How to Write Your Psychology Today Profile

Stand out to the clients you work best with

Like many therapists, my clients come to me from two main sources: colleagues (doctors, therapists, treatment centres) and Psychology Today.

People who come to me without a referral usually stay with me long term and I believe this is because by the time they find me, they already know we are well matched through my directory listings and website.

Our writing style and key words can demonstrate our approach and personalities and we can make the process easier for potential clients by being clear about our procedures and availability.

Signing up to this FREE course takes you through the whole Psychology Today profile step by step with examples from my own and other profiles to give you tips on what to include and what to avoid. We start with a brainstorming exercise, write the personal statement using my formula and finish with all the check boxes and supporting sections.

Now with added section on updating PT profiles due to Covid-19.

Our Facebook subgroup Psychology Today: How to Write Your Profile continues to provide a space for you to share your wordings with colleagues for feedback.

Tamara Howell

I am an integrative psychotherapist based at 127 Harley St, London with regular visits to Paris where I work from a lovely courtyard office in the 15th arrondissement. I have also been working online via secure video conferencing for the last 10 years and love having this variety and flexibility in my work.

I am passionate about Professional Self Care in private practice and support other therapists through courses, online communities and providing customisable paperwork templates.

I began the Private Practice Paperwork project in 2018 with the help of several researchers, assistants and colleagues in the therapy field after completely rewriting all of my own policies and documents. My previous career as a Lloyd’s insurance broker taught me the importance of preparation, legal compliance and adhering to regulatory guidelines and I spent over a year compiling the first customisable package available for purchase, working directly with solicitors to ensure legal compliance. My courses are clear, concise, consider ethical and legal guidelines and include my own experience. I provide examples wherever appropriate and invite participants to join online communities for feedback and collaboration.

Thank you for participating!
