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 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.
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 (gf.me/u/yphgm5) 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:
