Josephine Hughes discusses marketing in private practice

“You’ve helped me see that I really am good enough, that I deserve my space in this profession, that I can be here and I can be seen.”

Emma Thompson

“You’ve kept me focused, supported, heard and given permission to be human – truly priceless.”

Tracie Clark

“Josephine has really helped me with my confidence and to feel less alone within my practice.  She has given me lots of ideas and direction.  Because of Josephine’s wise words and compassionate approach I have been able to slow down, take a step back and really explore what it is I want.  What she has taught me about imposter syndrome has been invaluable.”

Polly Stanley

“I have learnt I am good enough.  I am just starting out in private practice and the advice and support from Josephine is invaluable in getting me motivated.”

Joanne Greaves

“You constantly inspire and encourage me to not only be a good enough counsellor but to not be afraid of taking bold business steps.  You’ve opened up a new playing field of possibilities – thank you.”

Margaret Dexter-Lewis

“Simply have made me feel good enough as I am.”

Geraldine Hamilton

“You inspire me to be the best me and to be brave, vocal and believe I have something important to share.”
