Hypnotherapy Supervision

Hypnotherapy Supervision

Hello, and welcome to my site. After all my years in practice, I still have hypnotherapy supervision and attend hypnotherapy supervision days, because being a hypnotherapist can be an isolating career. I love my job, as I feel I have the best job in the world, helping people to unleash their potentials for successful outcomes in life, however I still need that external contact with others in the same shoes as myself. The benefits of hypnotherapy supervision to me ultimately brings positive effects for my clients, my students, my practice and above all my business.

Why is Hypnotherapy Supervision important?

Hypnotherapy Supervision is key to you the therapist to know what works best for you and your clients, and it helps you to discover how you can be highly effective, creative and flexible when working with your clients.

Supervision encourages you the therapist to focus on your own knowledge, strengths and abilities, helping you to work and be highly effective.

Supervision ensures that your clients encounter continual client improvement and care, from you through your on-going professional development.

How can I as your Hypnotherapy Supervisor help you with your practice?

  • Support you in working with clients and help you build a successful and safe hypnotherapy practice for you and your clients.
  • Help you to identify your own strengths and weaknesses, thereby building on your strengths and strengthening your weaknesses.
  • Help you to develop an ethical and legal practice in a professional manner through your on-going professional development.

My aims as a supervisor are:

For you to work on enhancing your strengths, and build and weaknesses into strengths, enabling you to be the best you can be.

To ensure that when we work together we continuously work on your clients’ needs to bring successful outcomes for them and you.

To help you to build and develop a successful hypnotherapy practice Also that you can do that in a safe and ethical way.

I will support you to meet your own individual goals through reflective practice, reflecting on what you are doing well, whilst recognising areas that require positive changes.

As your supervisor, I will help you to build a reputation in your field that is built on Honesty, Truth and Trust, bringing you many successes in your practice.

As your supervisor, I can offer you advice on how to successfully market yourself as a hypnotherapist, through marketing strategies that have worked for me and can work for you, through effective social media and various other ways.

Supervision Requirements

Hypnotherapy Supervision is a condition of most hypnotherapy professional governing bodies, including those of the Annette Brown School of Hypnotherapy, that new therapists undertake supervision. The G.H.R. members are required to engage in this valuable development for 8 hours in a year after qualification. I would highly encourage you to continue this practice after that time.

One to One Hypnotherapy Supervision

Supervision can be delivered by Phone, Skype, FaceTime or in person. My approach is flexible, of which is personalised to the needs of the supervisee. In my experience, one-to-one Supervision is all about YOU the supervisee, it’s about the session being focused purely on whatever your needs or requirements are at the time.

To book you supervision please call Annette Brown on 01253 969695 and I’ll be happy to help where I can.

A Small Selection of Supervision Feedback

Sharon Bowie

What did you think of the concept of the wheel?

The wheel was easy to use (after the initial question which took some thought). It was great to think about our own personal development and look at areas of our lives that need some tweaking. The wheel makes perfect sense and is another tool that we can use. It makes an easy visual overview of how clients see themselves and highlights the areas that need attention. I think it’s amazing and know that I will use it again.

Do you think you will use the technique with your clients or at least part of it?

Definitely. The potential to use the wheel at the initial consultation with a client is huge. To be honest it could also be used at the end of seeing long standing clients to see if the scores have altered and improved.

Which parts of the wheel did you find the most interesting?

I like the fact that it covers all aspects of life.  It also allows the hypnotherapist to gather information quickly and easily whilst highlighting major issues and minor issues.  It’s a clever tool!

 (You could also add health to the wheel…I know we can’t diagnose problems but would perhaps allow us to see if someone is in pain, feeling unfit, feel like they are carrying extra weight etc. This is not a criticism…just an observation)

What did you think about group supervision?

I loved that nobody took control! Everyone felt able to add her opinion to the mix without fear of being mocked. It also has prepared me for the fact that not everybody will have a quick fix of hypnotherapy! It proved that some people are incredibly complex and complicated and that more than one issues can be present. It was great to hear how different people would tackle the same problem using different methods/ideas.

Did the supervision help you?

 It was lovely to meet other people who are further on in their hypnotherapist journey. It was a taster of what lies ahead. I loved that the people present instantly had a common bond. Annette…you have attracted some lovely people to you…is that the law of attraction in operation?!

 If so, how?

It was proof that you don’t take on a complex client unless you know you can deal with them competently.

What did you think of the concept of the wheel?

The wheel is great and really helps you to hone in on different areas and identify priority areas.

Do you think you will use the technique with your clients or at least part of it?

Yes, I will definitely use this, especially when the client finds it difficult to put their issues into words.

Which parts of the wheel did you find the most interesting?

I found the self-perception part very interesting. It was fascinating to see how self-perception can differ dramatically from how others see you.

What did you think about group supervision?

I loved the group supervision. It was invaluable to share support and ideas with the group.

Did the supervision help you?

It helped me enormously. It is easy to get caught up in self-doubt.

Alison Wakeford

What did you think of the concept of the wheel?

I think the concept of the wheel is a very good tool for getting to know your clients world a little better

Do you think you will use the technique with your clients or at least part of it?

Defiantly will use the wheel with clients

Which parts of the wheel did you find the most interesting?

All of it, as one part can affect all of it if the client is having difficulties in just one area of the wheel.

What did you think about group supervision?

I love supervision i think so much can be learnt from peer’s experiences

Did the supervision help you?

Yes

If so, how?

Listening to others case studies help if i ever feel i have a client with similar stories\situations
