I’ve known many counsellors that have expressed an interest in seeing clients online, but the tech side of things put them off so it stayed on their to-do list.
Well, guess what? Due to the coronavirus, many counsellors have had their hand forced and are now seeing clients online - not necessarily a bad thing as it’s made people take action.
Some are using it as a temporary measure and can’t wait to get back to face to face, but others have discovered that they really like it and can see the many benefits for both them and the clients and want to keep offering online counselling.
So if you want to offer online counselling, how do you attract online clients?
If you’re looking to attract new counselling clients, you know that you need to regularly spend time on your marketing.

But here's something that's both simple and fun that will help crush Imposter Syndrome. Enjoy!
