This participatory workshop introduces trainee and qualified counselling professionals to fundamental elements of building a successful counselling service within the expanding social enterprise sector. We will look at personal and professional qualities of the “entrepreneur-practitioner.” Areas of operational knowledge required to promote service sustainability in our era of mental health contract outsourcing will be briefly described, such as human resources and client records management.
This workshop is suitable for therapists with no prior business experience, who may be thinking of expanding their work beyond private practice or corporate employment.
