Solution Focused Hypnotherapy Supervision
In December 2010, I qualified as a Solution Focused Supervisor for Hypnotherapists. This skill enables me to pass on my experience and further promote the hypnotherapy profession.
Solution-focused clinical supervision, offers a simple yet profound philosophy and structure for the supervisory relationship. The aim of incorporating solution-focused techniques into clinical supervision is to enhance the range of options which I can use to help you move forward positively.
As the name suggests, 'solution focus' is about looking for solutions rather than dwelling on problems (Iveson, 2002). At the heart of solution-focused work is what Waskett (2006) calls 'spacious simplicity' - a simplicity that comes from a basic attitude of mutual respect; combined with the intention of moving forward positively (Fowler, 2005). There are a number of ideas and techniques used within solution-based therapies that are applicable in the supervisory relationship. These include (George et al, 1999):
- The use of scales
- Focused questions
- Looking for exceptions
- Constructive feedback
- Follow-up tasks
These techniques assist me to engage collaboratively with you, encouraging reflection on practice and a focus on solutions. Our relationship is based on mutual respect and equality that encourages openness and honesty and an opportunity to reflect on work-related issues in a safe and non-judgmental environment. I am able to facilitate supervision sessions as follows:
Group supervision costs £35 per person, per session, maximum 3 hours. This is paid monthly at £17.50 a month through standing order, and entitles you to attend six group sessions a year. Sessions are held Bi monthly at an agreed venue or on line. You will also have access to telephone support in bewteen sessions. This model meets the expectations of most regulatory and membership organisations. Dates are set as follows:
|Sunday 26th April 2020||10am|
|Sunday 24th May 2020||10am|
|Sunday 26th July 2020||10am|
|Sunday 27th September 2020||10am|

If you prefer, I can offer one-to-one supervision, face to face or on line, at a cost of £60 per hour.
All supervision methods include an on call service, Thursday evenings 6pm - 9pm via phone, at no additional cost.
