What is supervision and why do we need it?
Supervision is a process in which one therapist is given responsibility to work with other therapists in order to meet certain organisational, professional and personal objectives. These objectives are competent, accountable performance, continual professional development and personal support.
Supervision enables therapists to discuss client issues and therapy whilst maintaining the client’s confidentiality. It allows the therapist to discuss/process their feelings, thoughts and get a second opinion and advice about the course of therapy they are giving. It ensures that they are staying within organisational guidelines and are following their code of ethics.
To develop confidence utilizing hypnotherapeutic techniques, managing client sessions and maintaining an empathic professional role.
To explore how to get started in practice and to help identify a personal style of hypnotherapeutic work.
Adrian Sonnex was my supervisor during my studies at the Institute of Clinical Hypnosis (ICH), and he has been continuing in this role since I graduated. I found Adrian to be very professional and at the same time down to earth and humorous. He helped to keep me focused and motivated as a student and… his years of experience proving equally usefull as I embarked on my professional career. Joel Cantor DCH.

Adrian has been my supervisor throughout my diploma training last year, initally meeting him face to face and now via Skype due to my location. I would recommend him to any other trainee or qualified therapist.(Five Stars*
After having seen Adrian a couple of years ago for a bout of deep depression and reflecting on how much my life improved from the moment I started to see him I was inspired to become a hypnotherapist myself, in the hope that I could have even a fragment of the impact Adrian had on… my life on other people’s lives. As a result of his professionalism, experience and empathy I chose Adrian to also become my supervisor. His depth of knowledge, client care, holistic experience and success with all aspects of being a self-employed hypnotherapist have made him a phenomenal supervisor. He has added so much value and given me invaluable tips both for working with clients and starting my own practice. I am very grateful to have him as a supervisor. * Read more “Lina Gonzalez, Hypnotherapy Supervision”
“Many professional organisations require therapists to be “supervised” and it is also good business practice. Adrian has been my supervisor for several years and I am very happy with him as my supervisor. He is professional, friendly, and knowledgeable in so many areas-he gives great marketing tips too! He is always punctual and flexible if… need be. Adrian also does Supervision both face to face and via Skype. I find the Skype particularly useful as it not only saves massively on the travel expenses but gives me invaluable practice at Skyping, which I detest and am working on my acceptance of technology.” (Five Stars) Read more “Freda Minton, Hypnotherapy Supervision”
