Choosing a supervisor for your clinical practice is an important decision. I hope the following information provides you with enough information to make the correct choice. If you wish to discuss supervision for your practice, or require any further information, don't hesitate to contact me.
Supervision is a requirement for membership of the major hypnotherapy organizations and is generally regarded as essential to the provision of effective therapy. It is a central form of support that can facilitate personal development, encourage new ideas, and highlight strengths. It helps therapist to notice what works – their skills, abilities, and creative idea when working with clients and growing their business.
Solution focused supervision is respectful and non-expert, and involves working collaboratively with supervisees to encourage growth and development. Relationships are based on mutual respect and equality that encourages openness and honesty and provides an opportunity to reflect on client and business issues in a safe, supportive, and non-judgmental environment.
Solution focused supervision uses:
- The supervisee's strengths
- Focused questions
- Constructive feedback
- Goal setting.
The sessions will also be used to update supervisees on changes to our knowledge base, updates in understanding and techniques, and ways to market your business (including the use of social media). Solution focused supervision is a model that can work very well with other modalities.
One-to-one supervision can take place using Zoom or phone. It is beneficial because it allows the focus to be on the therapist's individual workload and circumstances. one-to-one Supervision lasts up to an hour.
Supplementary phone supervision provides support inbetween one-to-one sessions where needed. A maximum of one hour is provided in the month following attendance at a session.

One-to-one supervision costs £35. This can be by Zoom or phone.
In the month following a supervision session, supervisees can contact me by phone, text, or email with issues and I will respond within 24 hours.
If the amount of contact time between sessions exceeds one hour, I will add up the minutes and invoice the supervisee at the next supervision session.
What do his supervisees say about Trevor?
“I loved one-to-one supervision with Trevor. He has so much knowledge and experience. I blend various other disciplines with SFH, particularly NLP, as Trevor does. Trevor has great clarity about how to maintain the principles of Solution Focused Hypnotherapy while introducing other supporting practices, and how to communicate and differentiate practices to clients without losing SFH’s unique impact. Trevor has been able to advise me on complex ethical concerns and helped me ensure my practice is effective and safe. Trevor is both challenging and reassuring. Making me think and reflect, while getting concerns and worries in perspective.”
“Trevor Eddolls is an incredibly generous and warm individual with a vast knowledge base of theoretical frameworks relating to hypnotherapy. I chose Trevor as a supervisor because I knew instantly the connection was there and that I was in good hands with his years of experience and approachable, kind nature. I would definitely recommend Trevor to anyone looking for supervision support.”
“I have had a number of supervision sessions with Trevor over the last 6 months. I chose Trevor as a supervisor because I have a particular interest in using hypnotherapy to improve sporting performance. Trevor was very knowledgeable in this area and was able to break the knowledge down into manageable chunks, making it easier for me to understand. This enabled me to put together a session-by-session plan to use with clients. I have since put the information Trevor shared with me to good use to help a client improve their performance for squash.
I am a recent graduate from a CPHT school, so it was important that I chose someone that was experienced and knowledgeable in Solution Focused Hypnotherapy. Trevor has been able to help me progress my understanding of the effects of SFH on different conditions but in addition he has been able to teach me additional NLP techniques that were not addressed on my course.
It was important to me that my supervisor was able to offer 1-1 sessions which Trevor does. He also always responds promptly to any emails I send looking for help and advice.
I have gained so much knowledge from Trevor to date and I am sure that I will continue to do so in the future.”
“I very much enjoy my monthly supervision sessions with Trevor. He is a highly experienced and qualified Solution Focused Hypnotherapist who has a broad yet deep approach. Trevor practises other modalities…. NLP and Mindfulness, whilst always remaining Solution Focused at the core.
If I ever need guidance on tailoring my hypnotherapy scripts to a client’s issue, Trevor immediately knows what will work well; such is his familiarity with the scripts.
In Solution Focused style, Trevor offers me sound advice yet leaves room and openness for me to trust in my own judgement and decisions.”
