Group Supervision and Development

Why Supervision?

Group supervision is a collaborative experience, which can be positive and motivating, helping you to expand your professional capacities. It can be a great opportunity to broaden your circle of ‘work colleagues’ (which, as a hypnotherapist, is often just yourself)… It also gives you an opportunity to talk to others about your experiences and get the benefit of their learning and practice too.

It can help you explore what and why you did what you did, the underlying theory, the real-world practice and alternative approaches as well as ethical dilemmas. It really is a great way of keeping professionally-healthy yourself, as well as getting a deeper understanding of how to react and respond to your clients, what works and doesn’t work for you and how you can develop and expand both your practice and your business. As most hypnotherapists are also business owners, group supervision can include discussing all things business, including marketing and self-promotion and what aspects of CPD has worked well for others.

Benefits and advantages of group supervision:

  • A diversity of opinion and breadth of feedback
  • Increased sense of support from others who have similar concerns
  • Growth of understanding from challenges others are experiencing
  • Reduces professional isolation
  • Increased self-awareness and confidence in ability to act in practice

What Is Supervision?

Group supervision is:

  • Focused on professional growth, development and practice improvement, in the context of professional practice
  • A reflection on work, with opportunities to present cases (anonymised) and discuss them
  • Pooling of skills and knowledge to improve individual and group capabilities
  • A safe environment to discuss problems and limitations without criticism

Group supervision is not:

  • Monitoring work performance
  • A cheaper alternative to individual supervision
  • A form of personal therapy
