Areas of Special Interest
Relationships, grief, anxiety, depression, trauma, sexual abuse, self-esteem, confidence, behaviour problems, parenting, communication, life changes, anger, chronic illness, bullying, … now I am just filling the space to show you what the maximum is.
You can use this space to describe the services you are offering. Unless your target clients are other therapists and supervisees it is best to use plain language to describe what you are offering. It is also important to focus on the benefits clients will get from seeing you, they are interested to know what will change for them: how will their emotions, relationships, work life be improved.
Counselling can help you to: explore your emotions, thoughts and behavior;
become more aware of yourself, your values and what motivates you; to find purpose and meaning in your life; improve your relationships; be more relaxed and manage stress; develop your sense of well-being; plan and set goals; self care.
I can help you develop the insight and skills to manage and work through the problems you are experiencing. You will be listened to empathically and supported in developing an understanding as to what is happening for you.
I can also help you discover how the past patterns influence the present. These new insights create freedom to explore choices around change. I will support you to develop new skills to manage these changes. Self esteem and self confidence increase. Relationships with yourself and others become healthier.
In this section you can simply list your modalities which is good for the clients who know what they are, and are looking for something specific. However, it is also a good idea to describe in plain language what is special or useful about the main approach you are offering.
For example you might say: I work from a psychosynthesis perspective. This is a psycho-spiritual framework which is a gentle yet powerful approach, that combines the best of Western depth psychology and Eastern psychology.
Now I’m just repeating myself so you can see how big this section can be.

Background and Experience
Giving potential clients information about your professional work experience assures them you are skilled and experienced. Describe both your position, clients and work involved. Depending on your preference you may want to include information about your non-therapy work experience or interests, which will “humanise” for wary potential clients.
For example: I have extensive experience (over 18 years) working with clients in both public and private settings. I have worked as a counsellor at the Family Therapy Centre, Lifeline, and Bay High School.
Or you could say: I was also a counsellor at Youthline for the 20+ age group, working with people from a variety of backgrounds, cultures and sexual orientations, including professionals and students.
If you provide supervision to counsellors, therapists or other professional tell them about it here. While other sections of your Profile should generally be written in plain language, here you can include as much jargon as you like as your target audience will understand it.
Tell potential supervisees about what range of professionals you provide supervision to, do you see individual and/or groups, your modalities, supervision methods, supervisory experience. Rather than just giving the standard generally understood description of supervision try to talk about your specific style/approach/emphasis. Potential superivsees want to answer the question “Why choose you?”
