Prepare for LPA Counseling Practitioner Videos

Be sure to be ready, on Skype, in a quiet place with a strong Internet connection at the time of our recording. The three most important things as far as setup are:

  1. Camera should be at your eye height
  2. Camera should be steady – not hand held
  3. Light should coming from in front of you, not behind.

You should use the Smartphone holder that I sent to the office.

Please test your Skype App prior to our filming. Skype can be tricky, and you may not have used it in a long time. We want things to move smoothly on filming day.
On the device you’ll be using during our call (your smartphone most likely) click on this link and confirm that you get to the screen “Meeting with Brighton” and you see yourself on screen (instead of my cute puppy Nugget) like you see to the right.

Sample website video from Larry

The first video is for the website. The content outline is similar for each person so that we may have consistency. Ideally, you should write out a quick outline – not a script. If you prepare a script, you are likely to get stuck in your head trying to remember the exact words.
Each point will be recorded separately, so you won’t need to memorize anything.
  1. Who are you and what are your credentials?
  2. What is your philosophy or personal story?
  3. What excites you about your practice / passion?
  4. What do clients need to know about you / your style?
  5. Invitation to schedule an appointment.

Sample Psych Today video from Larry

The second video is for Psychology Today profiles. These are maximum 20 seconds long, so they are more of just an introduction and call to action. 

This will be a very short version of the first video. 

  1. Introduce yourself.
  2. One or two important pieces of information.
  3. Invitation to reach out.
