In my Facebook group, people often ask "what's the best way of getting clients" and then lots of lovely counsellors say what has worked for them. The problem is, their answers are all different, which can feel confusing and overwhelming. And herein lies the problem, because all marketing works.
So, how do you decide what's right for you?
In my book, 'Grow Your Private Practice', I de-mystify the marketing process for counsellors.
In this event, we'll be discussing some of the issues I cover in the book and I'll be answering your questions about attracting clients.Find out more »
In this interview, we will talk with popular author and author of the BACP resource on gender, sexual, and relationship diversity, Meg-John Barker, about their work and how to talk about sex and relationships with clients. The interview will cover why understanding gender, sexual, and relationship diversity is so important when working with all clients - not just those from marginalised groups. We will also delve into how to help clients to explore their sexualities and genders, to tune into their desires and fantasies, and to communicate with others about their sexual and relationship styles. We will explore the importance of consent in client-work around sexuality and in general.Find out more »
In this event, I invite you to reflect on the question posed, the diversity of concerns, the opportunity they afford, as well as implications for practice. I shall propose that working with these concerns actively has the potential to reduce dropouts, activate client empowerment, align expectations, identify constraints, correct misinformation, identify process interference, tune in your approach, build the relationship, and of course, grist for the mill! By working proactively with client concerns, we are doing our fair share in right setting the clients' freak-o-meter!Find out more »
