The HTCA Supervision Program

HTCA Clinical Supervision for Clinical Hypnotherapists

“We cannot live only for ourselves. A thousand fibres connect us with our fellow men; and among those fibres, as sympathetic threads, our actions run as causes, and they come back to us as effects.”

― Herman Melville

Practising clinical hypnotherapists will recognise the importance of maintaining contact with like-minded practitioners. To maintain their Private Health Care Provider Number registration, clinical hypnotherapists need to be registered with an accredited Hypnotherapy association. Maintaining this registration requires them to participate in clinical supervision and ongoing professional development.

 Hypnotherapy Training College – Australia provides regular supervision in a relaxed environment with an emphasis on ongoing education and professional development. Our goal is to help clinical hypnotherapists grow personally and professionally.

As clinical supervisors, we have many of essential requirements to fulfil. We will discuss your therapy work with the client and may delve deeper into your methods and approach to helping clients. We’ll provide ongoing insights into the latest research and developments in approaches and techniques which are used in the profession. Importantly, we’re available to assist at times when you feel uncertain about specific client issues or even emergencies.

We provide structured sessions. These sessions can either be one-on-one or group sessions where you will have the opportunity to learn from the experiences of other therapists.  

Why is the HTCA Supervision program so different?

We understand the time and energy it takes for a Clinical Hypnotherapist to start up and maintain a clinic. Therefore, we are here to help, and we go beyond what is expected.
