Grow My Practice- How to set up, market, grow and build a thriving private therapy practice

“We help counsellors and therapists set up and grow their own Private Practice”- Martin Hogg MBACP

Discover how hundreds of counsellors and therapists across the UK and Ireland have set up and grown successful Therapy Businesses using the Grow My Practice Programme.

Our ‘How to set up, grow, market and develop your ethical Private Practice’ is suitable for 6 hours CPD credits and has been a popular BACP endorsed course

Origins of the Grow My Practice Course

Martin Hogg on local radio

Martin Hogg on local radioAs a Coach and Counsellor myself I set up the Grow My Practice programme to help people like you assist more future clients using low cost, tried and tested ways.

At first ‘Grow My Practice’ was only really open to Counsellors and Therapists at the website ‘Marketing For Counsellors’ . We found out that several clever Coaches and Hypnotherapists sneaked in and used the content to develop their private practices too.

I first spoke about Therapist Marketing at the 2009 British Association For Counselling and Psychotherapy Conference quickly followed by a debut at the 2010 Irish Association For Counselling and Psychotherapy Annual Conference.

Since then I have worked with BACP and the National Counselling Society to run over 60 live events all across the UK and Ireland, helping over twelve hundred therapists set up and grow their practice practice.

The Grow My Practice course ‘in a nutshell’

I offer simple, highly usable, practical and regularly updated content to help you develop your practice.

You can choose from our live courses and workshops, online ‘Grow My Practice’ Programme or a home study course.

You concentrate on your therapy and I’ll look after the marketing.

We are part of Citizen Coaching, a Social Enterprise based in Birmingham that reinvests profits back into local programmes to help troubled teenagers and adults

Being part of our family not only helps you but also helps our communities be a better place to live, certainly one of the reasons why I got involved in therapy in the first place. You’re in the right place and amongst supportive friends who can help you build and run a successful private practice
