How to Take on Potential Clients with Difficult Issues

Happy New Year, Hypno-Pros! Celeste and I are back again and we’re starting 2013 off with another episode on Hypnosis Etc. on

The Secret Language of FeelingsIn this latest episode, Celeste and I discuss how to tackle difficult issues that some clients may need help with. We deal with clients who need hypnotherapy for other complex reasons than those who want to quit smoking or want to lose weight. We analyze the client’s situation and examine whether or not it is possible for the potential client to overcome their problems. We then describe two very important factors that most clients deal with — Age Regression and Initial Sensitizing Events.

Further into the video, I briefly describe the “feel bad, distract cycle,” which you can learn more about in my book, “The Secret Language of Feelings.” Celeste concludes our discussion by describing the differences between Hypnosis vs. Guided Imagery. Watch this video to get an in-depth understanding of how to cope with a potential client and their struggles.

    Happy New Year everyone. Thank you Celeste, for sharing your thoughts on working from home. Until 2 years ago, I also saw clients in my home.

    I wanted to chime in with two more important things a new, working-from-home, hypnotist needs to know. Forgive me for posting it up here under the new podcast, but I wanted to make sure it is seen.

    1. From the moment you have strangers setting foot in your door, you are exposed to additional liability. Most basic homeowner’s insurance policies are limited in coverage, $300-$500K of personal liability. It would be wise to talk with you property casualty agent about an umbrella policy, which is an additional policy that would add from $1M to $10M of coverage. This would provide additional protection from any personal injury lawsuits.

    2. A new hypnotist should talk to their attorney or accountant about the disadvantages of a sole proprietorship, and look into other options for business ownership, such as an LLC, which would create a barrier from their personal assets. As a sole proprietor, their personal assets are at risk.

    Sorry to be so basic, but it is best not to assume everyone knows this.

    Keep up the good work. Glad to see you back Celeste!

    Love and Light,

    Cynthia Thurman

    Thank you for chiming in! You are right on the money about the insurance and the sole proprietorship. Most people do not know about umbrella policies and how cheap they are. VERY good point.

    Hello Cynthia – Thanks for the comment. You always have something important to contribute that is well thought out.

    Happy New Year,

    I talked to my insurance agent about the umbrella policy and found my insurance for doing business out of my house had been changed to nonexistetn!  So it sure makes sense to check your insurance this time a year and see if you are over or under insured not only with things like this but in auto, health, homeowners, and life insurance.

    Thanks for this. I work in Great Britain but working from home of course I also have to have the relevant insurance in place. I do find that the fact I have a separate extension with its own restroom and entrance makes a huge difference to the way that clients perceive the business. I know many other therapists who perhaps practice in a bedroom and its always something that clients see as not perfect.

    I do actually know how to spell separate.  I wonder why it came out that way LOL!
