0 Reviews
There are far more qualified counsellors and therapists than there are salaried posts, so many recently qualified practitioners face the challenges of working freelance. Freelance Counselling and Psychotherapy is an excellent guide on surviving and flourishing in a highly challenging field. Written by practitioners with extensive experience of the practical and emotional aspects of working independently, it covers the range of issues and choices which confront newly qualified practitioners, for example:
* Regulation, registration and accreditation
* Supervision
* Financial issues in freelance therapy
* The dynamics of competition and collaboration
This highly readable book provides an 'insider's' view of the field, and will be essential reading for trainers, established practitioners and newly qualified therapists alike.
