About supervision

Hypnotherapy supervision is a confidential working relationship where we explore hypnotherapy practice. In a supportive environment, I can help you with client work, ‘stuck clients’, ethical issues, continuing professional development, choosing the best interventions, practice management issues, marketing, and more.

Karen provides individual and group online hypnotherapy supervision.

Bill Noon, HypnotherapistAfter training and setting up my own practice I was fortunate enough to attend supervision sessions with Karen. The sessions provided a real opportunity to evaluate my own performance and issues with someone who understands the everyday work of a hypnotherapist. — Bill Noon, Hypnotherapist

Deborah Hill, HypnotherapistOnce trained, Paul and Karen offered new trainees Clinical Supervision which I found invaluable. They were fully aware of issues newly trained Hypnotherapists were likely to encounter.
