The Psych Course Creation Blueprint

Expert Guidance to Help You Formulate, Create, and Launch a Standout Online Course, Program, or Training

A comprehensive, step-by-step online program for psychologists and registered mental health professionals.

This Program is now available as self-study, so you can enrol and begin at any time!

Self-Paced Modules | Step-by-Step Tutorials | Guides & Prompts | Peer Support Community

Are you a creative practitioner who’d love to follow your professional passion and distill your knowledge and expertise into a scalable self-help course or a guided group coaching program?

Join me and let's make this dream a reality, together!

Here is how it works…

The PCC Blueprint is an in-depth online Program that will take you through the steps of formulating, outlining, structuring, organising, setting-up, and validating your online training, as well as mapping out your course launch plan.

Through a blend of practical self-paced modules, guided step-by-step tutorials, and monthly group-coaching/Q&A calls this Program combines strategic guidance with implementation support to help you gain momentum with creating your first (or next) online offer

When you enrol, you will receive instant access to comprehensive self-paced modules and guided tutorials, so you can start working through the Program at your own pace, while the monthly live calls will provide the much-needed structure, support, and guidance with all things creativity, compliance, troubleshooting, and tech.

Throughout this Program you will discover the crucial steps that you need to complete before investing your precious time, resources, and energy into actually creating your entire course, so that you can lay a strong foundation from which to create and launch your online program with a bang.

Created by a clinical psychologist and online interventions expert, this program is designed exclusively for registered mental health professionals who’d love to expand their solo private practice beyond selling 1:1 clinical sessions, and set-up an e-learning arm to their business focused on empowerment, skill-based learning, prevention, and personal development.

It is suitable for practitioners who’d love to create a signature self-help course, a group coaching program, a monthly membership, or CPD training designed to support fellow professionals.

This program is for you if you already have an idea of the training you’d love to create, but haven’t had the chance to refine it or learn about all of the steps required to turn your idea into a successful and profitable online product.

“I designed this Program for a dedicated practitioner like you, who wants to learn how to do things yourself and understand the intricacies of the e-learning product creation, set-up, and launch process, so you can be confidently in charge of developing this passion-focused area of your beautiful business. I absolutely cannot wait to see what you create!” – Dr Natalie Kladnitski, Founder & E-Learning Business Mentor

Don’t just create an online course – learn the essential business skills you need to succeed!

“Natalie’s coaching and knowledge of ethical marketing and tech has been invaluable in my process of developing an online course. I’ve done similar training in the past, however the training I’ve received from Natalie has surpassed any such training in terms of quality and depth. Natalie also goes above and beyond in providing online Facebook support”.
– Clinical Psychologist & Private Practice Owner, Sydney

What does it take to create a profitable, in-demand online course or group coaching program?

Over the years I invested tens of thousands of dollars into popular online programs that promised to teach me how to create a profitable, in-demand online course and how to turn this course into a powerful source of passive income within my business…

I created online courses as a researcher and employee, as a contractor, as a consultant and in various shapes and forms for my own solo coaching practice.

I created clinical treatment courses, self-help courses, business courses, and group programs with varying degrees of financial success.

I hit many roadblocks and learned many lessons, had certain triumphs and many a setbacks along the way.

What I know now (and what I teach my 1:1 practitioner clients) is that gaining traction with online courses as a viable revenue stream takes patience, perseverance, a sprinkle of the magic that is ‘timing’ and above all… a certain overall strategy.

A strategy which at first glance seems counterintuitive.

But a strategy that, in the end, saves you time, effort, money, and energy, as well as ensures that what you create has a good chance of success.

Contrary to what all the popular course creation programs taught me, this strategy is not linear.

This strategy also doesn’t involve you learning how to do everything in one go, because formulating a powerful course and executing a powerful launch are two vastly different set of skills, each needing care, attention, and practice to truly master.

Which is why this Program is designed to help focus on formulating and validating a powerful online product first, before you can confidently invest your resources into launching it with a bang!

“The Psych Course Creation Blueprint is very clearly structured and easy to follow.  I especially like that Natalie is a psychologist and can answer all those vague concerns that we usually have about moving from 1:1 therapy towards building groups and courses.  It gives me peace of mind to be well-informed from someone who has so much experience in this area.” – Clinical Psychologist & Director,  Victoria

Frequently Asked Questions

There is no other Program like this out there on the market.

Yes it is a bold statement. Here is why:

I have been working in the online space for a very long time (nearly a decade), and if you name an online course creation program out there, it is very likely that I’ve done it.

I’ve gathered some of the best online business building strategies and blended them with the principles of ethical, evidence-based psychological practice.

