RT Counselling/ Next Chapter Therapies presents… Setting up in private practice.

Tuesday 10th September & Saturday 21st September 2024, 10.00am - 5.00pm.

Many intelligent and dynamic trainees or qualified therapists have an excellent comprehension of the training they have undertaken but do not necessarily have business acumen.  

This is where I can help. Having run a successful photographic business for over twelve years, I was prepared to set up my private practice. Within the first six months of graduating as a Psychotherapeutic Counsellor and Hypnotherapist, I was generating an income that supported my young family. 

This comprehensive one-day training equips you with all the information you need to set up and be successful in the realm of mental health services across all modalities and industries.

My mission is to enable you to do the same…
