The Connected Therapist

Working for yourself as a therapist gives you a wonderful amount of freedom to do things your way, to do things when you like. You help people, you feel good about what you do, life is good. But, marketing yourself and your business can be harder than you think. If you are struggling with your marketing, I have created The Connected Therapist for you.

The package covers 5 key areas:-

Support Email me at any time with your questions . It is always good to get a second opinion.

Motivation Fast Forward events really help you to get done what you need to do. We have one event each month.

Practical Help Modules show you how to do things. So for example, do you know how to set up a Business Facebook Page? Do you know how to set up a Business Linkedin Page? Would a video showing step by step instructions on this be useful? What about gift vouchers, posters, leaflets. Would MS Word templates help? What about an Excel spreadsheet to keep track of your expenses? You can literally waste hours doing things which should really be quick and easy.

Business Knowledge Do you know which social media are right for you? Do you know what a "call to action" is and why you should always include one on all of your marketing? Do you know how to get your business showing up on Google Maps? Modules also help you define your "brand" and identify your "Unique Selling Points"

Planning and Prioritizing With everything you need to do, it can be hard to plan and prioritize. Use these modules you stop being a rabbit caught in the headlights!

The Connected Therapist starts with a review of where your business is now. Then you will be able to choose the modules most applicable to you. Following that you will have access to a weekly online module which will give you a number of very specific tasks to do. And, because you have chosen your own modules, it will be in one of the areas you need to do some work. So feel:-


Confident - using The Connected Therapist you will know what you need to do, when you need to do it and how it needs to be done


Motivated - The Connected Therapist will help motivate you - and join our monthly Fast Forward Events and get loads done!


Supported - by the other therapists using the Connected Therapist and by the experienced therapists running The Connected Therapist


In control - each module will give you specific tasks to complete that week


Skilled - use our templates to give you a head start getting your material right - use our step by step videos and get things done quickly, effectively and right first time


A sense of belonging, as The Connected Therapists work together.
