My Time planning to advise nationwide

Birmingham counselling practice My Time has decided to launch as a national franchise, as a result of growing demand due to government legislation. The counselling franchise is thought to be the first of its kind and will be trying to make the small practice become a national name.

The idea has proved to be so popular that applications have been flooding in from across the country. My Time was founded by director Michael Lilley eight years ago and currently employs eight full time people and is supplemented by volunteer work.

The firm is searching for entrepreneurial counsellors across the country who would like to start their own My Time Branch. Mr Lilley said that they believe there are some life-coaching franchises in the market but for actual medical counselling, this one will be the first of its kind.

They were excited to offer their unique business as a franchise package. With this, the franchisees will not only benefit from their established systems and experience but also will also be able to tap into their contacts, which have taken years to build. My Time franchisees, even if new to the industry, should have a distinct lead over established independent counsellors.

Lilley’s son and company’s business development manager, William Lilley said that at the moment they were looking for suitable people those who are keen on starting a pilot in Worcestershire.
