When You Are The Product - Marketing For Counsellors 11th May 2021 9am - 1pm

Since I qualified a decade ago, I have always had a passion for helping other counsellors to reach their potential and grow their practice. This is why I have always offered student counsellors reduced fee's for both personal therapy and supervision. I have a true interest in being with other counsellors on their road to finding what works best for them and their clients, I love watching them grow both professionally and personally.

But, (there is always a but somewhere isn't there!) I often see counsellors complete their training and qualify but have no idea where to go from there. It is a hugely proud moment for them and then what? Suddenly they are needing to find clients and they need to tell clients what they can offer. All of a sudden the counsellor becomes the product and this can be quite a scary and overwhelming realisation that sadly stops some people in their tracks.

If sounds like it resonates with you, this is where we would love to help......

The first step is about identifying some key information about you and the way that you work, this is not a one size fits all, you are individual, you are unique and you really are the product.

During this first fully interactive online module via Zoom, Simon Heath of Roaming Therapies and I (Becky Whittaker) aim to guide you in:-

  • Identifying what you would like clients to know about you and your services.

  • Looking at being clear about what you offer.

  • Thinking about who is your "ideal client" and how you can identify them.

  • Overcoming barriers to putting yourself out there online.

  • Discovering how colours and images can impact your advertising.

  • Writing your "About Me" or profile page (we will aim to make a good start on this during the workshop)

The workshop is perfect for those currently enrolled on a Diploma in Counselling or above, those that have recently qualified and those that have been qualified and practicing for a while but wanting to really start promoting their services at this point.

We would love for you to join us and help you on your way to promoting you and your practice in a way that feels genuine, warm and authentic. We aim for this to be a very experiential morning, with lots for you to think about and play around with, there will be plenty of opportunity for discussion and space to ask questions.

Interested? Our next one is running 11th May 2021 from 9am - 1pm via Zoom, you can book via Devon Counselling College or please drop me an email if you need to ask anything.
