Since qualifying, I have had regular supervision, and it has enabled me to learn, to build confidence and to overcome the isolation you quite often feel when you go from working in an office environment to working on one’s own in a clinic
Now as part of the government’s regulations on complementary health, the associations are being more vigorous on supervision and to be able to upgrade your status from registered to accredited for example you have to have a set number of hours.
It can be by emails, over the telephone and over Skype or Zoom. Group is helpful if you’re feeling isolated. But if you really want to get to the heart of a problem one to one is an advantage.
Solution-Focused Supervision (SFS) is about collaborating with and helping develop a supervisee’s talents, so it’s a model that can work well with other modalities.
- Supervisee strengths
- Constructive feedback
- Goal setting
I will also use each session to update supervisees on changes to our knowledge base, updates in understanding and techniques, and because of my background in marketing and advertising, I shall also be talking about how to market your business.
I also accept email questions and log these and invoice as soon as I reach an hour.
I come from an advertising and marketing background and have run my own design company before now. For months where you may not need supervision for clients, you can benefit from hour long mentoring for hypnotherapists. This includes:
- The best way to develop your marketing.
- Blogs and subjects to choose
- Career development and choosing the right CPD
- Places to advertise
- How to develop talks and workshops
- Your online presence
Telephone or skype – £35/hour
If you have any queries you can call anytime and leave a message, or email with “supervision” or “mentoring”as the subject line, or text “supervision” with a landline number.
