As a Coach and Counsellor myself I set up the Grow My Practice programme to help people like you assist more future clients using low cost, tried and tested ways.

At first ‘Grow My Practice’ was only really open to Counsellors and Therapists at the website ‘Marketing For Counsellors’ . We found out that several clever Coaches and Hypnotherapists sneaked in and used the content to develop their private practices too.

I spoke about Therapist Marketing at the 2009 British Association For Counselling and Psychotherapy Conference. The 2010 Irish Association For Counselling and Psychotherapy Annual Conference. Since 2008. I have run over 60 live events all across the UK and Ireland, helping several hundred therapists with their set up and practice marketing

We offer simple, highly usable, practical and regularly updated content to help you develop your practice.

You can choose from our live courses and workshops, online ‘Grow My Practice’ Programme or a home study course.

Here is a sample of one of our videos

Branding

Is it time to throw out those embarrassing business cards? We’ll help you develop your personal or business branding, artwork, logos and even copy. We’ll help you design leaflets, business cards, flyers and even banners for a professional image that will give you and your clients the confidence in doing business together.

Business Supervision and Coaching
Whether you want to take fast action or receive patient, understanding one-to-one support, our individual or small group business supervision is a regular, normally monthly, focused session not concentrating on your therapy work but on your business. It’s all too easy to get caught up working “in” your practice and not devoting enough time to working “on” your practice. Regular focused time developing practical actions will give you the confidence and results you need to set up and grow a successful private practice.

Business supervision can be in person at our Counselling centre in Birmingham or you can join our live online Business Supervision groups – all you need to get involved is a telephone, computer or tablet.

Websites, Video, Social Media and Google Ads for Counsellors and Therapists

Developing a Search Engine Optimised Website and Web Presence, if done correctly, can get you high rankings in Google and the other search engines that when people come looking for a therapist, they find you, bringing prospective clients right to your front door.

We’ll work with you to develop an attractive, search optimised website that fits your budget and style. You will even be able to upload blog posts, post updates, add videos and pictures at the click of a button and with minimum fuss, leaving you to concentrate on your work as a therapist, not a trainee web designer.

Feedback…

We are delighted with the website that Nate (creative designer at Citizen Click – part of the same social enterprise that delivers Grow My Practice) designed and built for Dynamic Marketing. He took the pain and hassle out of the process, applied our branding guidance to great effect, and within a matter of weeks it was live! Nate is very easy to work with, customer focused and keeps you informed every step of the way. Ranjit Bansal Co-founder Dynamic Marketing

Very professional in all our interactions and contacts. Provided excellent training, follow-ups and are very reliable. Always happy to advise and support on any problems. Can recommend without any reservations. It was a really great experience working with this company. Ministries

Dear Martin,
Thank you so much. The balance you held between downloading information and engaging us in dialogue was helpful. The course content was fantastic and I appreciated the care and generosity you put into the course
I came home and immediately re-wrote my welcome page. Admittedly I feel overwhelmed by all the possible tasks and actions I could take to market myself better but I also came away with a sense of doing a bite-sized chunk at a time. Wanjiku Nyachae – Cascade Therapy
