"Counsellors from a psychodynamic and psychoanalytical background will feel very at home with the contents. I found it a thoroughly enjoyable read;it actually made me laugh out loud on a couple of occasions. I found the anecdotes entertaining and well chosen; any therapist who has been in practice for a while will be able to identify with them." Therapy Today review, February 2013 "This book is a marvel! Packed with truly vital information both for the newly qualified and for the experienced therapist in private practice. The frequent vignettes and discussions are a delight, bringing a range of complex and challenging technical issues to life. This book gives an engaging and practical insight into what is usually the very private world of private practice." Susanna Abse, CEO, The Tavistock Centre for Couple Relationships, London, UK "The book takes seriously the needs of therapists throughout their professional life - the need for developing support systems and care of the therapist's well being, looking after their bodies as well as minds ... In the Foreword Susie Orbach describes the book as a gift to the profession and I agree." Oxford Psychotherapy Bulletin "Although addressed primarily to psychotherapists and counsellors, practically every page of this book applies equally to the practice of complementary medicine - acupuncture, osteopathy and so on - and it is essential reading for these practitioners. For it teaches, in far more depth than their training ever does, just what it means to be a therapist; and the book's clarity and wisdom will enhance the work done in any treatment room." John Hamwee, Acupuncturist and author of Energy Medicine and Acupuncture for New Practitioners "I have often wondered just what goes on in therapy between psychotherapists and their clients in the secrecy of the consulting room. This book gives me an intriguing, bird's eye view from inside the room of how and why the process works." Lisa Jayne Bloomer, Lisa Jayne Art Studio, UK "A highly experienced and deeply wise practitioner of psychotherapy, Pauline Hodson serves as the most trustworthy of guides and mentors, providing mental health professionals with a cornucopia of illuminating advice about the crucial minutiae of our work. Written with admirable concision and with the page-turning delights of a fine novel, this book will be a joy for seasoned colleagues, and a life-saver for students and for those newly qualified. The Business of Therapy: How to Succeed in Private Practice leaves all other contenders in the dust!" Professor Brett Kahr, Centre for Child Mental Health in London and Roehampton University, UK "I wish this marvellous book had come my way earlier. It's an essential read for any therapeutic practitioner, but particularly for those in their first years in the profession or who are still in training. Pauline Hodson has applied her extensive experience and 'know how' to create this valuable tool kit that covers all the practicalities, and much more, of running a private practice or clinic. Written with great heart but also in a boundaried psychodynamic style, The Business of Therapy is practical, wise and down to earth without ever being prescriptive. It's a pleasure to recommend it." Carol Leader, Psychoanalytic Psychotherapist (BPC and UKCP) Creating a comfortable consulting room, grappling with the thorny question of money, finding clients, paperwork, legal issues, boundaries and confidentiality - Pauline Hodson analyses both the psychological and practical issues which need to be addressed when setting up a private practice. Once your practice is established it is important to be able to anticipate and think about situations that impinge on the therapy: illness, holidays, neighbours, pets and children, which if not paid attention to, can destroy the safe environment necessary for effective and sensitive work to take place. The Business of Therapy gives both detailed anecdotes and a jargon free overview of the theory and practice of the work of therapists. It is a much needed handbook for all those who work with clients in the privacy of a consulting room - and for all those who are curious about what therapy actually involves. This book is a valuable resource for psychotherapists and counsellors, for graduates setting up in private practice, for established practitioners and for those planning retirement. With a foreword by Susie Orbach.
The Business of Psychotherapy
When you think of arts therapy, you don't often associate the practice with profit; however, ethical economic models are essential in allowing clients the most access to arts therapy services. Art therapists don't generally have formal training in economics, which can be challenging when developing their professional services. This book offers the fundamentals of micro and macro economics that apply to creating a sustainable and ethical business model that supports the development of the arts therapies profession worldwide. Through economic theory and international case studies, the authors consider the business side of therapeutic arts service with recommendations for developing an ethical and sustainable practice. With key insights and informative examples, this book will serve as a guide for small business owners looking to develop their arts therapy practice.
Although the impact that clients can have on therapists is well-known, most work on the subject consists of dire warnings: mental health professionals are taught early on to be on their guard for burnout, compassion fatigue, and countertransference. However, while these professional hazards are very real, the scholarly focus on the negative potential of the client-counselor relationship often implies that no good can come of allowing oneself to get too close to a client's issues. This sentiment obscures what every therapist knows to be true: that the client-counselor relationship can also effect powerful positive transformations in a therapist's own life. The Client Who Changed Me is Jeffrey Kottler and Jon Carlson's testimony to the significant and often life-changing ways in which therapists have been changed by their patients. Kottler and Carlson draw not only upon their own extensive experience - between them, they have more than fifty years in the field - but also upon lengthy interviews with dozens of the country's foremost therapists and theorists. This novel work presents readers with a truly unique perspective on the business of therapy: not merely how it appears externally, but how practitioners experience it internally. Although these stories paint a complex and multi-layered portrait of the client-counselor relationship, they all demonstrate the profound and unexpected rewards that the profession has to offer.
The rapid growth of behavior therapy over the past 20 years has been well doc umented. Yet the geometric expansion of the field has been so great that it deserves to be recounted. We all received our graduate training in the mid to late 1960s. Courses in behavior therapy were then a rarity. Behavioral training was based more on informal tutorials than on systematic programs of study. The behavioral literature was so circumscribed that it could be easily mastered in a few months of study. A mere half-dozen books (by Wolpe, Lazarus, Eysenck, Ullmann, and Krasner) more-or-Iess comprised the behavioral library in the mid- 1960s. Semirial works by Ayllon and Azrin, Bandura, Franks, and Kanfer in 1968 and 1969 made it only slightly more difficult to survey the field. Keeping abreast of new developments was not very difficult, as Behaviour Research and Therapy and the Journal of Applied Behavior Analysis were the only regular outlets for behavioral articles until the end of the decade, when Behavior Therapy and Be havior Therapy and Experimental Psychiatry first appeared. We are too young to be maudlin, but "Oh for the good old days!" One of us did a quick survey of his bookshelves and stopped counting books with behavior or behavioral in the titles when he reached 100. There were at least half again as many behavioral books without those words in the title.

One of the most powerful factors in therapy is that it involves the intensive relationship between two (or more) human beings. The issues of transparency and self-disclosure therefore become important concerns for therapists; how can they use themselves effectively in their work without transgressing on professional regulations? These issues and concerns are addressed in this new edition of The Use of Self in Therapy by experienced therapists, who share their own wisdom, research, and experiences in valuable ways. Disregarding methodology or approach, the authors demonstrate how to train and develop the self and person of the therapist as a powerful adjunct to successful therapy. They enable practitioners to become more effective in helping their clients to realize and regain their own powers of healing and healthy recovery. This 3rd edition also examines the impact of increasing professional regulation, as well as the impact of the internet and social media on the conduct of therapy. Also new to this edition are discussions of how therapists can use themselves in cultures that are less individually-oriented. This book is a valuable addition to any therapist’s library and therapy supervisor’s teaching arsenal.
