We strive to bring you the tools and security you need to operate your private counselling business online.
Welcome to Counselling Network.
With our site, the stress of payments is eradicated. We offer the ability for clients to pay in advanced via our ‘session buy’ option on your profile. A client can then pay through their Paypal* or Debit/Credit card, giving you and your business peace of mind from unpaid fees of those who miss an appointment. You can set up different types of sessions, with different prices to suit certain sessions, for example:
- Early morning sessions
- Discounted price for students
- A premium fee on a weekend
- Book 5 sessions in advance, get 1 free
The possibilities are endless. Our site means you have flexible and full control of your fees and clients can easily choose the right one for them.
We have designed Counselling Network to help the right clients find you. Your profile is completely customisable to show your unique counselling business. When you register your profile, you will be asked what town/city you like to be found in. You can then customise other surrounding areas you would like to be found in. If, for example, you are based on a main road that is a number of miles away from a town but a short drive, you can still put that town in your catchment area. Clients are able to search through a number of different elements of your practice which will be included within your profile, such as:
- Your catchment area
- Speciality – such as marriage guidance, abuse, addiction
- If you speak other languages
- If your practice has disability access
Your profile is also optimised to be able to reach out to large audiences online. If you promote your business on your social media, your profile can be linked to Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn. You will also be given a ‘friendly URL’. If your name is Paul Smith then your URL will be http://www.counselling.network/counsollers/paul-smith. This is a clean, professional and accessible URL that links you to your business. It is easily included within emails, on business cards, and is more likely to be found when searching on the internet than URL’s that are filled with useless jargon.
For the first 300 counsellors, it is free for you to register for life. All you need todo is have a link on your site back to us. If you have any questions please contact us at Support@counselling.network
