Toolkit for those new solo (counselling/social work/psychology) private practice in Sydney:

  • Insurance! If you’re a social worker, the easiest way is through the Australian Association of Social Workers membership.
  • Client Records Management System – the recommended two are PowerDiary or Halaxy.
  • A separate bank account for business transactions.
  • Accounting software. I recommend Xero!
  • Video conferencing software – PowerDiary comes with it’s own but Zoom’s quality is better so I tend to use Zoom.
  • ABN
  • Branding including logo
  • Website – a one page website will all relevant info and your photo is fine.
  • PsychologyToday and GoodTherapy profiles
  • Monthly (at least!) clinical supervision
  • Bookkeeper/accountant
