Australian Counsellors in Private Practice Online (ACPPO)

Australian Counsellors in Private Practice Online (ACPPO)

Welcome to the Australian Counsellors in Private Practice Online group.

You're on this private practice journey so bring your friends and colleagues, bring your people with you that you want to be on this journey with. You are stronger together and in fact, when you're lone-wolfing it, you're often at risk of being distracted by the bright shiny objects, being busy and not progressing or feeling utterly overwhelmed and I don't want that for you. 

Thank you! This is EXACTLY what I've needed - a space to focus on starting my private practice without the distraction of Medicare talk.

I want to see you follow your private practice through, from set-up, to establishment and development, right through to the end because I know what's possible for you on the other side of this and how much joy you get to experience and peace of mind you get to experience when you are really creating deeper, lasting connections and relationships with peers that are just as excited about private practice and the important work you do, and who know you progress more effectively when you're supported, to getting the results and the transformations in your business.

This is a community of counsellors wanting to begin or who are already in private practice. This group provides guidance, resources, and education to help you create a private practise that deeply aligns with your values and your purpose.

Counselling is a different sector to psychology and social work and as such it requires a new, fresh, and different approach to private practice, one that’s just for us. This means an approach that helps us create an identity based on our strengths in the field, that supports us in finding our unique voice, and that helps us stake a claim in the world around us.

  • To hear how others run their private practice. Mine is bursting at the seams and I need to expand so looking for others' perspectives.

We can do all of this when we come together and share a common vision: that vision being to create the most aligned, abundant, impactful private practice we can and who knows, we might even create a practice or approach to private practice that others envy! ! I believe we all have so much to offer our clients and with the right supports in place, we can bring our gifts to the world in unique, interesting, innovative and impactful ways.

Why I Created the ACPPO

It’s my intention to provide you with those supports so that you can create and develop your private practice in harmony with your values, dreams and ethics. I’m going to be here for you with weekly ZOOM Q&A sessions where you can ask me anything you like about private practice and I’ll help you. I’ll also be present each day in the group to answer any questions, to bring you resources, to support you in sharing your story and so much more.

All I require is that we be always be respectful, kind and courteous and we focus on lifting each other up. This group does not entertain political discussions (ie Medicare) - there are other groups already providing platforms to discuss those things.  Let’s be the example of what’s possible for Counsellors when they enter private practice!

What Happens After You Join?

After you join the ACPPO, you'll be able to access the free Facebook Group and join a community of Counsellors (not Psychologists or Social Workers) and have the breathing space you need to talk about real issues that effect Counsellors AND you'll be supported in starting or working on your practice. 

Simply head over to the group and submit a Join Request and I'll add you. 

You'll also have access to in-depth support from me (Brooklyn) to help you on your private practice journey. 

If at any time you have any questions, please just ask. 

Can't wait to see you,

📞 Book A Quick Call With Brooklyn

Have a question about private practice?

I'm here to help. Every member is entitled to ONE free, 30 minute phone call with me. You can use this call to:


  • Get support on your niche;
  • Help with marketing;
  • Gain clarification on a private practice issues that's arisen
  • Name your practice;
  • Explore how to gain more referrals;
  • Manage a dilemma;
  • Or anything else that may pop up for you. 

Why are these calls free?

These calls are free because it's my highest intention to help you as much as I possibly can. These are NOT sales calls. They are structured conversations where you will be asked a set of questions (nothing intrusive or complex) so that I can help you best in the time we have. If I feel like your private practice would be likely to benefit from a service I offer, I will invite you to talk about it but again, you can say no. This is not a sales call. The second reason I offer them free of charge is because many times, after the call, people loop back around and ask the next day, a week later, a month later or sometimes even a year later if we can work together and I LOVE it when that happens! So, free calls simply go into my Karma Bank :-) 

All calls are confidential and provide you with a safe space to obtain clarity when you need it.
