Online addiction treatment ?

I have a client who has a porn addiction. He's actually a respectable businessman who is married, got kids. After talking to him over the phone, i got a gut feeling that i personally wil not feel comfortable helping him. And i told him this. I also find it difficult to refer him to more specialized help because honestly, i don't know what else can help him besides hypnotherapy. The vast majority of hypnotists out here in my area are people who learn the late Jeffrey Stephens protocol, and think they can solve any problem the sun shines on, in just 1 session, by telling the SM the stop the problem. (i'm not here to unleash a discussion about direct hypnosis)

Can anyone recommend a solid hypnotherapist who is specialized on addictions, especially porn/sex addiction ?

Thanks alot!

4 year old who doesn't speak
Hi there,

There is a four year old boy who is not mentally ill who understands everything that is being said to him at home and at school, does not speak a single word. Not one. The parents went to every specialist they can and they just tell them that he's too young.

The parents want their son to speak. To start speaking.

What do you think? Any tips appreciated!

How can I sell my hypnosis business
Hi good and helpful people of hypnothoughts.

I have a very succesful hypnosis practice in Europe. I earn around 10.000 euro's from my own Sessions and i earn about 5.000 to 6.000 euro's from monthly commissions (other hypnotherapists working for me - i get paid a fee for every session i send them) Add to that one course every one to two months, monthly average income is about 18.000 euro's net.

I have a very strong appearance on the web, my website is ranking first place for many most searched terms related to hypnosis.

As to why i want to sell my business : i just about had it with Hypnosis. İ need some rest now before i figure out what to do next (im on the edge of a burnout).

Now my question would be : how can I sell my business? What is a fair price to ask? Where should i look for a buyer?

Converting an e-mail inquiry to an appointment...what's your trick ?

@jeff-dennison : don't be discouraged! If you take this seriously, you will earn a lot of money. Make sure your image, website, seo, office, everything about you is professional. Pay special attention to your website and seo. 

There is a book banyan wrote, it describes how a hypnotherapist should dress and behave. Also, Richard nongard has such a book. I don't Know their name anymore. Find them!

Converting an e-mail inquiry to an appointment...what's your trick ?

You know, there was a poll once on hypnothoughts about how much hypnotists earn here on a year basis. It was something like 5k to 15k per year if I'm not wrong, on average...i am now starting  to understand why. 

Why is it wrong to use marketing techniques to get more clients? Whats the worst thing that could happen if I use marketing tips to get more clients? How does using  marketing tips (most of wich I learnt from Craig Eubanks and Richard nongard) make you incongruent as a therapist? 

Food for thought. 

Would love to hear more opinions. 

Greetings

@venicestu : thanks for your input! I agree, 'tricking' doesn't sound right. However, there is a difference between a trick and tricking someone into anything.

I don't see a problem with using marketing techniques to make sure i earn as much money as i can, whilst helping people with 100% care and honesty. 

@fable : Dear fable, i finally found something i can disagree with you  :-)  I just don't want my clients to wait..some will wait forever. I have had many clients who came in my practice, not expecting anything to happen. They were my best clients, had the most phenomenal change. But i understand your point of view.

For me, earning a good income as a therapist is very important. This doesn't stop me from caring about my clients' wellbeing.

Nudging someone to book their appointment faster, is IMO no trickery or bad as long as they have a free will to make the appontment or not.

For the record : i have 6 offices and we net about $40.000 per month and about half of our clients find us through word ouf mouth.

Thanks all for your input!

Yes a fast response significantly increases the speed of email-to-appointment procedure. However, some people tend to delay this process, instead of booking right now, they book their sessions after one to two weeks... An unnecessary delay. 

To shorten the process of email-to-appointment , they need a reason, an extra motivation to book their sessions now and not a week or two later. 

Giving a fast and honest response is no doubt a must. However, some people need that extra push in the back to go ahead and book now. 

Greetings,
