Our training is now available online, on a monthly enrollment basis. The online training is run part time over 12 weeks. You start with a group at the beginning of a month and work with that group over the 12 weeks of your training.
Each week, you will need around 6.5 hours to dedicate to the training. You will have 3-4 video modules to watch, written exercises to complete, additional reading to do and attendance at a weekly, online live group call.
You will also be expected to have 1 -2 case study clients to work with from week 4 onwards, to ensure you are confident in using the program material and can iron out any issues before you graduate.
An 80% attendance on live calls and at least one case study client is required to be signed off as an Eating Freely Practitioner and be awarded CPD points.
Our vision is to create a training and support community like nothing else. Apart from CPD approved clinical training, our Therapists benefit from both training in local marketing and centralised marketing from Eating Freely HQ.
Ready to Go branded marketing materials, peer support from our community, and regular peer group supervision are all benefits of joining us.
You will also have access to ongoing updated content both for your clients and yourself via the Eating Freely Practitioners App.
Part of our training includes a comprehensive consultation process for clients enquiring about the program. We give you step by step support in featuring Eating Freely on your website (if you have one), accepting and conducting online consultations, and guiding clients through the process of joining the program. All of our Practitioners are featured on the Eating Freely website with easy contact buttons for local clients to connect with you.
You can do as much or as little marketing as you wish. Not only can you confidently offer online consultations, but you can also run free talks in your area, advertise with local GP’s and medical centres, and offer a free 1 hour webinar and/or a full one day workshop that potential clients pay to attend – all ‘Done For You’ through our Community Resources for Therapists.