This Program won’t just show you how to create, set-up, and launch an online course in a simple, step-by-step way – it will also:

  • teach you the underlying business principles,
  • flag what to watch out for,
  • call-out popular practices to avoid, and
  • suggest options and support you with selecting the right strategy for you

… so that you can leave the Program feeling equipped to run an effective, successful, ethical, compliant, profitable, and aligned online business.

This Program is not a simple regurgitation of surface level marketing tactics or motivational fluff.

Your reputation and the public’s perception of psychologists matter to me, so I have taken great care to design this Program to be the best training for registered health professionals out there.

The Program contains 6 core modules, which are broken down into 3-4 lessons.

Each Module contains about 1-2 hours of teaching accompanied by implementation worksheets, checklists, and prompts.

Fortnightly group coaching usually last between 60-90 minutes (depending on how many practitioners join live). If you are unable to attend live, you will be able to listen to the audio replay of the call – I list the questions/topics that we covered on the calls.

I will also be releasing various additional materials (e.g., mini-masterclasses) that are designed to complement your learning throughout the next six months, the time commitment to complete those might vary.

You have two options for completing the Program:

  1. Go through all of the Modules first relatively quickly, then go back again and begin to implement what you’ve learned.
  2. Take it one Module at a time and begin working on your course as you go.

In this round I’ve allocated 1 month per Module – we are all very busy practitioners and I found that this is a nice pace to actually get things done, though, of course you can implement things much faster!

If you diligently allocate 1-2 hours per week to completing the Program and working on your course, you should be ready for launch just ahead of the new year (which is a great time to launch new things!)

You will have access to the core Course Materials for 2 years from the date of purchase, so regardless of how busy you are right now, you can start laying a strong foundation from which to launch your online offer with a bang down the track at a pace that suits you.

Our Momentum Monthly Calls are held on Wednesdays at 12pm AWST (Perth) time, and so far the slots are as follows: 6/07, 3/08, 31/08, 28/09, 26/10, 23/11).

Please note any daylight savings time changes in your state.

Nope! I love to keep these calls simple – you are welcome to join live, pop-by throughout, leave when you need, have your camera on or off, ask questions on video or via chat, or submit your questions ahead of time.

I usually begin the calls by answering some questions that came in via e-mail to give everyone a chance to arrive and settle in.

The calls are recorded and the audio replay is uploaded into the Program Portal.

I am unlikely to offer this level of support (i.e., fortnightly group coaching calls for 6 months) as part of the Program again.

The Program itself will remain available and offered in a variety of versions going forward (the current price and $2,000+ bonus inclusions combination will not be repeated again).

At this stage I am unsure of the exact dates when there will be another live round, though it will likely run again live next year.

While the Program is designed primarily for practitioners who are looking to design and develop a “one-to-many” group offer – like an online course, coaching program, monthly membership, or CPD training – the principles are equally applicable if you wanted to start by designing and developing a standout, niched private practice offering a 1:1 service.

If you’d love to become known as a go-to practitioner for a particular presentation, problem, goal, or therapeutic approach, and set-up a standout Telehealth practice, this Program is for you too!

Yes! While the Program is tailored specifically for psychologists and mental health professionals wanting to teach evidence-based psychological strategies, it will be applicable to any registered health professional who wants to create an online course based on their knowledge and expertise within their scope of practice.

It will also be applicable to any registered health professional wanting to create CPD training.

I also warmly welcome therapists and coaches who may not be registered with a governing body, but who value ethical, evidence-based practices and have an appropriate level of training and expertise to teach others.

Yes! Because the Program is designed and delivered by a Clinical Psychologist and we often discuss ethical/clinical/practice-based issues among a group of registered practitioners on our live calls you can earn CPD points.

I keep a record of group call dates and provide a brief bullet-point outline of what we covered on the calls.

As a general guide, if you join the live call and have a practice-related question (versus a purely business-related question) you can claim a portion of the call as peer consultation.

If you listen to the replay you can claim a portion of the call as CPD.

I am also planning other ways to provide opportunities to earn active CPD hours.

I leave it up to each individual practitioner to decide what they claim and how it fits with their learning plan.

The Program also includes access to 3 of my signature CPD webinars so you can claim at least 6 CPD hours from completing those.

While I am not an accountant and you should always check with a qualified tax agent, because the Program is focused on helping you set up an online business foundation so you can create an additional income stream in your practice, it can be claimed as a professional development expense (either under CPD or business development).

A pay-in-full option is available here should you wish to claim the Program as an expense in the current financial year. Please note, the Program price does not include GST.

“I have to say, I’m so enjoying the newfound confidence and momentum I’m gaining from the course. It feels amazing to have clarity on the questions that were bothering me and to be flying along after many months of feeling stuck with these ideas. I’m in a pretty good space, having one of those moments where I’m literally amazed at how far I’ve come since starting the program. It’s really unlocked my motivation!” – Clinical Psychologist, Perinatal Specialist and Practice Owner, WA
