A good solid education and background in psychology and counselling is the only thing that one should have in their background if they are to benefit clients that really need help. there are bad psychics out there (normally they are shuteyes) that overstep their bounderies and give advice they shouldn't however, regardless of their training, whether or not they used cold reading techniques or so called NLP to provide them with information, if they are not experienced to give "personal advice" to help with problems, they should NOT be doing that. They should be gently moving their sitters towards the professional help they need.

BTW - I do have both a psychology and counselling background (read that as University degree training) and actually do know what I am talking about in this regard.

Tradecraft an ebook at http://www.trickshop.com is pretty cool, and compared to the competition, pretty inexpensive!

While I do agree with you most what you say.. even the simplest of readings should be up beat and positive. That alone will benefit the sitter. I can't see any reason why anyone would want a reading if they did not benefit from it in some way. And many people who do come for readings are looking for help which they believe they will get from the reading. Readings should help people otherwise apart from the odd piece of entertainment why would anyone want one?

And I have worked with many of people over the years and find that most traditional counselling prolongs problems. It doesn't help. Many months of counselling can in many cases be replaced with one long breakthrough session lasting 6-8 hours. The point I was making earlier is that NLP is more than eye patterns or reading a book.

There is a monograph on combining handwriting analysis and Myer-Briggs types for readings. The Myer-Briggs types are based upon the work of C.G. Jung.
The name of the monograph is "Type Graphology" and it is available from H&R Magic Books.
