Here are some ways to get hypnotherapy clients when youre just starting out.

  • Market yourself

    Market yourself Marketing is one of the most important elements of any business, without marketing yourself clients will never know you exist. With people turning to Google for advice and to find local businesses creating a simple website and opening social media profiles can attract new clients. Think of it as an online brochure where potential clients can find out about you and your services. Ensure you are honest, professional and authentic in everything you publish online- people form an impression in just 15 seconds! So don’t forget to showcase your qualification on your website…this helps create trust. Ask clients for feedback and testimonials, these are powerful in helping clients make decisions.

  • Create and share content

    Social media is an excellent marketing tool when used consistently, potential clients will often click through to your social media to find out more about you and your business. By sharing relevant, interesting and engaging content, you can grow an audience and offer your services to a loyal group of prospective clients. Facebook and Instagram are excellent platforms to engage with users; both have pages and resources exclusively for businesses. They are free and easy to set-up. 

  • Networking

    Networking Networking is a great way to meet people and spread the word about your fantastic new business. Platforms like LinkedIn allow you to connect with mentors and like-minded practitioners virtually. You might also benefit from local networking events for hypnotherapists and wellness practitioners.

  • Spread the word

    Spread the word Word of mouth is an excellent way to grow your business. Asking your friends and family to share your website, business card, or social media profile is free, and it can quickly generate interest and attract new patients.

  • Find a professional therapy room

    When you’re just starting, it is often impractical and unnecessary to rent or buy a therapy room. Despite this, your patients will still expect a comfortable and professional setting for their appointment. We have a professional therapy rooms at The Devon Clinic that we offer out to qualified Diploma students on attractive terms.

  • Find a niche

    Do you have an area within hypnotherapy that you want to focus on? Finding a niche can help you to grow your business? By finding your specialist area, you can attract a more specific group of clients and work in an area of genuine interest. Common niche areas include pain management, smoking cessation, weight loss, phobias and more. We offer a niche training session for qualified hypnotherapists contact us to find out when the next one is running.

  • Be accessible and approachable

    How easy is it for a client to get in contact with yoo? Are your contact details visible on your website? Do you have a chat facility for clients who may not feel entirely comfortable with talking on the phone. Ensure you are accessible, confidential, and professional when speaking to clients at all times. Approachability is equally essential- particularly for people who haven’t tried hypnotherapy before. You should patiently explain the process and ensure your client feels comfortable even if you are nervous or uncertain.
