to developing a thriving business. 

Run by a qualified therapist who has years of clinical private practice experience to draw on, our bespoke support will help you overcome all the fears and obstacles which have been holding you back. 

My Private Practice is centred around the principles of British Association of Counselling Professionals.  If you are registered with UKCP or NCS  and would like support, please make contact to discuss how we can still help.

Why Choose Private Practice?

Nearly 30,000 members of BACP work at least partly in private practice and that figure is growing all the time. The pandemic has pushed our profession online and clients can now choose to work with anyone, nationally, from the comfort of their own homes. The market for private work has never been bigger and this growth trend is set to continue.

But it’s easy to be put off from taking the plunge into private practice. So many excellent therapists procrastinate and stall because of lack of information, poor advice and support, fears, doubts and a wall of self-confidence worries to get past. Don’t let yourself be held back. You are in the right place to get all the support you need.

There are so many reasons people choose to set up their own private practice: 

  • autonomy of working practice
  • flexible hours and lifestyle
  • earning a good income
  • lack of employed positions
  • fatigue with volunteering
  • wanting to be a business owner
  • downscaling work into retirement
  • wanting choice and control in their working life
