The Private Practitioner - is there any help out there?

Being in the business of therapy can sometimes be a lonely place.

While the Private Practice Hub is continually updated with tips, tools and resources on all aspects of running your successful practice, you may occasionally find yourself in need of some expert support or advice along the way. Perhaps you need more in depth information on a specific aspect of your therapy business, some software to streamline your business processes or even a little coaching.In these instances it can often be hard to know who’s best to turn to, and where you’ll find the support you need.

With this in mind we’ve collated a small directory of trusted coaches, trainers, suppliers and resources that you may find useful. This information is based on either personal experience or recommendation. If you’d like to suggest other useful resources you think we should add to this list please feel free to get in touch. Please send us details along with the reasons why you feel their services should be included on the Hub.
