Hi, I'm Dr Colin Clerkin, the person behind Your Practice Coach. I'm a clinical psychologist and business coach, with nearly 25 years post-qualification experience as a jobbing therapist, first in the UK's NHS, and then, for the past 15 years, in my own private practice, based in Chester, in North West England.
I've built up my therapy practice from scratch and now am pleased to report that I have a busy personal practice, but I also employ psychologists and associate therapists to provide a wide-ranging service to children and adults, both privately and through contracts with local NHS services. I have also created a community of therapists around my business by opening consulting rooms where other independent practitioners can see their clients and we can share supervision and support both formally and informally.
Shortly after I first started out, people began asking me how they could start their own practices, so I trained as a business coach and, since 2007, I have been running workshops on "How to Get Started in Private Practice" all across the UK, as well as offering 1-to-1 coaching on building their private practice to a wide range of professions, including Psychologists, Psychiatrists, Counsellors and CBT Therapists. To date, I have guided hundreds of therapists in making their private practice dreams a reality.
Your Practice Coach is my way of taking my updated and wide-ranging training and making it available even more widely online. I hope you find what you need here, but if you have questions, you are always welcome to contact me directly - [email protected] - for further guidance.
