How to Set Up a Private Practice – Online Workshop
Learn how to build a thriving private practice business on your own time, at your own pace.
Private Practice allows you to work for yourself, set your own hours, pick your own clients and have greater freedom and control over your future and finances.
However, it’s not for everyone.
Because being an effective therapist doesn’t prepare you for being a successful business owner.
Luckily running a successful practice is something you can learn, even if you have no prior business experience.

About the Presenter: Constance Lynn Hummel, MA
I empower therapists and counsellors just like you, to create profitable practices that reflect their lifestyle and values, so you can quit worrying about the business details and focus on what matters most, helping your clients grow.
I am a Registered Clinical Counsellor, Canadian Certified Counsellor and Associate Power Coach with my own full-time private practice in Vancouver B.C. In my clinical practice, I specialize in Relationships, Sex Therapy and Addiction, with specific expertise working with Adult Children of Alcoholics.
My practice was full within six months of launching, and I want the same for you. I truly believe that as a therapist and counsellor, taking control and running your business instead of letting your business run you allows you to better serve your clients and lead a more balanced life.
I want to help you do that. You don’t have to do it alone.
Find out what to do first, what can wait, what you can’t live without,
and confidently know what to do next.

“What I found most valuable was how Constance drilled down to the fine details of identifying clientele, finding the right office location, and building a personal brand. Constance left no stone unturned, I left her workshop feeling confident and motivated. I highly recommend her workshop to anyone that is looking to build a successful private practice.”
The workshop was everything I was hoping for and more! Constance shares some great tips on starting and running a private practice. I really appreciated that she shared her personal journey of practice with us. I learned a lot!
“What I walked away with from the workshop was confidence in my business skills, as I realized I had put a lot of things in place already that Constance was speaking about. At the same time I became quickly aware of what was lacking within my business.This came mostly from Constance’s willingness to share her own experiences of what to do, and what not to do when going into business by oneself. Some of what I learnt was very subtle and things I don’t think I would have thought about myself. I am very grateful to Constance for sharing her knowledge with so many of us in the same profession. I would highly recommend taking future courses from her. I myself look forward to taking more workshops by Constance.”
“Honestly, it was just what I was looking for! This workshop provided a step by step overview of all logistical and strategic details of setting up a private practice. It really did satisfy all my needs.”
