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.
What You Get with the ACPPO
Focussing on What's Possible for Us
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!
No problem. Simply connect with me using the Messenger chat icon or if you prefer, we can have a quick ZOOM. You can book that here:
The ACPPO is a new group, having been established on 21st November 2020 and so joining now means that you'll have the opportunity to help shape the content, features and services that will be rolled out over coming weeks and months.

Grow Your Private Practice!
I know what it's like to be in private practice (yep, I started in the early 90's) so I absolutely appreciate the importance of getting your name and brand out there. After all, if you aren't getting referrals or making bookings, you have a hobby, not a private practice, right? So here's I'm going to support you. The ACPP encourages you to run PD events, to advertise your roles, to market your practice and more.
Professional Development: Give & Take
The ACPP is a great place to be. One of things we offer in-house, in the FB group is the opportunity to complete your PD requirements - free of charge. Yep. That's right. And if you want to deliver PD to the group, I absolutely want to support you in doing that. Click through for more information.
I'd love to know more about where you're at on your journey with private practice because this will help me to provide you with information, resources and training on things that will actually help you.
It's my highest intention to be give you what you need in order to progress the practice. So please feel free to pop in here any time and share you thoughts with me.
Thank you so much,
If you need a little extra guidance around private practice, I'm here to help and it won't cost you anything. Simply book the session on ZOOM, we can have a quick chat, I'll help you and if you feel called to do so, it would be appreciated if you provided a little testimonial. How does that sound? Fair? :-)
