Are you a female counsellor who has recently gained your counselling qualification, registered with a membership body but confused about what to do next? Questioning what type of therapist you want to be? Wondering if you should you get your website up and running? Or join a directory to promote yourself? You can get lost in the analysis paralysis. Setting up your counselling practice can be scary, exciting and may bring up doubts about your ability and worthiness. Raising the age-old questions of many new business owners: ‘Can I do this? Am I ready? Do I have what it takes? I’m here to tell you, yes you can! Nearly 20 years ago, I set up my own counselling practice, which went on to win two prestigious business and marketing awards within the first 18 months of trading. I then used the skills I learnt in my own business to help charities set up successful counselling services. My name is Jeraline, and I am a relationship psychotherapist with a busy private practice in London who works with clients all over the world. I’m also a supervisor who specialises in supporting newly qualified female psychotherapists and counsellors to set up their own private practices During the lockdown, I was asked by a number of women counsellors/psychotherapists how to set up a private practice, which led me to launch Hope Twenty Seven Finishing School. It’s a safe place, where newly qualified women counsellors can enrol to work on their business skills and mindset to flourish in private practices geared towards their values and attract clients aligned to them. The Finishing School will get you out of the perfectionism and procrastination which may be keeping you in a rut, and help you to take the right action at the right time, so your practice can really start to move forward. I aim to encourage you to challenge your fears or self-doubt about putting yourself out there and start seeing yourself as a business owner. Whatever you need help with, either we will cover it in one of the eight master classes, or you can ask me. You will receive professional guidance to deal with any issue to do with your private practice. For example, should you offer one-to-one sessions, or set up private groups. Our work together will transform the ways you think and perform. You'll gain access to: Business training and support to attract aligned clients. Mindset, worthiness and self-confidence training to guide you to step into your private practice with a healthy mindset. Training on your rates and how you want to be paid. Who you want to work with. Copywriting support and guidance. Marketing support i.e. analysis, strategy, and implementation of your plan. Holistic business psychotherapy and consultancy to work through limiting beliefs. Support to work through mental blocks and your fears regarding success. Removal of any doubt about embracing being YOU, powerfully, fully and authentically in your newly successful practice. Real life one-to-one support with a mentor, with 20 years’ experience, who will guide and support you through the stages of getting the practical things done.
During your sessions, we will have deep one-on-one talks where you will get a personal service on not only how to market your therapy business, but also how to address potential generational monetary issues. Such issues can revolve around a number of factors, i.e. your class, race, gender, family trauma etc., and how these impact on how much you value your time and relationship with money. We will discuss things that you probably wouldn’t have discussed on your course. Your private practice is not only a space to enhance the quality of someone’s life and restore hope. It’s also a place for you to experience true joy, and work in a way that is uniquely aligned to you and your values. The Finishing School will help you overcome feeling overwhelmed, ‘Imposter Syndrome’ and any other self-sabotage that creeps in.
