Making Videos for Social Media: A Therapist’s Guide

Do you use video in your marketing, whether that’s on your website, social media, YouTube or somewhere else?

There’s no denying it, video has become increasingly important in marketing. So if you’re thinking of utilising the power for your own practice but don’t know where to start, making videos for social media, a therapist’s guide, with guest expert Sarah Dosanjh is for you. 


There's no getting away from it, video is everywhere. 

According to Sprout Social in their blog 'Social Media Video Statistics Marketers Need to Know for 2023’, users will retain 95% of a message watched on video as opposed to only 10% read in text. Interesting, right?

And more than 54% of marketers say that video is the most valuable content type for achieving social media marketing goals.

Yet video is also the most underutilised format across Facebook, Instagram and Twitter, comprising 14%, 11% and 5% of each network’s content respectively.

Maybe it’s time to take advantage of this. 

Do you use video in your marketing? And if not, why not?

Could it be that…

  • Maybe you have a fear of visibility?
  • Perhaps a fear of being trolled?
  • Maybe you’re not sure what to say?
  • Or maybe the tech scares you?

Well if you answered yes to any - or all of those, this is the episode for you, because we are exploring making videos for social media.

And I’m delighted to have therapist and YouTuber Sarah Dosanjh here as my guest.

She has produced her own successful YouTube channel ‘The Binge Eating Therapist’ since 2019, and as such knows a thing or two about using video.

And today, Sarah shares some advice about

  • How to get started
  • Managing fears around visibility
  • What tech you will need
  • Some practical tips about editing

Which can really trip us up.

So click play on the podcast above - I think you’re going to like this one!

Now I’m feeling so motivated, I've decided that in Q2 (April - June) I am going to focus on starting to produce video and get more comfortable with it. 

There, I said it out loud. So are you going to join me? Hop on over to my socials and let me know.
