what stood out to me from you question was that:
a) nobody is hiring in your area
b) how to get someone to trust me?
I think everyone gave you fantastic answers and joining interest groups, i.e. church groups, school groups etc, in your area maybe a very good way to go.
Offer some free sessions to establish trust in your expertise.
See what the clubs around you do to find clients.
Network with everyone and anyone has helped me to be where I am right now. AND most importantly list your service with IDEA.
Good luck, keep us posted on how things go.
