Supervision

When I work with my supervisor I feel supported and nourished with ideas and strategies to help my clients. We explore counselling and hypnotherapy techniques as well as ideas and techniques to get the most out of my session work. I feel I can develop and grow my skills base and learn from my supervisor. I love using story and analogy, metaphor and imagery in deeper work to help my clients understand themselves and how they can change. I don’t feel judged or criticised by my supervisor but feel I can be challenged to meet the needs of my clients who are the heart of supervision.

I offer personalised supervision for counsellors and hypnotherapists in practice.

My practice is based on a reflective approach to build on your current skills and knowledge in order to meet the needs of your own clients. My approaches are pluralistic (person-centred, CBT and psychodynamic) with specialist interest in depth psychology and the biopsychosocial model. My hypnotherapy work is based on story, imagination, imagery, metaphor, analogy, deep suggestion and solution-focused brief interventions.

I have worked with a range of issues including trauma recovery, depression, anxiety, stress, relationships, spiritual issues, sexuality, gender, addictions, phobias, compulsive behaviours and anger to name just a few.

My supervisory skills and approach is informed from my own current practice as a tutor on Level 3-5 Diplomas at Chrysalis Courses where I am a marker for their case studies as well. My research diploma has also helped me develop deeper reflective practices in meeting the needs of complex clients in counselling and hypnotherapy. I also draw on my coaching and mentoring roles in education over the past 25 years personalising development, reflection and CPD for practitioners.

My focus is on helping counsellors and hypnotherapists develop their own skills of analysis and reflection as well as building their skills and tools with ideas, strategies and approaches from my own practice and toolbox.
