Supervision details

Supervision is an important vehicle by which most therapists manage to reflect on their practice, and allow it to develop. This should be the primary motivation in any Supervision arrangement.  We are all reflecting all of the time, but the reflective experience is enriched by using an experienced, qualified colleague, who's objective is to enable you to bring the best out of yourself. Practically speaking, professional bodies are now requiring evidence of supervision, and are auditing members at renewal time. Alan himself was audited by the CNHC a couple of years ago. The National Council for Hypnotherapy (NCH) require a quarterly  supervisory contact and this is consistent with the Complementary and Natural Healthcare Council (CNHC).  Even liability insurers are looking for evidence of Supervision, and where they are not, in the event of a complaint, it certainly won't hurt your defence to provide a positive Supervisors report. Give Alan a ring and have a chat.... if he doesn't cause you to run for the hills then arrange a first supervision session, which will be free of charge, either in person or by phone, for around 30-60 minutes, according to need. If you decide to continue, then you will need to arrange a Standing Order to Alan for £25 a month. This will entitle you to one session per month, plus additional access in urgent situations, subject to reasonable use.  This entitlement is well in excess of minimum requirements for most professional bodies (see opposite/below), and you will determine the extent to which you use the arrangement, not only according to how confident you are feeling within your practice, but also with an eye to those requirements

Complementary and Natural Healthcare Council (CNHC)

The CNHC encompasses many types of alternative therapy, including hypnotherapy.

In order to be admitted to the register a practitioner must have studied to the National Occupational Standards for that profession/discipline, or have reached the equivalent of the National Occupational Standards through other relevant training or at least three years of experience and been assessed by their peers.

A practitioner must also have professional insurance and agree to abide by the CNHC Code of Conduct, Performance and Ethics.

National Council for Hypnotherapy (NCH)

The National Council for Hypnotherapy holds one of the largest registers of independent Hypnotherapists in the United Kingdom and strives to maintain the highest standards among its members.

There is an agreed Code of Conduct, an established Complaints & Disciplinary Procedure and all members are obliged to maintain comprehensive Public Liability & Professional Indemnity Insurance, maintain regular CPD (continuing professional development) hours, and attend Supervision when needed.

Wheelchair user access
Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a Hypnotherapist's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the Hypnotherapist to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
