Home Study Course

CPM Home Study

Are you a Counsellor, Psychotherapist or Psychologist – or studying to become one?
Do you love what you do but find the business side of things a bit daunting?
Are you struggling to fill your practice with clients?

It took me more than three years of full-time private practice to catch up with and exceed my salary in employment. And I had to learn to become comfortable with all the professional and personal issues self-employment raised.

In 1994 I wrote a manual called ‘Setting Up Your Own Private Practice in Counselling and Psychotherapy’ which was ground-breaking and remained for many years the only UK publication of its type and format dealing with private practice.  It was, and still is, used extensively in workshops and training courses.

In 2005, in collaboration with Stephen Palmer and Christine Wilding, my original teach-yourself manual was transformed into a more in-depth book. This became ‘The Essential Skills for Setting Up a Counselling and Psychotherapy Practice’ and has sold hundreds of copies worldwide.

But times and technologies change, even in a few short years.  The internet is here to stay – and it’s a wonderful place to learn and share knowledge.  I believe it offers a great opportunity to update and improve upon what’s gone before.

The ‘Counselling Practice Matters Home Study Course’ is my newest and extended work which has been brought right up to date.  In it I guide you each step along the path to set up and build your own successful private practice. You can follow and complete each activity in the guide at your own pace.

Here’s a sample of what you’ll learn inside this definitive Course:

  • The 5 qualities of a successful business person  (page 10)CPM Home Study
  • How to set up a simple cashflow forecast   (page 45)
  • The insurance implications of working from home   (page 80)
  • A daily procedure to record income and expenditure  (page 54)
  • 9 ways to market your practice  (page 72)
  • Accreditation and Ethical considerations  (page 94)
  • Managing and prioritising your time  page 99)
  • and much, MUCH more!

Today there are many more new counsellors and psychotherapists setting off on the exciting road of opening their private practice and becoming self-employed. If you’re one of them, this Home Study Course is one way you can benefit from all my experiences.
