I've qualified as a counsellor - what do I do now?
This workshop is designed for newly qualified counsellors. It will give you confidence to take the first steps in your counselling career now that you are qualified. We will look at various practical areas that may not have been covered in your initial training but which are vital to the success of your new career and helpful to your own well-being.
Or, you may already have some experience as a counsellor working within an organisation. You may be thinking about taking the first steps to start your own private practice, and need to consider some practical issues for the first time.
This workshop will look at the following areas:
- paperwork/record keeping
- basic tax
- how do I know if I can work with a client?
- starting out in private practice - first steps
- some of the challenges of working with clients
- where do I advertise?
