I'm going for my psychology degree and I'm going to become a counselor and hopefully to be a Psychologist! I'm wanting to start my life coaching visit and wondering if you think it would take off.

It's by income per session, I do reaching goals, time management, education help, internet using, Facebook, email, setting emails to smart phones, Google+, Blackboard, Microsoft word and other things.

Is anyone interested?

Such a proposition requires more information. What type of psychology do you stand behind? Freud? James? Jung? Not to imply a hierarchy, but most psychologists that I've met have an affinity toward one of the three.
Being a psychologist is good, no drugs, just (presumably) actual effective help; but where do you stand on psychiatric pharmacology?
So far as I know, a psychologist doesn't take the Hippocratic Oath. I may be mistaken, if not, do you practice within the guidelines of The Oath?
Are you seeking patients on here, colleagues, or just anecdotal or rhetorically obfuscated advice?

I was hoping to start a consulting business to help with people's lives. I was just curious if anyone would actually pay for the help. I'm not referring to any oath or psychology, which is a dream Im following, Im just asking about consultancy in general.

I did the same thing for OCTC and yeah it is a waste of time out on the real world. If people were too silly not to get the free help when it was offered, nobody will obviously pay for it either...

That one wasn't the original poster, that one is a troll that likes to belittle everything I say on the grounds that I am a cable technician, ergo I must be dumb or something. As if one's occupation is a reflection of one's intellect.
Little known fact, Albert Einstein was a telegrapher; I'm not saying I'm an Einstein, but where would we be if people were so ignorant to discredit him by saying "E doesn't = MC^2, don't quit your day job telegrapher!" lol ;)

Don't worry, you were born a nobody and you'll die a nobody. You'll just look like a douche in the meantime.

Einstein worked in a patent office. He once use a telegraph as an analogy to explain how radio works. A telegraph is like a very long cat, whose head is in New York and tail is in a distant city. You pull its tail in the distant city, and it says meow in New York. And radio works the same way, but without the cat.
You're right, I was mistaken, thank you for the correction.
So we can substitute telegrapher with patent office technical assistant :)
really?

I mean no offense, but most of what you listed (Internet, email, etc.) are taught in early education. And like you said they teach these things at the community college, as well as high and middle schools, community centers, libraries. Why then would someone pay for these services from an individual when they can receive the same services from a learning institution? It just does not seem like a feasible business plan.

If you're studying to be a psychologist, and want to start at the beginning, the beginning of psychologist is psycho.

But, actually, you need real life experience, because psychologists are sheltered from real life. If you need income while studying to be a psychologist, you should get a job in a supermarket, unloading boxes from trucks, unpacking the boxes, and putting the stuff on the shelves. That way you won't go through life totally inexperienced in what real life is like. What good is a psychologist who doesn't understand his patients' real lives because he has no experience in real life?
You are naive. Most people don't go get a Ph.D in psychology because they have had a sheltered life. It takes compassion and empathy. A college degree or an advanced degree don't make you shelter...just disciplined. If the O.P. wants to be a psychologist, I recommend brushing up on your analytical skills. Most Ph.Ds have the top test scores and graduate in the top of their class. They usually get full rides plus a stipend.....that is why it is so difficult to get in. Just because you ace your undergraduate psychology courses doesn't mean you will have what it takes for graduate school.

You need to get your education first. When you start charging a fee, you set yourself up for lawsuits. Psychologist and counselors carry liability insurance.

Lol. Freud, Jung, or James. Rarely do counselors have a theoretical orientation based on those three. I suspect you don't know what you are talking about. Today, many psychologist are cognitive behavioralist, humanist, or have an eclectic orientation.
