Supervision sessions for therapists
If you are a qualified therapist with less than 3 years (or 300 hours) of clinical experience, supervision is essential. Supervision sessions with me will help you to develop your professional skills and your practice so that you can offer the best service to your clients. My supervision sessions will provide you with a safe and confidential space to discuss challenging or distressing client cases and to seek advice where required.
Through supervision, I aim to support both your safety and emotional wellbeing and that of your clients. In our sessions, I will encourage you to reflect on cases and discuss your challenges, ideas, and therapy options for your clients. I will give guidance or suggestions only if you are unsure how to help a client or if there is a safeguarding concern. The identity of your clients will remain totally confidential and only you will know their name or contact information.
I believe that supervision is invaluable whether you are new to the profession or an experienced therapist, so I do my best to make sessions affordable and accessible. I am a certified National Council for Hypnotherapy (NCH) solution-focused clinical supervisor and I offer monthly group supervision and 1-2-1 sessions via Zoom. Group sessions are held on the first Friday of every month and cost £35 per person. 1-2-1 sessions can be arranged at a mutually convenient time and the fee will vary slightly depending on the duration and frequency.
In addition to client casework discussions, recent topics brought by therapists to the group supervision sessions have included clinical note-taking, record-keeping rules, how to switch to online hypnotherapy sessions, how to structure therapy courses, if or how to follow up with clients, safe working practices during the pandemic, maintaining boundaries and the correct protocol to follow with suicidal or vulnerable clients.
Practice development themes brought for discussion by supervisees have included what to charge clients, building your own website v finding a developer, social media platforms, the pros and cons of websites v Facebook, having a niche v being a generalist therapist, ways to build your business if you don't like social media, NCH membership levels, and completing the NCH Hypnotherapy in Practice Diploma (HPD).
If you'd like to have a no-obligation chat about supervision book a call so that I can get an idea of your supervision needs, explain how my individual or group sessions work, and for us both to see if we are a good fit. I'd love to hear from you!
