We support therapists in private practice by offering courses, an online community and customisable paperwork templates. Our documents have been written in accordance with data privacy legislation and have been assessed, edited and reviewed by lawyers.

Our paperwork has been written to reflect highly professional and ethical private practice policies of counsellors and psychotherapists and can be adapted for use by nutritionists, coaches, hypnotherapists, physical therapists and medical professionals worldwide.

Using professional, ethical paperwork written in accordance with General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) requirements supports you, your client and the therapeutic relationship. Our paperwork packages provide you with confidence and peace of mind and assist clients at the beginning of their therapy journeys by offering clarity when they may especially appreciate it. Transparency and consideration set the tone of the therapeutic alliance and incorporating our documentation into your private practice offers an opportunity to model healthy boundaries.

It can take many hours of research, writing and editing to produce therapy contracts, privacy policies, consent forms, correspondence templates and internal documents.

We save you time by providing you with all of the necessary documents for a professional and ethical private practice so you can focus on building your business and working with clients.

Our templates are fully customisable with highlighted spaces to show you where to input your unique practice details. Our writing style is warm and professional and you are welcome to adapt it to reflect your own approach.

Guidance notes are provided and once you have individualised your documents, you can start using them straight away.

All of our paperwork templates have been assessed, edited and reviewed by lawyers in the United Kingdom. Our GDPR Policies Package can be used with clients in the UK and European Union and you are welcome to purchase any paperwork from abroad. Please visit our FAQs page for further information.

Who writes the templates?

Tamara Howell is a psychotherapist in private practice at 127 Harley St, London. She began this project in 2018 with the help of several researchers, assistants and colleagues in the therapy field. Her previous career as a Lloyd’s insurance broker taught her the importance of preparation, legal compliance and adhering to regulatory guidelines.

After completely rewriting her own paperwork, some colleagues requested templates so they could focus on client work and reduce their administrative workloads. She spent over a year compiling the first customisable package available for purchase, working directly with lawyers to ensure legal compliance. Tamara continues to support therapists in setting up and growing their private practices through coaching, her online professional community, conference presentations and online courses.

“I believe that being mindful and clear about the terms of our interaction with clients can make beginning the therapy process easier for them. When we are confident in our practice policies, we take care of our clients, ourselves and the therapeutic alliance. If you have taken any of my courses or read my blog posts, you will know that I advocate for clarity and accessibility in our policies and paperwork. I offer examples, discussion and invite participants to join our online communitiesfor feedback and collaboration.

How we created our documents...

We offer customisable templates for counsellors, psychotherapists and other health practitioners to use with clients based in the United Kingdom.  Our documents have been written in accordance with Data Privacy legislation and been reviewed, assessed and edited by solicitors.

Our documents include: – Client-facing Therapy Agreements and Privacy Notices – Internal documents to organise your practice and comply with Data Privacy legislation – Business paperwork including correspondence and invoice templates – Worksheets to help update your practice and guide you through paperwork
We spent hundreds of hours researching and completing training on ethics, legal requirements, GDPR compliance and regulatory board guidance. We wrote, edited and then rewrote our templates. We used them with therapy clients in our own private practices. We undertook internal and external GDPR audits and studied guidance literature from therapist membership organisations. We consulted with solicitors, who read, researched, gave feedback, reviewed and edited our documents to make sure all privacy, consumer and ethical guidelines were addressed. Finally, we formatted all the documents and highlighted all the parts that need your input to individualise them so they fit the needs of your practice. We wrote guidance notes and produced worksheets to support you in your business goals.
We are pleased to be able to offer you our beautifully presented, professional documents to download and adapt to your own practice. You are welcome to add your logo, change the formatting, add anything specific and delete the parts that do not apply to your practice. Our documents are: – Customisable for your practice in MS Word format – Compliant with General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) (EU) 2016/679, Data Protection Act 2018 and other applicable data privacy legislation – Written in accordance with British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP) Ethical Framework for Counselling Professions and supporting literature – REVIEWED, ASSESSED AND EDITED BY SOLICITORS
