Running your own private practice takes more than an advanced degree, memberships in professional psychology organizations, and the ability to be a good therapist. And while your continuing education and training may be useful, setting up and managing a successful practice is a matter of business and organizational know-how as much as professional proficiency.

If you're opening your own private practice or want to run your existing practice more efficiently, Private Practice Made Simple is designed to be your guide. This book offers tips on everything from getting client referrals and creating a positive and comfortable office atmosphere to building a strong and thriving therapy practice that can serve both you and your clients. You'll learn how to attract clients as a new therapist and how to manage your practice as it grows.

You can also access a set of online forms that accompany the book. These are not restricted to purchasers, however, and can be accessed here.

Interested in a more personal approach? I also offer one-to-one consultations in person, by telephone, or via skype at the equivalent of my standard clinical rate (plus GST/HST for Canadian practitioners). Contact me for details and to book a session.

You can also take my online course based on the book. This course is designed with the Canadian mental health practitioner in mind, but will likely prove helpful for practitioners in other jurisdictions as well. See the preview below or go directly to psychologysalon.teachable.com where you will find the course Private Practice in Canada.
