Does Online Therapy, Online Coaching, and Online Courses Work?

Blog Uncategorized Online Sessions Breakthrough Coaching 5 min read

In a nutshell, and in a word, yes and no.

It’s a no if you don’t understand the nuances of how to transition what you do and online and know what won’t work and why. It’s a BIG definite YES if you have tried and tested processes and know how to make the adjustments for not having your client sitting in front of you, and being able to manage the remote and online environment and space because it’s not just a case of doing what you do offline online.

“Marilyn is truly spectacular. I was lucky enough to work with her remotely whilst I am based in Australia. I did the (online) Breakthrough Session, and it was both challenging but so rewarding.”

In this Blog I have shared results and testimonials from my online clients and online Workshop attendees to give you a flavour of the results you can achieve and what to expect from programs and processes specifically designed to work online.

How Do You Choose When Everyone is Now an Online and Remote Working Expert?

I have been offering Online Coaching, Online Training, Online Courses, and Online Therapy since 2005; 15 years before the #pandemic #pivot so everything I do is tried and tested and refined to ensure it is suitable for online delivery, and translates across the atlantic. I have also been a Flexible and Remote Working Implementation Consultant since 2003, which means going into organisations to write, deliver and implement remote working policy and strategy.

I had a discussion with marketing guru Jay Abraham this month, May 2021, I’ve been asked about the rise of online consultants and coaches in the wake of the pandemic because several people have had unsatisfactory experiences. I asked Jay how to frame that from my perspective of working in the online space for almost 2 decades. Some of his response to my question is below:

“Talk from a position of depth. You could say: There are many people who have emerged as consultants and I know most of the ones who are reputable and their knowledge is very valuable for what they do. If all you want is the basics, I think you should turn to them, but if you want to go deep, I’ve had the ability of looking at this from the vantage point of years of experience; I understand how to get 20-30% more productivity, more engagement, and identify areas which to my surprise and fascination, no one has ever really brought out.”

Whether it’s about confidence, clarity, increasing your focus and concentration, breakthrough mental barriers, increasing your productivity, overcoming imposter syndrome, next levelling your public speaking skills, or getting re-focused and energised about life, you can do it all remotely and online.

MP3 Replay Audio Recording’s

Below is the feedback from one of my clients who couldn’t make a live teleseminar session so listened to the audio replay recording.

What was doubly fascinating about Pippa’s testimonial is that she described in detail the order and sequence of what I was doing and the symbols I was using, even though that information was known only to me and not discussed during the recording. Huna, and the remote work really is amazing.
