The Appendix describes different models of Supervision, and comments on issues that may be relevant to particular models.
B 1. The Nature of Supervision
functions concerned with monitoring, developing, and supporting individuals in their therapy role. [This process is sometimes known as ‘non-managerial supervision or ‘consultative support’.]
However, the skills associated with these activities are central to competent supervision.
B.2. Issues of Responsibility
needs of the client:
that both parties are able to work together effectively.
between working relationships and friendships or other relationships, and making explicit the boundaries between supervision, consultancy, therapy and training.
They would not normally expect to mix the two. On the rare occasions when the supervisor might engage in therapy with the therapist, a clear contract must be negotiated, and any therapy done must not be at the expense of supervision time.

times when their personal resources are so depleted that they will need to seek help and/or withdraw from the practice of supervision, whether temporarily or permanently.
This Code of Practice is intended to give more specific information and guidance regarding the implementation of the principles embodied in the Code of Ethics for the Supervision of Therapists.
In order to establish an effective supervision contract, the following points should be considered:
regard to the length of contact time, the frequency of contact time and the privacy of the venue.
each other, and each party should assess the value of working with each other.

person or through any public medium unless:
a] it is clearly stated in the supervision contract that this is acceptable to both parties, or
b] when the supervisor considers it is necessary to prevent serious emotional or physical
damage to the client or another party. When the initial contract is being made, agreement about the people to whom a supervisor may speak must include the people on whom a supervisor relies for support, supervision or consultancy. There must also be clarity at this stage about the boundaries of confidentiality regarding people [other than the therapist] to whom the supervisor may be accountable.
when relevant to the following:
a] recommendations concerning therapists for professional purposes.
b] pursuit of disciplinary action involving therapists in matters pertaining to ethical standards.
This involves a single supervisor providing supervision for one other therapist, who is usually less experienced than themselves in therapy. This is still the most widely used method of supervision. Its long history means that most of the issues requiring the supervisor’s and therapist’s consideration are well understood, and these are included in the Code of Practice above.
This involves two participants providing supervision for each other by alternating the roles of supervisor and therapist. Typically, the time available for a supervision session is divided equally between them.
There is a range of ways of providing this form of supervision. At one end of the spectrum the supervisor, acting as leader, will take responsibility for apportioning the time between the therapists, and then concentrating on the work of individuals in turn. At the other end of the range, the therapists will allocate supervision time between themselves, using the supervisor as a technical resource. There are many different ways of working between these two alternatives.

I have utilised hypnosis since 1989 for the treatment of a variety of psychological and emotional issues such as:

I am recognised by BUPA, AVIVA, PruHealth, and WPA for psychotherapeutic referrals.
If you want to ensure that I am the right therapist for you, please either email me at email@example.com or call me on 0161 881 1677 and I am more than happy to answer any questions you may have. I offer a no obligation consultation giving you the chance to determine whether I am the right therapist for you. You may also find that reading my code of ethics, practice agreement, my about me page, and/or my CV page will help to give you a better idea of what to expect if you consult me.
I see clients online (remotely) or in my comfortable and discrete Victorian Consulting Rooms in Whalley Range, Greater Manchester. 3 Miles from the City Centre of Manchester (easy access from Chorlton, Stretford, Didsbury, Sale, Altrincham, Withington, Stockport, Knutsford, Salford Quays and Cheshire). There is free off street parking. Mine is the longest established Hypnotherapy Practice in South Manchester. I also provide sessions via Zoom, SKYPE WhatsApp or FaceTime if you cannot attend sessions at my practice.
Unlike most hypnotherapists, I am also an accredited Psychotherapist for over 25 years with the UK Council for Psychotherapy. The skills I acquired as a psychotherapist assists the hypnotherapeutic process considerably and helps my clients gain new insights into the potential causes of their issues. This is still done in a brief, solution focused manner.
In recognition of the distinguished contribution Shaun has made to the field of psychotherapy, the Board of Trustees of the UK Council for Psychotherapy awarded him an Honorary Fellowship of UKCP in November 2018. Shaun is one of only two Hypno-Psychotherapists to have received this honour from UKCP.
Since 2001 I have been providing supervision for hypnotherapists in Manchester as well as throughout the UK. Sessions can be face to face, one to one, groups or on Zoom, WhatsApp, SKYPE or FaceTime. I provide supervision in accordance with the requirements for practitioner registered with UKCP, NSTT, NCH, as well as other professional bodies for hypnotherapy and psychotherapy.
I have recently completed a specialist certification programme in Clinical Traumatology in order to assist my clients with PTSD more effectively. Trauma work requires specialist training beyond a practitioner's initial training.
I have presented courses, seminars, after dinner speeches and workshops in the UK, Europe, USA, Australia and the Far East on various aspects of hypnosis and psychotherapy. To date, I have presented over 50 programmes at international hypnotherapy and psychotherapy conferences around the world. If you want a dynamic and entertaining after dinner speaker, get in touch.
