Hairy Help for Charity

Staff at King Edward VII Academy in King’s Lynn have raised £500 for One to One.

A group of 18 teachers took part in Movember, growing facial hair throughout November to support the One to One Project, based on the North Lynn Industrial Estate.

The men of King Edward VII Academy raised awareness about men’s mental health. Together they raised more than £500 that they then donated to the One to One Project to help support adults in West and North Norfolk.

“At our school, mental health for both our students and staff is a high priority, being able to give back to our local community to help support such a worthy cause is what our school is all about.” said Principal Sarah Hartshorn.

Setting Up and Running a Therapy
Business (2nd Edition)
provides a
succinct, practical, and accessible
guide for counsellors starting out in
private practice as well as for more
experienced practitioners who would
like advice on how to continue to
attract a larger clientele.
This second edition has been
restructured to bring all the
marketing chapters together to help
counsellors understand a variety of
ways of helping their business grow,
and includes new material on using
social media. Through the inclusion
of topics such as setting up a
website, choosing an ideal
workplace, marketing, meeting data
storage standards (including new
material on GDPR, and methods of
accepting payments, the author
offers his expertise and guidance to
help practitioners make wise,
workable decisions based on a
thorough understanding of the
stakes as well as the viable options.

What counsellors have said about the second edition

“From big picture thinking, to small
practical details, this book gave me
the right skills mind-set to
successfully launch my own private
practice. James’s extensive
knowledge and real life experience
are invaluable and make this an
essential read for any counsellor
ready to go it alone.”

Lori White is a solution-focused,
integrative counsellor in private
practice in Wimbledon.

“This book is full of down-to-earth,
practical advice for counsellors who
are also trying to run a business. I
have recommended it to my
supervisees and other counsellors,
especially those starting out in
private practice. The whole section
on business growth has made me
reflect on my own practice, and the
chapter on GDPR succeeds in
explaining the topic so clearly.”

Rabina Akhtar is an integrative
counsellor, supervisor, and trainer in
private practice in Peterborough.

“I first read the first edition of this
book when I was a counselling
student and thinking about starting
in private practice. I read the whole
book in less than a week and told
my peers to get a copy. It helped me
from a business perspective (profit
and loss, the real cost of starting
up), website advice (wording,
phrases to use and avoid, how to
sell yourself), and how to work
safely. The new chapters on social
media and GDPR are really helpful.
The latter is scary and unclear for
many people but this edition
clarifies what you need to do.”

Daniel does a Triathlon for One to One

Daniel started running about 3 years ago with a local running group (RunDMC) to loose weight and improve his lifestyle. He enjoyed this immensely so decided to enter local running events. Through the running events group he was fortunate enough to meet like-minded enthusiasts who also enjoyed cycling. It was not long before Daniel was cycling every Week.

Daniel prepares to ride in a Triathlon…sponsor him here

As a natural progression he started to enter local cycling events. Through the running group he was introduced to the King’s Lynn Tri Club and started to take part in open water swims, duathlons and aquathons. Daniel took part in his first tri-event last year in Hunstanton and has been taking part in various events ever since, however due to CV-19 the events that he was wanting to participate in have been cancelled.

Daniel decided that due to the cancellation of these events, possessing a strong desire to maintain his current level of fitness, work towards a goal and challenge himself, he has decided to partake in a sponsored Triathlon on behalf of the One to One Project.

Daniel chose the One to One Project as he believes that mental health is a worthy cause, especially with the changes caused by CV-19 and would like to support a local mental health charity.

Daniel’s Triathlon features a 1.2-mile swim, a 56-mile bike and a 13.1-mile run. 
He expects this to take around 6-7 hours to complete.

Daniel will be taking part in this Triathlon on 12th September.

To sponsor Daniel with his Triathlon, please go to Daniels GoFundMe page ( and donate whatever you can. You can also see a map of the route Daniel will be taking and get updates on his training progress:

Good luck Daniel!
