Susan Dunn, The EQ Coach / Emotional Intelligence Coaching
M.A., Clinical Psychology
EQ Alive!  
The training and tools you need to coach emotional intelligence

I MARKET COACHES.  Please go here if you're ready to take your practice to the next level.

I got into coaching, because I was marketing a therapist.  He was billing 55 hours a week, couldn't accommodate any more clients in his office, and was interested in going online.  He had never touched a computer; in fact he has not touched a computer to this day.

While doing the marketing research on legalities, etc. of doing therapy online, I discovered the field of coaching.  I told him about it.  We did websites and marketing.  The rest is history.

Let me combine these two skills to help you start your coaching practice or take it to the next level. 

Approximately 1/3 my practice is marketing other coaches.  Some are trying to start a practice.  Some are trying to go international.  Others are struggling to get clients.  Others have no idea how to manage their websites which sit there attracting no one and costing them money.

 

  LOOKING FOR COACHING SCHOOL?
     
For EQ Alive! please go here.
This coaching program is designed rapidly add emotional intelligence to your coaching mix.  It's assumed the student already has basic coaching skills.

  THERAPISTS, PSYCHOLOGISTS, PSYCHIATRISTS & MSW 
Coaching is a natural field for mental health professionals, and emotional intelligence probably familiar to you, at least in concept. While you may not wish to spend more time and money getting certified in coaching, training in emotional intelligence is something you might consider.  I've designed a program that's intensive, assuming that the learner already has counseling and coaching skills, affordable, quick and user-friendly.

  MARKETING YOUR PRACTICE
"Is anyone actually making any money at this?" -- A Coach

Many coaches fail, and the reason why they fail is they don't know how to market.  I offer Web Strategies, and 20+ years experience marketing professional services and non-profits.  Internet marketing, web strategies, web design, traditional marketing.  Full-service consultation.  For marketing coaching, please go to WebStrategies.

  MENTOR COACHING
"You have a gift for explaining complex concepts from the perspective of the person listening.  Why don't you teach this stuff full time?"  -- A Therapist Client

All coaches have coaches.  Modeling, building upon your previous experience, education and credentials, speeds up the learning curve.  Mentor coaching available and can be combined with marketing coaching.  Please EMAIL ME for fees and further information.

  THE SWITCH

"Around the country," says an article in the Family Therapy Networker, "clinicians are experiencing similar jolts of renewed energy and zest for their work as they immerse themselves in the evolving field of personal coaching.  Enthusiasm for this new arena of service is at a high pitch." 

  ADVANTAGES OF COACHING
It's being reported that as many as 1/4 of practicing therapists today are segueing into coaching.  There are many advantages to coaching, and there are growing disadvantages to therapy:

  • Potential clients all over the world, not just in your home town, IF you know how to market on the Internet

  • High-functioning, appreciative clients

  • Speedy progress - you'll be amazed

  • Potential to earn $0-$1000 an hour

  • FREEDOM - I'm a speaker for cruise lines, and went on 10 cruises last year alone.  Anywhere there's a phone and Internet, I can coach.  However, coaching clients are not dependent, needy or in crisis, and while I make arrangements, they all say, "Go have a vacation."

  • Your skills can be easily retrofitted

  • Extremely low overhead

  • It is serious work, but not as serious

  • No emergency phone calls; no hospitalizations

  • No licensing

  • Chances for passive revenue

  CONTRACT DIFFERENCE/SAMPLE RESOURCE
It's important if you're a licensed therapist that you have a special contract for coaching clients.  If you would like to receive a draft of one prepared by Eric A. Harris, Ed.D., J.D., please EMAIL ME and put "contract" for the subject line.  Included are phone numbers where you can reach Dr. Harris, who has been consultant to the Legal and regulatory Affairs Division of the APA Practice Directorate, for consultation (free if you're insured by APAIT).  

  WEB STRATEGY & DESIGN
This essential feature of a cyber-practice will probably be new to you if you're a therapist.  Let me guide you through the process.  I coach Web Strategies.  Both I and my marketing associate have been awarded the Golden Web Award for web design.

 
WEB DESIGN
Web Designer, Nancy Fenn, has designed websites for numerous coaches and will save you time and money.  She's especially gifted at intelligent, sensitive renderings of YOU onto the Internet.  Professional, fast, and affordable.  EMAIL ME to see her portfolio.  She designed my other sites, www.webstrategies.cc, and www.eqcoach.net.     

  SEARCH ENGINE OPTIMIZATION
Our SEO Expert will keep you out of the jungle out there.  I am currently holding 6 of the top 10 places on both google and yahoo.  We can do this for you.  It's either this, or pay-per-click.

  WEB TECHNICIAN
Web Technician, Erol Karazincir, handles the technical side of it.  15 years experience.  Can't beat him.  He works long distance and can explain anything you need to know.

  VIRTUAL ASSISTANT
We can provide you with exceptional virtual assistants.  What's that?  Your secretary you never see.  A Virtual Assistant handles my Distance Learning School, registering students, subscribing them to the ezine, and sending out courses to hundreds of students starting 5-10 different courses every week.  

  CO-AUTHORING ARTICLES
Paid advertising on the Internet for coaching doesn't work.  It's a relationship field.  One of the few avenues open to you is article-writing, and I'll show you the ropes.  Go here for my article-writing service.

  EZINE
We offer full-service ezine design and production.
