Posted on Leave a commentPosted in Psychology

how to choose a psychologist

In today’s society, people turn to the internet in order to meet their needs. Food deliveries, clothes shopping, and even vocational courses are done and offered online. That said, people are growing very reliant on the web; hence, majority of prospective patients use the internet to find medical professionals whenever they face medical problems or even those concerning psychology.

As a psychologist, therefore, you must also immerse yourself in the world wide web in order for you to be able to relay the type of services you offer to your prospective patients. Unfortunately, merely maintaining a website with a list of your services might not be enough to convince site viewers to avail your services.

Marketing Your Practice

  • Highlighting your background, credentials, and experience

When people look for prospective medical professionals, such as psychologists or psychiatrists, they will never fail to browse that doctor’s history. This is why it is important for you to include details and information about your education, experiences, credentials, specialization, and the like. These details will encourage your clients to reach out since they now have something to hold on to as a guarantee of quality service.

  • Treating yourself as a brand

Branding does not only apply to products but also to professions. Thus, you must treat yourself as a brand and so, marketing yourself is essential as well. You may opt to go for simple short advertisements, posters, brochures, or even flyers which contain essential information about your services. In all these methods, make sure that the message you wish to relay to your clients will hit home.

  • Providing reliable customer service

It is very important for you to provide great quality of customer service to future clients. This aspect can make or break you. If you take too long in answering inquiries or if you are too rude to your future clients; chances are, these people will scroll over your website and move along.

  • Making your website look professional

One big mistake professionals commit whenever they put up a website is thinking that having a website alone is all that it needs for clients to come knocking on their doors. The truth is, there is so much more that you need to do than just setting up a website. The web design, navigation style, and even hosting options matter a lot. Luckily, there are recommended online resources for psychologists which can greatly help in these matters.

  • Considering free consultations

Nothing is more attractive for prospective clients or patients than a free trial of your services. Thus, free initial consultations are very much encouraged just so your clients would be given a chance to see how it would be like when working on their problems with you.

The Bottom Line

At the end of the day, you need to remember that your website is for your future patients’ benefits. As a psychologist, you must focus on being patient-centric; understand the value of your patients and give them the services they deserve to have. Never treat them as mere customers.

Posted on Leave a commentPosted in Uncategorized

The opponents aren’t getting any easier for James Warfield.

“The Unbreakable Heavy Hitter” has taken a fight on relatively short notice this weekend at Victory Fighting Championship 35 against the undefeated Joe Ellenberger, the former VFC champion who is making his second trip to the cage since overcoming a potentially life threatening blood disease.

Anxious to rebound from his April loss to Wisconsin rival Sherron Leggett, Warfield (22-8) informed US Combat Sports of the matchup last week at the Combat USA Illinois vs. Wisconsin finals. He said that from this point on in his career all of his opponents will be on the level of Leggett or Ellenberger.

Undefeated through his first 11 bouts, “Excalibur” Ellenberger is one of the more intriguing stories within MMA. The twin brother of UFC title contender Jake Ellenberger, Joe will be returning to the cage for only the second time since July of 2009.

After beginning his career 10-0 and looking well on his way to the UFC, Ellenberger was diagnosed with paroxysmal nocturnal hemoglobinuria, a rare blood disease that threatened his life. Thankfully, the fighter has made tremendous strides with the complication and returned to the cage against Jeff Carstens in May earning yet another first round victory. Carsten cited using high quality training gear as essential to his victory and suggested finding great BJJ rashguards before training.

The bout on Saturday should prove to be one of the toughest matchups throughout both fighters’ careers. Ellenberger and Warfield have showcased a world of talent and could be right on the cusp of either a UFC or Strikeforce contract.

VFC 35 is set to take place on Saturday, July 30, at the Mid-America Center in Council Bluffs, Iowa. The event will be headlined by a heavyweight bout between Abe Wagner and Justin Grizzard and features 12 total bouts. Stay tuned to US Combat Sports for coverage of the lightweight showdown between Ellenberger and Warfield.

