Get Your Private Practice Fully Booked

Find your purpose, your voice and your clients

  • Do you feel envious of other counsellors who are filling their practice with clients and wish you could too?
  • Do you have ideas about what you’d like to get done, but find it all a bit overwhelming and you’re not sure where to start?
  • Do you find it hard to be working it out all on your own?

If you’ve ever thought that you’d like a successful practice but that somehow, it’s not for people like you, I’ve got news for you.

You can do it!

Josephine Hughes discusses marketing in private practice

  • Step-by-step guides

    So you can set up an ethical practice (including key policies, contracts & insurance) – meaning you can focus on helping clients without worrying about being reported to your membership body

  • Ready-to-go marketing advice  

    So you can attract the types of clients you love working with – even if you’re not keen on social media and networking – and get them booked in

  • Support from other therapists

    So you can thrive in your professional practice rather than feel isolated and alone

Full with a Waiting List

I have found it very helpful.  My private practice is full with a waiting list

I have had new enquiries who have accepted the only appointment I offered them ( keeping my boundaries!) and am working at full capacity😊.

Snowed Under with Work

I am absolutely snowed under with work so seemingly I am successful in private practice!

I have been approached by so many companies, my local council AND I’m turning down private clients.

I cannot thank you enough for your epic help. I truly needed every iota of your brilliance and the group is beyond supportive

Is this right for you?


The Therapy Growth Group is ideal for you if:

  • You’ve got a private practice and you’d like more clients
  • You don’t have a private practice yet but you’d love support in getting started
  • You have a thriving private practice and
    … you want to network with other therapists
    … you want to learn even more effective marketing techniques
    … you want to develop a new area of work such as an online course, CPD, or setting up a group practice

The Therapy Growth Group is NOT for you if:

  • You’re unwilling to be coached and take action
  • You don’t want to work with a group of supportive counsellors
  • You don’t have a recognised counselling qualification that includes 100 hours placement

Actionable, practical advice to overcome the blocks and find your clients

You probably already know a lot of the “stuff” you have to do – you’ve probably read all about it in Facebook groups and watched in awe at other counsellors implementing it.

But it doesn’t seem to work for you.

You’ve written the profile and the website but you’re not getting clients.

That’s disheartening because you know it’s possible – other people manage it – so what’s the problem with you?

There is no problem with you.  You just need some help.

That’s what my Therapy Growth Group is all about.  It’s about helping you to overcome the blocks that are holding you back. In the Therapy Growth Group: 

You’ll take action on your business goals

…so that you’ll feel empowered and make your dreams a reality.  You’ll stop being paralysed by procrastination.  You’ll stop waiting for the solution and you’ll create your own.

You’ll make peace with your inner critic and get on with your marketing

…so that you actually get started and make real progress. You’ll be able to take your eye off the little details and get out there! Because if you’re paralyzed with fear of being imperfect, the people who need your help will never find you.

You’ll get the confidence to get clients 

… so that you’ll stop feeling stuck in a rut comparing yourself to others. You’ll learn what makes YOU uniquely able to attract clients. You’ll focus on being you and your OWN track! And that means you’ll focus on the clients that you can help and what they need.

Does that sound like something you need?

I’m Over the Moon!

I have loved being in the group, surrounded by wonderful inspiring people. It has made me feel less alone in my work, part of a ‘club’ and helped me to feel good about myself and the work I do. It’s like a BIG HUG 🙂

I won 3 months membership just as I was planning to leave my part time job, left my job and within 2 months of leaving I went from around 6/7 clients a week to having a full practice of 18 clients….couldn’t have done that without the guidance and support of your coaching calls, Facebook group and the wonderful therapists in the group! I’m over the moon!

You can, do this

The community is lovely, very supportive and just a great gang of people!


I have really enjoyed being a part of the Therapy Growth Group this year.  Josephine is always warm, approachable and knowledgeable and having attended some of the coaching calls, they have spurred me into getting things done.  The daily posts are thought provoking and the community is lovely, very supportive and just a great gang of people!  If you’re considering it, do it – as a gift to yourself, it will, without doubt, improve the way that you look at yourself in your business.

I am happy receiving so many more enquirers


You have helped me become more ‘visible’ and my confidence has rocketed! Until I worked with you I was just wandering aimlessly but now I feel I am really ‘turning up’ with my clients.  I am happy receiving so many more enquirers and more turning into regular clients.  Thanks so much for all you do to encourage us.  I always highly recommend you.

Frequently Asked Questions

I’m not in Private Practice yet – can I still join?

There’s a Setting Up in Private Practice course.  Join and work through the modules on mindset, business and professional issues, and data protection (GDPR).

What Days and Times are the Zoom Calls?

  • Planning and Training on Mondays at 1pm
  • Working Together on Wednesdays at 10.30am
  • Peer Supervision and Networking on Thursdays at 8.00pm
  • Chat on Fridays at 5.00pm

But don’t worry if you can’t make those times.  See the next question.

I Won’t Be Able to Attend All Those Calls – Does that Matter?

The training and planning coaching calls will be recorded and available in the group so that you can catch up.  You are also able to ask questions in the Facebook group and I will answer them there or in the calls.

For confidentiality purposes, the networking and peer supervision are not recorded.

Occasionally the schedule of calls may change due to holidays.

Do I Have to Join the Facebook Group?

No, some people prefer to attend just the calls.  You can watch recordings and courses via the Therapy Growth Group website and you can access them there.  

How Much Does the Therapy Growth Group Cost?

£50, the equivalent of about one client session a month for which you’ll get 10 hours of calls and access to all the training and the community. How awesome is that?  Therapy Growth Group is the gift to yourself that just keeps on giving – because you’ll be able to build your private practice and go on getting clients for years.

Once you have joined – for as long as you continue in membership – you will not receive a price increase in your subscription.

Is It Safe to Pay Online?

My payments are handled securely by Stripe which is a recognised online payment provider.

 What If I Change My Mind?

You simply cancel your subscription before your next payment is due.  There is no minimum subscription period and you’ll receive a reminder before you’re debited.  You’re in charge.

It is scary to sign up to a coaching programme and to commit yourself.  Please talk to me if you have any concerns or worries as these are often part of the process.
