Nothing personal here, I don't know your intent.
But you are putting out some very false information, that could be very dangerous for people.
As noted in this thread already, the Byron Katie Hotline has NOTHING to do with Byron Katie. Its just some random people up there. NONE OF THEIR DETAILS ARE CHECKED. Anyone can set a profile up.
READ THE DISCLAIMERS.
You are giving out false informmation about the Byron Katie phone Hotline.
That does NOT apply to registered psychologists and psychiatrists. They are REGISTERED and you can check that out quite easily.
So why are you putting out false information about the Byron Katie hotline?
Is that intentional or not?
As far as criminals, there was an actual murder committed by one of them, and the article was removed from the Google index! Who did that? Byron Katie's company? (of course, they were trying to ban this article).
Murder suspect claimed self-help plan helped her,

Those Hotline people are mainly bogus "life coaches" trying to make money, and there would be some outright scam-artists in there as well, looking for people who are desperate and in PAIN. They lure them in. They are trolling for people in pain. Pain = Profits.
As far as Rational-Emotive Therapy (REBT), Byron Katie has absolutely NOTHING at all to do with that. Zero. Nothing. RET-REBT completely is opposed to the garbage put out by Byron Katie.
Byron Katie is not a psychologist, or therapist.
She is a sociopathic manipulator. She makes up stories (lies) for a living.
So it does make one wonder why someone would go out of there way to put out FALSE information about Byron Katie and the Byron Katie fake Hotline scam.
NO ONE SHOULD EVER CALL THAT BOGUS HOTLINE. Its nothing more than a fish-hook, and you are the fish that is going to be lured in and cooked.
Anyone could be on the hotline including criminals? Ok, that applies for any phone number, including those of psychologists and psychiatrists who advertise on the web.
I was never asked for my name or any personal details. I was never asked to bring up any important details of my life. Sometimes I would give ONLY the troubling thought I was working on, with zero context. I was NEVER asked for financial information. Katie doesn't support them? They are all enrolled in her program to become certified facilitators. Even if you think her program is crap, you can't say she doesn't support them.
They include their personal phone numbers, email addresses, web sites and pictures. I give them nothing. Most of them are facilitators in training. Are the ones who are certified looking for clients? Probably -- and yet not a one I talked to suggested I hire them.
As for Katie's philosophy, it is a blend of Rational-Emotive Therapy and Taoism. I'm also reminded vividly of Shambhala Buddism.
