Supervision details

At a Discerning Life I believe you want to be a practice owner that has

  • successful clients
  • a thriving therapist at its heart
  • and a solid, stable practice

and in order to do that, you need a practice you feel good about, creating your sweet spot in these three areas.

The problem is that running a practice can give you more downs than ups. I believe that with the right support and guidance you can learn to handle your practice’s downs skilfully and fully enjoy its ups.

I understand how it can feel to struggle in a practice that is not thriving, that’s why I help therapists create a practice they feel good about in a professional, supportive and empathetic space.

To create your sweet spot we focus on the three key areas

  1. Client facing issues
  2. Therapist wellbeing and support
  3. Practice growth and sustainability

So contact me at a Discerning Life today to organise a free initial chat and receive your pdf ‘Find your Practice’s Sweet Spot with Supervision’ so you stop feeling alone and stuck in your practice and start feeling confident, supported and on track for success.

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.

The General Hypnotherapy Register (GHR)

Hypnotherapists may become members of the General Hypnotherapy Register if they satisfy certain criteria with regard to both training and ongoing requirements as determined from time to time by the General Hypnotherapy Standards Council (GHSC).

Members are either registered at Practitioner status (which confirms that the GHR acknowledges their qualification to practice), or Affiliate status. Although Affiliate level registrants will have completed a sufficient number of training hours to equip them to commence seeing clients on a limited basis, the GHR does not acknowledge them to have yet been trained to full practitioner level.

All GHR Registered Practitioners are required to accept the published Code of Ethics and Complaints & Disciplinary Procedure.
