Therapy supervision in Leeds, West Yorkshire and throughout the UK via Skype and telephone
BA (Hons) D.Hyp Dip.Thyp PNLP MHS (Accred)
Supervision is an integral part of providing safe and effective hypnotherapy. Whether you’re currently in training, have recently qualified or are an experienced Hypnotherapist who is seeking supervision, I may be able to help.
Supervision enables a Hypnotherapist to review and reflect on their work and is considered to be vital in safe, ethical and professional practice. In the early stages of a therapist’s career, supervision can be an important source of support and advice in emergencies or with clients whose presenting issues are difficult or complex. For experienced therapists, supervision can be a valuable ‘checking in’ process, providing a fresh perspective, helping therapists to stay grounded, maintain professional and personal boundaries and avoid burnout.
One to One, Telephone and Skype Sessions
As an approved Supervisor for The National Hypnotherapy Society, I work within the society’s supervision guidelines, however I may be able to provide supervision if you belong to another professional organisation. One to one sessions are held at one of my offices in Leeds and telephone and Skype supervision is available for therapists throughout the UK.
Whether you prefer supervision in person, via telephone or Skype, I believe in creating a non-judgmental and open relationship which is based on trust and mutual respect. This allows you to identify your own strengths and any areas that may need developing, whilst continuing to practice in a safe, ethical and professional manner. I offer an informal and relaxed, yet constructive approach to supervision, so that you can feel at ease and get the most from your supervision sessions.
Originally from a background in the advertising and design industry, I have worked with several design, marketing and advertising agencies throughout the Yorkshire region and have a wealth of both off and online marketing knowledge to draw upon, in order to help you further develop and promote your hypnotherapy practice.
Supervision sessions can cover a variety of areas including:
- Client issues
- Practice development and marketing
- Continuing Professional Development (CPD)
- Learning new skills and techniques
- Therapy strategies for specific issues
- Issues that may be affecting your practice
I also keep an accurate log of the time spent in supervision and provide a written summary following each session. I can also provide an annual written report for your professional organisation if required (additional fee applies).
As a Hypnotherapist, the amount of supervision you are required to engage in varies depending on which professional organisation you are registered with. The following is a guide (as of April 2018):
The National Hypnotherapy Society (HS)
1.5 hours every month for therapists in full time practice.
General Hypnotherapy Register (GHR)
Minimum of 2 hours in any 3 month period during the first 2 years of practice (voluntary thereafter).
The National Council for Hypnotherapy (NCH)
Minimum of 30 minutes per month or average of 6 hours per year during first 3 years of practice (voluntary thereafter).
Your level of experience and the client group you are working with will also determine how much supervision you need. We will agree mutually convenient dates and times to suit you and your professional organisation’s requirements. For supervision sessions to be meaningful and effective, it is recommended that sessions are a minimum of 60 minutes.
£60 per 60 minute session
£30 per 60 minute session
Payment is made by electronic bank transfer or standing order at the beginning of each month, prior to each supervision session.
