What others say
When I knew I had to set up a new website for myself I hadn't a clue where to start. The whole technology side was a complete mystery to me. Fortunately I knew Mieke. She dealt with absolutely everything for me with patience and humour, answered all my daft questions, found ideas and made suggestions, and metaphorically held my hand until I was willing to try to fly for myself. Her advice and suggestions have been invaluable throughout and I always know she is there with website, video tips and guidance, and marketing suggestions anytime I need them. She is always up to date with her vast knowledge and is very willing to share. I'm so pleased I asked her to help me and have a website that I am proud of as a result and was getting notice on online searches from day 1.
Thank you Mieke
I was very resistant to prioritising my time to do whatever I needed in order to get a website. Why should someone who has been practising so long, have to engage with such things? That was my attitude. Mieke reassured me I did not need to become a technical expert at all. During the time she coached me, I created the space necessary to think about my practice and where I wanted it to go. I recommend Mieke to anyone who has any similar resistance. You will find she is very patient and knowledgeable; she won't give up on you and you will discover it really is fun when it all starts to happen!
Very many thanks Mieke.
"Mieke's Facebook workshop course was both informative and easy to follow. Although I haven't started a Private Practice yet and enrolled on the course for interest rather than needs, it is assuring to know that I could re-approach Mieke for advice in the future and receive up-to-date information on any changes. Also, the Facebook group set up for participants of the workshop is a valuable 'meeting place' in which questions can be asked and experiences/ideas shared."
[Social Media workshop]
Mieke's self guided course gave me the knowledge I required to have a professional social media presence. The great thing was that I could study the course at my own pace and following the course I still have all the material to refer to. Mieke was always available to answer my queries and tailor the course to my specific needs.
If you're a therapist and need/want your own website and aren't skilled enough to do it yourself (that's definitely me) send Mieke a message! She designed my awesome website for my private practice about 4 years ago and is so great about letting me know when updates need to be done or if I might want to think about refreshing something.
Though Mieke is extremely talented in creating bold, eye-catching but subtle websites, one of her best features is her promptness! She is always so quick to respond to any query I have.
She is also very affordable which is important if you are starting out to have your own practice. Mieke also helped me out before designing my website. I had so many questions and wasn't sure what I even wanted to have on my website if I had one. We talked through my goals and what kind of therapist I wanted to be seen as. She's a great business coach for therapists (knows her stuff) and super creative at helping you get the tools to expand your business/yourself.
I highly recommend sending Mieke a quick message to get the ball rolling, you won't be disappointed.
Mieke Haveman might be one of the original professionals to look at how to help an online practice grow. She is well respected across Europe & further afield and her students loved working with her. She has an easiness to build interpersonal relations with others.
Mieke built www.onlinetraininforcounsellors.com and keeps on top of updates and backing up. She offers ideas on how to keep the webpages up to date and interesting. Definitely worth recommending for marketing & IT.
[Free Instagram course]
This course was very timely, I recently signed up for Instagram not understanding how it worked and then discovered I could only post via my phone. I emailed an image to myself on my phone and uploaded to Instagram that way but it was very clumsy and I haven't used it since. By doing your course I have now linked our facebook page to instagram and have just posted my first post from Hootsuite. Your course is very easy to follow, love the videos. Very useful. Thanks Mieke and I look forward to doing another of your courses.
[About Facebook Business Page self-study course]
The introduction to new platforms such as Feedly and Canva was really useful, I always thought therapists were scouring the internet for stories to share on their news feed! how naive was I (Lol)
On a more personal note, I found your voice to be calming and it soothed any anxiety or worry around the technical aspects of the course (Well done you)
