How to have an internet presence (and still stay true to your ethics!)
If you’re a counsellor, Art Psychotherapist or psychotherapist in private practice, you have probably wondered (maybe it feels like ‘agonised’ would be a better word!) about what kind of internet presence you should have.
Advice that works for other types of small business or self-employed professional doesn’t necessarily apply in our specialised field. So where should you start?
This short, discussion-based workshop aims to help you develop your thinking and practical knowledge about therapists’ websites, blogging and social media.
We will look at:
- The options for setting up a website (and which ones are most recommended)
- Resources that can help you
- How to choose a social media platform that will work for you
- Ways to use social media without compromising your professional ethics, boundaries and values
- Why, how and whether to blog (and what mistakes you should avoid)
- How to get your website seen by the clients you want to attract
This will be a small-group workshop with plenty of attention given to individuals’ specific questions and whole-group discussions.
When: Saturday 20th May 2017, 2-5pm
Where: Wivenhoe, Essex
Coming by road: Wivenhoe is accessible by car from London and other places in South-East England and East Anglia. There is plenty of on-street parking available.
Coming by rail: There are also very good rail links from London (London Liverpool Street and Stratford) – the journey to Wivenhoe station takes just over an hour. The venue is around 8 minutes’ walk from the station.
Cost: £60 (£47 Early Bird) plus booking fee.
I regret that there is no disabled access at this venue.
