Supervision details

Types of supervision  I offer hypnosis and hypnotherapy supervision via phone, zoom/skype and in person for practitioners, students and researchers who are using hypnosis or hypnotherapy within their research studies. In addition, I run a popular online supervision group, which meets monthly throughout the year. Style of supervision  I am a supportive supervisor, focused on helping you to develop in the way that is most appropriate for your needs, whether that is discussing future, current or past cases, past/future training, professional development, the personal impact of therapy, or aspects relating to business management and development. Qualified and approved I am a qualified hypnotherapy supervisor and approved by both the BSCH (of which I am Chair) and the GHR (advanced senior status). I am also a qualified research supervisor (SEDA). Hypnotherapy knowledge and experience  My doctorate explored hypnotherapy teaching and learning from a professionalism perspective. I was fortunate to be able to attend a vast range of hypnotherapy and related courses. As such, I have extensive knowledge and experience of a diverse range of approaches and methodologies which I have found invaluable whilst working with clients in private practice, as well as in-patients/out-patients at a London teaching hospital. Trainer and lecturer  I am co-founder and tutor of one of the UK’s leading hypnotherapy training providers (HypnoTC and Hypnosis-Courses.com) and teach/supervise on the MSc. Clinical Hypnotherapy programme at the University of West London. I also present at both national and international conferences, both on hypnotherapy topics and on the use of language and communication skills.  Professional activities  I am chair of the British Society of Clinical Hypnosis (BSCH) and lead the Profession Specific Board (PSB) representing hypnotherapy with the Complementary and Natural Healthcare Council (CNHC) who have regulatory role for complementary therapies.

British Society of Clinical Hypnosis (BSCH)

The British Society of Clinical Hypnosis (BSCH) is a national professional body whose aim is to promote and assure high standards in the practice of hypnotherapy.

There are various types of membership of BSCH, including associate members, full members, diplomats and fellows.

Registration demands good quality training, ethical practice and adherence to a code of conduct.

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.

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.

Key details

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.
