What are your most common type of clients?
Tobacco cessation (smoking and chewing tobacco), weight loss, improving sleep and performance enhancement (sales/sports) represent approximately 40% of my clients most weeks. However, I also see a number of other common problems on a regular basis. For a partial list of what might come in my door on a weekly basis click HERE.
What are your most unusual type of clients?
I don’t have any unusual clients. Certain problems are more rare. But there are overarching patterns to human behavior. Many problems that are more rare share behavioral traits with more common problems.
I have a fundamental belief that people are not their behaviors and I believe that any behavior CAN be changed! Sometimes, a very good person can be struggling with a very difficult or unique problem. Often, I feel like a Modern Jedi Master: I have clients that come to me after they have tried every mainstream solution they can imagine. About once a week, someone says to me, “I have tried everything to solve this problem. Hypnosis is the last thing that I’m going to try and then I am going to give up.” It is as if they are saying, “Help me Obi Wan Kenobi, you are my only hope!”
Most of the time, I can help that person or can steer them to someone who can. Hope is real.
