For counsellors, psychologists, coaches, psychotherapists and social workers contemplating setting up their own practice

The current pandemic certainly has people thinking about the way they work and how they want to work. Many have found that WFH is not only a good set up for an employee of a company, but some are also exploring other options, such as working for oneself.

As appealing as it might sound, being your own boss can be overwhelming and an anxiety causing endeavour. A dilemma faced by many practitioners in human helping professions – can I work in the business and on the business. Although an entirely different set of skills and knowledge is required, they can be learned.

The objective of this webinar is to provide attendees with information on the steps to take when, as a new practitioner, setting up your own business. From attending this webinar, attendees will gain a healthy understanding of:

• Suitable business models;

• New business start-up checklist;

• Business strategy development;

• Business and services marketing; and

• Accessible support.

This webinar will have a hands-on component, and the participant will have the opportunity to go through business strategy design using a provided one-page template.
