I am practising Clinical Hypnotherapist and a qualified level 5 Hypnotherapy Supervisor registered with the NCH.
Based in Stretford, Greater Manchester I also connect with other therapists across the country via telephone, Zoom and Skype.
‘Ben continually seeks to enhance his own knowledge and skills, which he generously shares with me, to the benefit of both myself and my clients. At the end of every supervision session with Ben I feel fortified, enthused and confident in my practice as a hypnotherapist. I would thoroughly recommend Ben as a supervisor.’ – Jeni Nelson 2019
‘Ben has been my supervisor for almost 4 months now. He is supportive and encouraging, and offers practical solutions and approaches when I need some inspiration. I really look forward to my supervision sessions – his enthusiasm and humour gives me a real boost. This is really important to me as I work in private practice and spend the majority of the day in one to one sessions with clients. Ben shares his knowledge with me which is really helping me to grow and develop my approach in practice. Would I recommend Ben as a Supervisor??? ABSOLUTELY!!!’ – Lucy Hamblett 2019
How should you benefit from supervision?
When asked recently what therapists ‘get out of’ supervision they said:
- Help with clients
- Personal Development
- Social interaction
- Help with business
- Professional development
- Because it’s fun!
Whether you’re just starting your journey or are a more experienced therapist I offer a supervision that fulfils all of the above and more. Using a Solution Focused approach supervision is supervisee centred and looks to get you your ‘best hopes’ from a session.
One-to-One and Group Sessions
I offer one-to-one sessions from my practice rooms in Stretford. These last around an hour and give us a chance to really focus on ‘what’s best’ for your clients and practice.
From mid 2019 I’ll be looking to run group supervision from my practice room in Stretford for smaller groups and from Central Manchester for larger groups.
If you are unable to travel to supervision due to distance, family/work commitments etc. please get in touch to arrange a Skype session. Each session lasts one hour and is one to one – Distance (online) group supervision may be taken up in future.

One to one, Group, Skype and Telephone sessions can be mixed and matched as you see fit – You’re the expert. Telephone supervision generally suits those further afield with lower internet speeds or those who are ‘out and about’.
As telephone queries may be more time critical i.e. a difficult session or needing a quick answer to a question these may be arranged via text message or email. I endeavour to reply to all queries as quickly as possible. That said, there may be times when I am with a client or outside of working hours. A common sense approach should be taken at all times.
Dates and Payment
Ongoing Monthly Supervision – payment is by monthly standing order (£15 per month over 12 months). This includes 6 sessions a year, a quarterly newsletter as well as phone and email support (fair usage applies). Once you’ve got in touch you will receive further details with the supervision agreement and contract.
One off supervision sessions can be arranged for qualified therapists who do not wish to have a supervision contract, these are £30 per hour session (Payment by PayPal).
