If you're a member of a professional body like the Australian Counselling Association, the Australian Hypnotherapists Association, or a myriad of others, then you will need to do a certain number of supervision hours each year. Supervision is valuable for so many reasons; the maintenance of safe and ethical work practices, personal growth, and accountability to name just a few. Working with a supervisor who will support you in the way that you need is important too. Here are some thoughts on this, as well as a bit of a promo on a forthcoming program that includes supervision for therapists.
Running the business side of a practice takes a range of specialist skills, all of which you may not have. Obviously you are good at what you do, but expertise in the social media space, knowledge about branding, marketing, accounting, book work, and web design? Thankfully you don't have to know and do it all, in fact most business coaches suggest that you focus on what you're good at, and outsource the rest.
