What are you worth? Money mindset for counsellors and therapists
Does putting a price on providing therapeutic help make you feel uncomfortable? Do you dread chasing up late payments or enforcing your cancellation policy?
One of the biggest challenges we face as counsellors and therapists is balancing our desire to help people with our need to make a reasonable wage. Money is an emotive subject for all of us. Our upbringing, culture and demographics all play a huge part in how comfortable (or uncomfortable!) we feel about making money.
Deciding how much money to ask for can raise all sorts of feelings about our self-worth, social conscience and professional competency. We do a job where the learning never stops; as such, many of us struggle with imposter syndrome or not feeling good enough, and this has an impact on how we value what we do.
Tamara Howell and Sarah Dosanjh are teaming up to bring you a highly interactive CPD course exploring our relationship with money. We will be looking at:
- What money really is and why we have such complex feelings about it.
- Our childhood, culture and demographics and how they affect our relationship with money.
- How to make therapeutic help more accessible without lowering our income.
- Fee setting, cancellations and chasing up payments.
By the end of this workshop, you will have had the opportunity to uncover some of your deep-seated beliefs about money and will be ready to set you financial intentions for 2021.
