Believe & Achieve Hypnotherapy Supervision Agreement

Terms & Conditions for Hypnotherapy Supervision
The aim of this Supervision Contract is to explain the points and purpose of supervision. This contract clarifies the expectations, supervisory relationship and responsibilities of both the supervisor and the supervisee. Supervision is a forum where supervisees review and reflect on their work in order to improve. These confidential discussions can happen in groups or individually, on zoom video (or over the telephone). It is a working relationship which requires regular contact between Supervisor and Supervisee with the aim to maximise the growth and development of the Supervisee, to ensure they are able to offer the highest levels of competence in working with their clients.

Frequency of Supervision:
Times and dates to be arranged. The Association for Solution Focused Hypnotherapy stipulate that all members need to attend a minimum of six supervision hours per year (other associations may vary so please check their requirements). This can be achieved in the following ways:
  • Six online group supervision sessions
  • Six online one to one telephone/zoom sessions (Each session 1 hour in total unless arranged otherwise)
  • A mixture of the above
  • A mixture of Ad hoc sessions with different supervisors (note: you may need one designated one to meet some requirements)

In exceptional cases please call me on 07793812473 leaving a message if I do not answer, I will respond as promptly as I can.

Monthly payments will be by Standing Order. Payment for Ad Hoc sessions can be made 48 hours prior to session by bank transfer, invoices will only be sent if requested.

Notice of Cancellation needs to occur at least 24 hours before the session otherwise the full session fee will apply.

Supervisees are expected to spend time before each session considering exactly what it is they would like to achieve from the session and anything they may need help with. It is their responsibility to ensure these aims are met during the time available by letting the Supervisor know what they are, the day before so she can prepare.

Code of Ethics and Confidentiality:
Ethical considerations with confidentiality are assured during supervision from both the Supervisor and the Supervisee.  However, there may be circumstances when confidentiality may be overridden if there are grounds to believe the safety of the client or of those surrounding the client are at risk.

This is a professional relationship governed by confidentiality and supervisees will not be named in these conversations; every effort will be made to maintain their confidentiality.

Legal Responsibilities:
Supervisor and Supervisee have legal liabilities to each other, to any employing organisation and above all, to their clients. This includes my taking action, if I have serious concerns about a supervisee’s practice, especially where client safety is concerned as outlined above.
