Grab a Pen and a Big Sheet of Paper and Do This To Professionally Build an Online Therapy Course
Who Are Your Ideal Clients for Your Online Course?
First of all, you need to figure out who your ‘ideal clients are. These are the clients that will energise you and you to do your best work. Once you have that figured out – that is half the battle won.
Understand Their Pain and Pleasure Points
The next thing you need to do is to develop psychological insights – you need to think and feel like they do. I’m guessing one of the reasons why you want to help your ideal clients is because you’ve been on a similar journey and you want to share your experience with others.
Plan The Journey and Steer Clear of Self Sabotage
To guide your clients to Pleasure Island and to help them get the results they crave – you’ll have to design a series of coaching and therapy sessions / workshops or online modules that help them to make consistent progress towards their goals.

You’ll be given access to our online hub and the 10 Tools Used By Talented Therapists plus an app you can put on your phone called 101 Therapy Interventions for Busy Coaches, Therapists and Healers.
You just need a few web pages. The hard part is coming up with the course that will sell. In this short article I’ll explain what you really need to do and nope! it’s not technical stuff – it’s all about cultivating the right mindset first and then having access to great therapy interventions.
If you’ve done your research you’ll know that you only need a few web pages to create a great online course. All the steps are explained in detail in my book The Millionaire Therapist. You’ll get a free digital copy when you sign up for my Triple Diploma in Strategic Hypnotherapy, Mind Coaching and Online Therapy course.
But before you start building web pages or hiring a web designer you’ve got to step back and look at what kind of coaching or therapy course you’re going to build for your audience.
Most therapists believe that they have to be deeply experienced, highly qualified and oozing with confidence to successfully create an online therapy course. But the truth is you don’t.
You Only Need To Be One Step Ahead Of Your Clients
When I first started creating online coaching and therapy courses, I really struggled with this empowering belief. But it’s true and it’s so true that it is worth repeating. So take a deep breath and repeat after me – “I only need to be one step ahead of my clients”. There is a mindset shift you need to make and it’s an important one.
You see, your clients don’t want help from someone with a PhD, they want help from someone like them. Someone who is local, who understands their situation. Someone they can believe in and who they can get in touch with easily. Someone they can go and see for face-to-face sessions. Someone who is accessible.
Someone like you. You’re online course will take your clients on a journey and you only need to be one step ahead of where your clients are right now – and if you can stay one step ahead of them – then you will always be there ready to provide them with the resources, help and support they need to take their next step and the step after that and the one after that. In NLP we call this chunking down – helping our clients to break their problems down into smaller, manageable steps that inspire confidence and increase motivation.
Your Weakness Could Be Your Strength!
It’s very possible that you might view those challenges you’ve faced in life, especially the ones that proved really difficult to shake off – well you might view them as part of your weakness but think again.
I’m here today to tell you that what you think are your weaknesses could in fact be your strength as a therapist and that they could become your therapy superpower.
Maybe you’ve battled to lose weight or to permanently quit smoking. Maybe you were terrified to speak in public or had a phobia. Perhaps you know what it’s like to suffer from anxiety, depression, self-doubt or a destructive habit. Maybe you’ve had challenges with your health and found that conventional medicine just didn’t provide the support you needed.
Your Story Could Inspire Others
But if you’ve found a solution to that problem, then you have a story to tell. A story that will inspire your clients to book therapy with someone who truly understands what they are going through. Take a close look at the journey you have taken – map it out and break it down into bite-size chunks.
Find the system or the process that is hidden in your journey and turn that process into an online course.
