Working in private, independent practice is not an easy option when compared to regular paid employment. The challenges and risks are in fact arguably greater, and the skills required to be successful are considerably broader and are not taught as part of one’s training. This compact textbook offers the trainee and beginning practitioner all the hands-on advice and support they could wish for in successfully planning, setting up and running their own practice.

Whether setting up your own independent practice, or an experienced practitioner reflecting on what is required to maintain a professional and ethical independent practice, this is the perfect guide to embarking on this extraordinary and rewarding journey. An in-depth and practical guide to working independently, this is an indispensable tool for both counselling and psychotherapy trainees considering their career options post-qualification, and established practitioners looking to refine their practice and revisit their skills in light of changing ambitions and circumstances.
