There are a number of pros and cons that arise when considering various counselling office spaces for rent.

The one place where the pros far outweigh the cons, though, is renting in a business centre instead of a private office.

How are we so sure? Here is a list of reasons for renting a counselling office space in a business centre instead of a private office.  

The advantages of a counselling office space for rent in a business centre

1. The offices come furnished

When you rent a private office, you are responsible for furnishing the space. This is not just expensive, but time and labour intensive. By finding a counselling office space for rent in a business centre, you have an office that comes ready for you to step into. No muss, no fuss.  

2. You only pay for what you need

Unlike private offices, where you have to purchase all your own supplies, at a business centre, everything you could need is available to you, but you only pay for what you use. That means that, if you do not normally need, for example, a scanner, you do not have to tie up money in one. At the same time, if you realize you need a scanner for any reason, there is one available just steps away.   

3. You always have professional administrative support

It can be hard to find professional, reliable staff. It is even harder to get professional, reliable staff for no extra cost. Our business centre, however, takes the cost – and complications – out of getting an administrative team. When you rent a counselling office space with us, our reception space and professional staff come free of charge to assist you and your clients.

4. You can get extra amenities

Many business centres offer extra amenities. Ours include kitchen facilities and free tea and coffee for you and your clients. While these may sound like conveniences, they can help you feel great even during the toughest work day. We also offer networking opportunities to assist you in growing your business and connecting with other professionals. Unlike in a private office, at our business centre, you will find yourself part of a warm, welcoming community of like-minded professionals.     

5. Your office will be in a convenient location

The last thing you want is for clients to get lost on their way to a session. Private offices can have this issue as they are often in lower traffic, at times even residential, areas. This also means there can be related issues like limited parking, a less professional atmosphere, and little public transit.  When you choose a counselling office space for rent in our business centre though, you are in a convenient area that is easy to find, has close-by parking, and is accessible by public transit.

The biggest advantage to finding a counselling office space for rent in a business centre, however, is the care you are able to give your clients.

Coming to counselling can be intimidating or stressful. Therefore, you want to do everything you can to ensure your clients feel welcomed and supported – from the minute they step into your space until the moment they leave. A counselling office space for rent in a business centre allows you to ensure your clients are cared for – even when you are tied up with other work. Our professional administrative staff will greet and attend to your clients, making their visit as enjoyable as possible.
