I am an Accredited Clinical Supervisor for Hypnotherapists, I work and live in Cardiff.

I am offering clinical supervision through facilitating peer supervision.  Supervision is of course inclusive of all the latest research, interventions, techniques and metaphors as well as the most up to date aspects of SFBT, CBT, NLP, Mindfulness and marketing your business.

As a practising clinical hypnotherapist you are required as part of the relevant organisations you belong to (NCH, APHP, NCP, AfSFH, GHR etc as detailed in their recommended codes of practice) to have supervision sessions.  It is up to you to ensure that you meet the requirements of the relevant associations you are a member of. Most require 6 sessions per year and this can include some sessions of phone supervision as well as face to face.

Supervision is essential to allow you to advance, for example from licentiate to registered practitioner and it allows others to meet, preventing isolation and burnout and allowing you to develop and flourish as a practitioner.

The benefits of group supervision sessions are that they give opportunity to share ideas and learn from peers. Group sessions provide a chance to discuss relevant topics in a caring and supportive environment. This includes:

  • Case studies and best practice
  • Latest research and developments in neuroscience
  • Recently published books
  • Continual professional development courses
  • Marketing and business management

I have been having regular supervision sessions with Jess Dowd for over four years. Jess' Solution Focused approach to supervision is both uplifting and encouraging and I come away from sessions with renewed enthusiasm and energy.

As a practitioner my main aim is to support the clients I work with in the best and most effective way possible. At the core of my practise is the clients well being and their therapy goals. Supervision with Jess enables me to reflect on the work I do with clients and to tune and refine my practise in a way that maintains these core values. With Jess's extensive experience as a practitioner and supervisor, she is able to support me and provide a space to develop skills and a deeper understanding about the approaches I use in my practise. Supervision helps me to maintain my professionalism and fulfil my responsibilities as a therapist at all times.  JW

Supervision is the safety net we all need. Regular meetings to touch base, share ideas and learn from colleagues keeps therapists abreast with developments and in touch with a wider community. It has been an invaluable resource and fabulous confidence boost in what could otherwise be a rather lonely working environment. 

Having an experienced helpful advisor at the end of the telephone has been a huge support to me in my first few years of practice, and I'm sure will continue to be used. Whenever there is a difficult situation Jess is always on hand with useful, accessible advice.  AP

I've found supervision really helpful for when I use hypnotherapy with students. It's always interesting, as I learn a lot useful information from "fried eggs of control" to the latest research from neuroscience and recommendations for books I hadn't heard of. I'm also very grateful that there's someone to turn to for ideas to try when I'm stuck. I really appreciate the work you put in, updating us about new developments in the field and also creating a lively and supportive group for sharing experience. I look forward to coming because it's an enjoyable three hours which goes quickly. JN

A regular supervision session is a bit like an oasis. It's perfectly possible to keep on walking with your camel and your backpack - you know the route, and feel good about the journey......but all of a sudden you come to this wonderful sparkling pool of clarity. It's good to drink deep and refresh yourself - supervision for me is about that time to pause and re-energise.

It's a great opportunity to look at things with a fresh set of eyes, and think about new approaches which can really boost the breadth and depth of your practice. I also like the opportunity to learn, to glean articles and books which I may never have come across - that sharing is so good. And, of course - time to feel supported, and that you are not alone; when you are working in your own practice, this is hugely important. Thank you Jess for all of the above!
