At the moment I am rebranding my hypnosis show and the direction I have decided to go is the psychic one - I am now calling myself the Psychic Hypnotist.
If people on this forum are any guide, I think I may be onto something.


Yes, this is what I was referring to above.....relabeling so that it is specific to just you, not a group of labeled people. Something to set yourself apart. Although you used two of the label words together.....it would still be better.

I don't think laymen split hairs on "mentalist / psychic" nearly as much as magicians do.

I am going to assume (and I may be way wrong, so pelase forgive me) that you are interested in earning a living -- that "popularity" to you is not only about inflating your ego and increasing your fame, but also about paying the mortgage and keeping the kiddies in shoes.

Magicians certainly get the most fame, and the best ones have wealth-generating work coming out of their ears, but many of the magicians I know work only part time and hold down a "straight job" on the side. This is not the case with the Psychics I know. Most of them either can or do work full time as Psychic Entertainers.

It likely depends on the forum.

For the most part, the non-magicians I've talked to lump 'psychic' and 'mentalist' together and usually give the opinion of either, "It's all real," or, "It's all fake."

Your results may vary.
