This podcast aims to dispel some of the mystery about what goes on behind the scenes of running a group counselling practice. Since we launched our group practice, Shoreline Counselling in 2019, we’ve learned alot about leadership, office build-ins, renting vs. owning, working with independent contractors, supervising students, business expansion, marketing, financial literacy and SEO, amongst many other things.  With two locations and 25 clinicians and counting, we don’t pretend to have all the answers, but in this podcast we aim to do our best at honestly sharing our experiences - good and bad - in the hopes of offering nuggets of useful information to support others walking this path of group practice ownership.
