You enjoyed - no, LOVED! - your counselling training: it changed your life. You soaked up the knowledge, theory and skills like a dry sponge.
You imagined a life where you'd use everything you'd learned to help clients grow and develop, make peace with their past and step into a world of greater contentment and self acceptance.

And hey, guess what? Volunteering doesn't pay the bills.
Frankly, this hacks me off.
I am passionate about my work as a counsellor, and I'm passionate about the counselling profession.
But unless we value ourselves, our time, our knowledge and our skills and learn how to attract our ideal clients, all the time, money and effort you put into your years of expensive training will have been wasted.
Before becoming a counsellor I ran two other successful small businesses.
Over time I've learnt – very often by my mistakes! – about marketing, branding, niches, blogging, websites, social media, costing, planning and multiple income streams, along with achieving a work/life balance.
I will work with you to look at where you are now, where you want to be and what needs to happen to get you there.
I bring my 15+ years experience of running small businesses and my 12+ years of being a counsellor to identify both strengths and areas that need working on, and I will support you every step of the way.
I work with ambitious, proactive people who are serious about their business, and are committed to achieving private practice success.
Is that you?
