Are you a mental health professional with a feeling in the pit of your stomach that the system is BROKEN?

Did you start your training full of ideas about changing the landscape of mental health for the better but now you find you are so busy seeing people in crisis that you don't have time to do any of it?

Do you KNOW that we need to get out of our therapy rooms and start reaching people in other ways? Do you KNOW that the key to better mental health is prevention not crisis management?

If you do then join me for a mix practical skills, strategies and inspirational interviews with psychologists and therapists just like you who are using their skills to do BIG things way beyond the therapy room.

Prepare to get your "trainee spirit" back.

    Emotion Focused Therapy with Dr Anna Oldershaw

    Emotion Focused Therapy with Dr Anna Oldershaw

    Emotion Focused Therapy with Dr Anna OldershawWelcome to the Business of Psychology podcast. In this series, we're exploring the different ways that psychologists and therapists can work in independent practice. 
    One thing I've come to appreciate over the past few years is how beneficial it can be for professional fulfilment and building your personal authority to maintain connections to a university. Dr. Anna Oldershaw is a clinical psychologist working independently and as a reader in clinical psychology at the Salomons Institute for Applied Psychology, which is part of Canterbury Christchurch University, and it's where I trained as a clinical psychologist. I've known Anna for a little while, as we've been working together on the marketing strategy for the emotion focused therapy courses that Anna convenes and teaches on at Salomons. Before I met Anna, I really didn't know very much about EFT, but when I started reading up on emotion focused therapy and I heard Anna describe the difference that it's made to clients, I got really excited about the possibility that it holds, especially for clients that might not get the most benefit from some of the talking therapies. So I'm really pleased to have Anna here today to talk to us about emotion focused therapy, EFT.

    I'm running the workshop on how to bring passive income into your practice, so you can create more space.

Crucially, I'll also...

    What Mental Health Professionals Should Know About Passive Income

    What Mental Health Professionals Should Know About Passive IncomeHello and welcome to the Business of Psychology podcast.

    What Mental Health Professionals Should Know About Passive IncomeI get a lot of rubbish in my inbox about online courses and how creating one is going to allow me to live a “laptop lifestyle” working from anywhere and having oodles of money and free time. It’s annoying because I think I've made a really successful job of passive and semi passive income over the last few years, but that still isn't anywhere near the lifestyle that I lead. Partly that is because I'm a mental health professional, so the passive and semi passive income that I've created reflects that. I haven't just decided to move into an industry which is particularly lucrative for this stuff, although my things have done well, I have made money from them, and I continue to do so. But I think maybe some of the gurus that are in our inboxes are selling a story which may have felt true to them, but perhaps it isn't the most self reflective story and perhaps doesn't reflect the circumstances in which they started their business, and certainly doesn't reflect the values and ethical considerations that I know everybody listening to this shares. So in this episode, I'm going to talk about the realities of passive and semi passive income for mental health professionals by dispelling some of the myths that you've probably heard. 
    Myth 1: You can make a lot of money with little or no investment.For example, many of the people that land in my inbox talking about passive income had a lot of money to invest in their business at the beginning, or maybe they were in a position where they didn't need to take a salary from it for a long time because perhaps they'd left a very highly paid corporate job in order to pursue their dream, or maybe they had a very wealthy partner so they didn't have that pressure to bring an income in early.
    This is really important because reaching profitability from an information product like an online course or a digital download, largely depends on scale. If you're selling a £47 course, and you...

    Data Protection for Psychologists in 2024 with Clare Veal

    Data Protection for Psychologists in 2024 with Clare Veal

    Data Protection for Psychologists in 2024 with Clare VealWelcome to the Business of Psychology podcast. Today we're joined by Clare Veal, a commercial lawyer from Aubergine Legal. Lots of you listening will already be familiar with Clare, as she is the legal eagle behind our legal templates, which are bringing peace of mind to hundreds of mental health professionals right this second. She also teaches in my Start and Grow course, giving our students a really solid understanding of what we need to do and why we need to do it, to protect ourselves and our clients in our independent work. But today we have Clare on this podcast because I think it's really important that everyone that's seeing clients independently has a good grasp of data protection and specifically how it applies to us. I find that once you understand that, then things like contracts and policies that we need to create, or that we've created for you in the legal pack if you have that, they just don't seem so scary anymore.
