What is supervision and who needs it?
For those of us who work in the profession of talking therapy, clinical supervision is essential. For new or experienced therapists (less than 3 years/300 hundred hours) it is essential. Supervision offers a confidential, safe service for therapists where they can debrief and discuss difficult or upsetting cases with a qualified supervisor who will have greater professional experience than they currently have.
The role of the supervisor is to support the safety and emotional wellbeing of both the therapist and their clients. The identity of clients will remain confidential, known only to the therapist with whom they are working. The most important effect of this process is helping each therapist to develop their therapeutic skills for the benefit and safety of their clients as well as their own self-growth.
As a National Council for Hypnotherapy solution-focused supervisor, I encourage all my supervisees to reflect on cases and discuss their ideas, possible techniques, and therapy options for their clients. I will of course make suggestions or give guidance if one of my supervisees is unsure how to help a client or has a safeguarding concern.
Supervision sessions can be conducted 1-2-1 or in groups; face to face or online using Zoom. I offer monthly group supervision sessions and 1-2-1 sessions by arrangement.
