GO NICHE!

NICHE DOWN ON MENTAL HEALTH
23% of adults experienced anxiety or depression before the pandemic.
46% of adults experienced anxiety or depression in early 2021 (www.ons.gov.uk). 

You can make a massive impact on the health of the nation, transform people's lives and open the door to a huge client base. But before you get too excited...

Adherence among those with anxiety and depression is notoriously poor. But all is not lost...

Because mindfulness, CBT and hypnotherapy are all proven to enhance mental health, increase adherence and greatly improve your client outcomes. You're back in the game!

NICHE DOWN ON PAIN

Another niche market for you as a personal trainer is the area of persistent low back pain. As with poor mental health, it has a profound impact at the levels of the individual and wider society, given that it affects around one-third of the UK adult population each year. But again, similar to poor mental health, adherence is particularly poor among this group. 

That's why all of the courses on the Online Clinic have specialist modules on pain psychology. Again, Mindfulness, CBT and Hypnotherapy are proven to help manage persistent pain. There's even a specialist module for Sleeping Better with Persistent Pain! 

GET HAPPY!

You are in the business of behaviour change. Successful long-term change comes from making good health-related decisions most of the time for a long time. 

Making just one or two bad decision can reduce motivation, cause low mood and result in relapse. Sometimes an irreversible relapse!

To put it bluntly, you are in the results business, but your results can often be determined by things apparently outside of your control.

This can be frustrating, I know, and it can mean that you aren't enjoying your work as much as you could, or even should. 

There's something you should know about the psychology of decision-making...

THE good news

Happy people are more optimistic and resilient, they have stronger self-control  and they make better decisions about their health. 

I'm sure you know that our mood has a direct influence over our eating behaviours. Research has shown that when we are sad or down we eat comfort food, but when we are happy we are much more likely to eat fresh fruit and vegetables.

What's more, a Harvard study has shown that people who have a happier and more optimistic disposition are more likely to exercise regularly than their less happy counterparts. They  also found that exercisers who had the highest levels of happiness were the least likely to become inactive over the study’s 11 year lifespan.

THE DISCERNING CLIENT

Potential clients are becoming much more discerning when it comes to their health and fitness. They are also very willing to shop around for someone who stands out from the rest.

Let's face it, you need more than bulging biceps or washboard abs to keep your clients motivated for long enough to get the results they demand. 

When it comes to motivation the science is clear: emotion drives behaviour. Yes, you can use your vast reservoir of knowledge to advise people what to do, but there's something you should be aware of... 

Nobody cares how much you know until they know how much you care!

So, happy people make better decisions, emotion drives behaviour and potential clients are looking for that something extra from their personal trainers. You are going to like this next bit... 

Good Mental Health Online is a unique initiative whereby personal trainers can send a clickable link to every one of their clients, opening the door to an entire online clinic of Mindfulness, CBT,  hypnotherapy and 'Sleeping Better'!

Good mental health is about much more than the absence of anxiety or depression, it's about functioning at your full potential.

What is the Online Clinic? 

*A  unique initiative for health and fitness professionals. Improve the health of your business by improving the psychological wellbeing of your clients.  A 'must have' for those who work in rehabilitation or with special populations!

*Your clients receive 24/7 access on their computer, tablet or smartphone to the evidence-based interventions of Mindfulness, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy and Hypnotherapy.

*As if that's not enough there's a course for overcoming insomnia and sleeping better with pain, which combines the proven strategies of iCBT and self-hypnosis.

*There is absolutely no cost to your clients - they are going to love you for this investment in your new clinical service!

*For those of you working with special populations, such as GP Referrals, these courses have specific modules for persistent pain. There's also a separate educational course for 'Understanding Pain with Metaphor and Science'.

*All of the courses are updated regularly, which is why I call them 'living courses'.

*The courses are presented in a Talking Workbook format, but they are also available as pdfs.

*A qualified psychologist is available for answering questions and for checking-in with progress.

*Preferential rates are also available for 1-2-1 zoom sessions with Dr Pat Partington.

*Depending on the plan you choose, you also receive 10 CPD courses on motivation and mind-coaching. Delivered throughout the year following sign-up, these are crafted for professional as well as personal development.

Good mental health is about much more than the absence of anxiety or depression, it's about functioning at your full potential. 

“ The recordings are easy to use as I continue to work on improving myself, moving forward in a more constructive way than I have achieved with any previous treatments. The videos helped me target some very specific problem areas in my life, and has given me a lifelong framework of self-help in the future.”

“It has taught me that I can retrain my brain and that an anxious state of mind doesn't have to be my default setting. Everything was evidence-based and explained so I could understand the theory behind it, meaning I had more faith in it. I am looking forward to the future and not worrying about being anxious again.”  

“Hypnotherapy has been so beneficial to me because it has helped my understanding of how all the different aspects of my anxiety are connected. It has provided me with practical ways to rewire my brain and change the way my anxiety is activated. I can’t believe that just last month I wanted to quit University!”

Research shows that persistent pain is closely related to poor mental health. If you want to expand into the markets of rehabilitation or special populations, partnering with Good Mental Health Online is a no-brainer!

Happy clients make a healthy business!

View some free samples from  the Getting Started package, three comprehensive online courses that you can share with each and every one of your clients.

Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, the Gold Standard of all psychological interventions, which teaches you to improve your mental health by changing your thinking styles and your behavioural responses.

Mindfulness meditation, which brings you out of 'doing mode' and into the therapeutic here and now of 'being mode'.

Pain Education is central to something known as the biopsychosocial model of health and illness, which is the most up-to-date, evidence-based approach to managing pain. Once your clients understand that pain is an experience that incorporates biological, psychological and social elements, they will more clearly realise the benefits of psychologically informed treatment modalities. 

View some free samples from the Getting Better package, which gives your clients full access to the entire Online Clinic. So, as well as the CBT, Mindfulness and Pain Education courses available with the Getting Started package, you also receive:

Hypnotherapy, an evidence-based course that teaches deep relaxation alongside techniques for emotional control and thought restructuring, which I refer to as giving your thoughts the LASER treatment. Imagery rescripting sessions will reprogram your brain to respond more confidently in situations that once caused anxiety. Includes audio recordings for controlling pain.

Sleeping Better is a comprehensive approach that combines sleep education with sleep hygiene, blended with instruction for self-hypnosis for creating theta wave activity of the brain. This matches the brain activity of stage 3 sleep, from where you will gently drift down into deep, refreshing sleep. Includes audio recordings for sleeping better with pain. 

View some free samples from the Being Your Best package, which gives your clients full access to the entire Online Clinic. As well as this you also receive 10 CPD courses for your professional as well as personal development.

The first, entitled 'How to Win Friends and Influence Clients' begins with an understanding of the power of belief. Strategies are then developed for effective information-giving in ways that will not disrupt the other person's belief systems. In other words, you'll always be speaking your clients language! 

The fact is that telling people what to do doesn't work, but worse than that it actually reinforces resistance to change, which you can read all about in my book 'Motivation and the Solution Focused Mindset', which is available as a free download to those who have purchased the 'Getting Better' and 'Being Your Best' packages. Here's a clip from the first CPD lecture, just to give you a feel for things.

So now you know, when the world contradicts our beliefs rather than change our beliefs we'll distort our world to protect them.
