Reviews and Endorsements

‘This book is packed full of practical, clear information about running a therapeutic private practice as a business. The question and answer format allows readers to access specific information easily. The voice of experience shines through and it should be essential reading for counsellors in training and for those new to private practice.’
––Julia Greer, psychoanalytic psychotherapist, couples counsellor and supervisor in private practice; senior accredited MBACP and Fellow of British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP)

‘James Rye brings his wealth of experience in an engaging and accessible way to a demanding area of practice. Working independently demands professionalism, integrity, experience, together with a commitment to ethics and self-support. This book is an invaluable resource for all considering private practice, as well as those already enjoying its challenges and opportunities.’
––Dr Andrew Reeves, BACP senior accredited counsellor and psychotherapist, BACP Fellow, senior lecturer; chair of the BACP

‘This practical book is aimed at helping counsellors, both newly qualified and in private practice already, to understand what needs to be considered and done to run a successful private counselling practice today. It is packed full of useful information, tips and sensible advice from someone who has himself had a long and successful career in private practice.’
––George Brooks, BACP accredited counsellor and supervisor

‘This is a succinct, practical and accessible guide to working in private practice. Useful, detailed information is provided throughout and serves to stimulate the reader’s reflections, whatever their experience of private practice. Whether setting up a website, accepting payments by credit card, visiting clients in residential care, meeting data storage standards, filling in a tax return or creating a professional will, James Rye’s considerable experience in the field shines through, and offers guidance to help practitioners make wise, workable decisions based on a thorough understanding of what is at stake and what options are available.’
––Dr Belinda Harris, associate professor, University of Nottingham; UKCP registered psychotherapist

‘I can think of no one better placed than James Rye to provide guidance on the setting up and running of a therapy business. This book draws on his extensive personal experience in private practice and his work supporting others in that field. James shows characteristic attention to detail, answering traditional questions, such as whether to charge for missed sessions, alongside exploring contemporary dilemmas such as maintaining a web presence. I would highly recommend this book to any therapist considering developing a private practice.’
––Susan Utting-Simon, senior accredited MBACP, psychotherapist, counsellor, and supervisor, Chair of BACP Private Practice
