Become a registered Therapist on Devon therapy hub
Hi I'm Katherine, one of the therapists represented here on the website. I am the founder and editor of the site, and would like to share my vision with you...
Creating community support and resilience has been my work for over 20 years, and I saw a need for more of this in the therapeutic profession. Being fairly new to private practice as a Psychotherapist when I started in 2018, I was keen to create more opportunities to be part of a supportive community with my peers. I've found that being a full time therapist can be quite lonely work - which has ignited a passion to create more opportunities for connection and support amongst my fellow therapists in the area.
Therefore I set out to create Devon Therapy Hub to serve a number of functions:
To serve as a shared marketing space for therapist in private practice within Devon, at a much more affordable rate than going it alone
To create opportunities for peer-to-peer support through quarterly meetings
To share inspiration that comes from our work, through creating a shared blog space
To create a members only forum, so we can communicate with each other, and support each other with challenges
To produce a quarterly newsletter with information and inspiration from our members
To give each member their own @devontherapyhub.com email account, so they can keep their personal email secure
To have their information shared through our social media platforms
To enable easy contact for clients
And to have access to offer all this for a very minimal cost
Initially Devon Therapy Hub was started with some colleagues who I have shared training with, to start slow and have time to build up it's professional presentation. It's now been 3 years since the hub was established, we have gained a positive reputation in the local community, gained a good amount of followers on social media, and we're now ready to invite you in :)
To be part of the hub...
We are currently looking to expand the hub to included any therapists who are based in Devon, have completed a high level of professional training as a counsellor or therapist, are registered with a UK based governing body, working under professional supervision and are offering private practice either face-to-face or online. If you meet this criteria then we'd love to have you on board.
How will clients find me?
Various ways: through google search, through the website directly - where they can search for you by location or type of therapy. We will also add your information as a 'service' on our Facebook page, and advertise your details on Instagram and Twitter. Your @devontherapyhub.com email will be advertised on your profile, and whatever number you choose to give us for clients to contact you.
What are the costs and what do I get for this?
For the first year I am offering this service at an introductory price of £20. If you would like to continue to be part of the hub, the on-going cost with be £35 per year to be a member. If you recommend a friend who signs up with us, your membership fee for the next year will be reduced to £30.
For this you will have a profile page on the website, be advertised through our social media, have your own @devontherapyhub.com email address (needs to be linked to a gmail account), receive our quarterly newsletters - which you are invited to contribute to, be invited to attend quarterly peer-to-peer support meetings where we have chance for peer supervision and sharing struggles and joys, and be invited to a private Facebook group with the other members, to connect with each other, any time you like.
