In July I will officially qualify as a Cognitive Hypnotherapist.
I am obviously already seeing and helping a number of people but until I qualify I can't charge for this service. So I am going full steam ahead to get everything ready.
My new website can be found at www.thinkitchangeit.com
I need to get a professional photo done of myself, complete the blog and the specialisation pages but everything else is complete. No pricing yet because I can't charge yet. I also need to decide what to do in the banner because lovely though the photo is, it's confusing because you might think that it's a child related business and I'm not sure it won't put some clients off. All feedback on the whole site is very much appreciated.
I have also planned a garage conversion and started to get the quotes. Here is my basic layout
I am planning on specialising in weight loss and pain management initially(as well as seeing a stream of clients for any issues) I have just developed a recording to help sufferers of chronic on going pain and have a few people testing it. My hope is to provide a few copies to a local pain clinic as a free product trial and hopefully get a research project kicked off with it.
My plan is to start off doing evenings and weekend afternoon sessions initially until I can build up the business but one day this will be all that I do and I couldn't be happier with that prospect! The brilliant thing is, having seen a whole range of clients already, I am building up a great client ref base for my site. And when one of my clients becomes and ex-smoker, he's agreed to be a reference for me for hooking up to the local gps too.
These are exciting times!