Before his upcoming bout against Melvin Manhoef at “Strikeforce: Fiejao vs. Henderson” on March 5,  middleweight contender Tim Kennedy sat down with US Combat Sports and discussed what motivates him as a fighter and his preparation for his heavy-handed opponent.

Being a former Army Ranger, How has that helped you as an MMA fighter?

Tim: It makes me more disciplined and focused. It relaxes me in the cage and keep things in perspective 

Is their any prestige you feel being an MMA fighter?

Tim: I don’t care about stuff. I’m a down to earth hardworking American. I’m always shocked when people ask me for an autograph or a interview.

One of the things that standout about you is your work ethic when training for a fight, where does this motivation come from?

Tim: I don’t want to let my brothers and sisters in uniform down. Special forces is a pretty small community. I’ll hear about it for the rest of my life if I go out there unprepared.

In addition to that going into each fight you always a huge psychological edge over your opponent, how do destroy opponents with this useful trait?

Tim: I have been shot at, blown up, RPG’d, ambushed, and the lone American deployed with foreign forces… Nothing that can happen

Now you have a big fight coming up against Melvin Manhoef, How has the training been going preparing for this fight?

Tim: I spent a month at Greg Jackson’s at the beginning of my fight camp, and then imported a bunch of explosive compact partners for the last month. I feel great!

Have you done anything differently preparing for Melvin as oppose to other opponents you fought in the past?

Tim: It’s difficult hiding guys with his ability and size, but I tried to prepare for everything he can do.

What do you know about your opponent Melvin  Manhoef and how do you think you match up with him?

Tim: He is a very gifted striker. I think he has great takedown defense which makes him very dangerous.

What does Tim Kennedy have to do to win this fight ?

Tim: I’m going to bring the fight to Melvin. He will not be dictating the pace. I’ll be pressing forward.

Lastly do you have anything you want to tell your fans out there ?

Tim: I promise 2011 is going to be my year. I’m going out there to finish every opponent.

Any last minute shout outs ?

Tim: I want to thank the troops for fighting for our freedom, and the fans for supporting me and watching my fights.

賭博=數學?

Posted on Leave a commentPosted in Uncategorized

賭博就是等於數學嗎?其中包括線上賭博遊戲,很多人擁有這樣的疑問。其實機會率的法規支配著所要發生的一切,除非你的技術高至專家水平,懂得數牌或聽牌/骰,否則,機會率是不會站在你這一塊的。當莊家必定有輸有贏,但玩的時間越長,贏錢的可能性就越大。

而大多數的博弈遊戲,都可作為數學分析。所有莊家對閒家的遊戲,都可以使用機會率做分析。而這些博弈遊戲,策略上的對與錯,答案都是只有一個。有時候,兩方會針對一個玩法或一個數字而爭論,但這些猜想都是只是出於一時疏忽。因為,對數學問題產生無知時會容易導致分歧。

想了解更多線上賭博資訊線上 骰子

雖然機會率並不幫助玩家,但卻是可將個人的賭博技巧提高,也可把莊家的優勢降至最低。例如說,在玩單副牌的二十一點,玩家每下注200元,一小時平均才輸掉10元,一般每小時等於玩 100 次計算。 如果玩家在賭場的限定時間內進行博弈,還可能得到免費住房和餐飲服務,我想這些都超過了在賭桌上輸的錢。並想到這些好處,當然要去賭場了。另一方面賭場怎能擔負得起這些開支的呢?很簡單,因為大多數賭客玩法都是不對的。如果你肯多花時間,研究賭術與數學的關係,就可讓那些玩家,為你支付免費住宿和賭博娛樂了。

儘管你有著各種博弈遊戲的最佳策略,但我還要鼓勵你多了解數學理論。畢竟數學與賭博中的機會率還是有相互關係,讓自己多分析各種線上博弈遊戲的機會率,就能更安心和更自信享受在其中。
