This workshop will address the practical steps to becoming a private practitioner and the implications of being self-employed, with particular reference to running a private practice in which you are dealing directly with the client. It will cover:

    • Practical aspects of setting up private work
    • Professional and financial responsibilities
    • Risk and safety issues when working privately
    • Contracting with clients

We will also consider some other issues that are specific to the business of body-oriented, movement-based psychotherapy (including dance movement psychotherapy and dramatherapy). There will be the opportunity to explore personal strengths and areas for development in relation to working privately with clients.

The workshop is available for qualified therapists with full professional UK membership.
