Get Unstuck! Five Blog Topic Titles for Therapists and Coaches

17 Jul 2014

(c) 2014 by Deah Curry PhD

Lately some of my website-build clients have felt stuck when it comes to blogging.  You all know it’s a good marketing method, that it helps get traffic to your website, and that Google loves fresh content on a frequent basis.  But psychologists, social workers, couples counselors, marriage therapists, and coaches all  tell me that you just don’t know what to write.


Maybe this will help.  Here are 5 ideas for topics, titles, and subheads that should fit many private practices. Pick and choose from among the proposed subheads – you might not want to use all of them, or your writing might take you elsewhere, and that’s good.  Just use these to spark your writing.


Note – be sure to tweak title and subhead wording a bit so that you are creating unique client and SEO attractors for your blog.  Oh, and hint….. each of these subheads could also make a nice blog title.

Why I've Retired

It's possible this will come as a surprise to you -- it certainly has snuck on me that I'm well past retirement age. Over the last year or so, my heart has been pulled in other directions, and while I still love the creative aspects of website design, I want to use my time making a life rather than devoting my energies to making a living. So I plan to travel, attend writers' retreats, work on learning to take good iPhone photos, and just be open to where my spirit guides take me. I have also stepped back from my esoteric work for 2020, and who knows what the future holds for that.

Please see the blog post for my two Wix designers who have earned my highest recommendations for serving my client niche.

All the Best to You!
