The most common question i have been asked since becoming a private OT is weather i regret making the break into private practice.
No, absolutely i do not! Its a rollercoster of emotions but being in control of your own career and having such a huge spectrum of opportunities open to you is not one to be missed!
But making that break is a daunting one. the decision to become a private OT needs careful consideration and needs to take account of a wide range of factors.
The COTSSIP ‘look before you leap’ study day really helped me to clarify what i wanted to acheieve and if it was realisitic! The sessions look at all those questions everyone immediatley thinks of when considering independent practice and is run by OT’s who have suceeded in the sector and can give great advice.
The next course is soon so if your considering private peactice i would look before you leap!!! check out more details at http://www.cotss-ip.org.uk/
