‘Using Social Media For Your Therapy Business & Facebook Live’ with Alison Brown

Social media is a free marketing tool for your therapy practice with the use of different platforms – Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Pinterest and LinkedIn to name a few. Many therapists have a Facebook Page but, many do not use it or use it to benefit and create clients.

This talk will cover why social media and blogging is good for business and why it is used as a marketing tool, plus, why and how to use Facebook Live in getting to your clients and building relationships and expertise.

Also, the game changer that saves time!

Alison Brown has been running her own therapy business since 2000. After finishing training and previously being a stay at home married mum of two, Ali had no idea how to run a business. So over the years she has done much training and learning about running a business and in 2013 decided to help other therapists in a similar position. Ali’s Therapy Academy was built to share her knowledge and experiences and to help therapists. FHT LSG for Worthing, West Sussex and Ambassador

‘Homeopathy & Me’ with Julia Karen Richardson

I have been a member of the FHT for 20 years. I am a trained Aromatherapist and Reflexologist (specialising in fertility and maternity) Qualified also in Indian Head Massage & the original LaStone Therapy & Spiritual Healing. My main passion is Homeopathy and after many years of study was awarded a Licentiate. I am also the student mentor for ‘Southern College Of Homeopathy’ in Tunbridge Wells. In 1999 I felt it was time to offer people the opportunity to take responsibility for their own health and to explore different approaches to medicine other than those generally being offered.

With this in mind I opened The Mews Clinic in the Old Town offering complementary health care. As this was one of the first clinics of its kind to be opened in Eastbourne the practice has always been extremely busy. Homeopathy is controversial and has its share of bad press but it is an amazing form of medicine, gentle but powerful and works with your body not against it. Homeopathy has over 200 million worldwide users and has been available for over 200 years. Unbeknown by most it is available on the NHS and our Royal family have used and supported the practice since the 1830’s, also reflecting its long standing presence in our health care system.

I would like to share my journey into Homeopathy with you as I truly believe it helped to save my life. I don’t just practice Homeopathy, I have become a Homoeopath and, as you will discover, I certainly try to walk my talk.
