Quest has a wealth of approachable and friendly Cognitive Hypnotherapy Supervisors from all walks of life, so you will find it easy to choose a supervisor with whom you can form a productive and supportive partnership.
I qualified as a Quest Graduate at the beginning of 2007 with Q19. Since then I have worked full-time as a Cognitive Hypnotherapist, whilst combining this with family life. I completed the MasterPract and Confident Childbirth Courses in 2007. I have attended all of the courses offered by Quest, and have assisted on the Diploma and MasterPract course several times. I can often be found at the back of the classroom of the Diploma weekend these days, whilst giving training support to Trevor, when I’m not interviewing prospective students for the diploma course.
In the past, I have worked as a secretary after training with Pitman’s, as the ‘Bounty Lady’ in maternity at Hillingdon Hospital (giving out free sample packs to the new mums) and in later years, as a London Taxi Driver (black cab) – all BQ (Before Quest). While each of these roles were interesting in their own right, I can honestly say that what I do now is the most interesting and rewarding work that I could ever hope to do. Combining my therapy practice with supervision seemed a natural progression for me, as I really enjoy helping others to be the best they can. Just like therapy, it’s great to be able to be a part of people’s journeys, as they develop into the therapists they want to be.
I’d like to think that I can have a laid back approach to supervision, whilst giving you the very best I can. That way, we get a working relationship going that can be open and honest. I’m not here to police you or your practice, or to tell you how to do things. What I am here for is to help you at the times you need help the most, whilst giving you regular support to ensure that both you and your clients are getting what they need. That way, your practice is likely to grow in the way you want it to, as satisfied clients mean great referrals.
I’d really like the opportunity to have an informal chat with you about how we can work together to get what you need from supervision.

I qualified as a Quest Cognitive Hypnotherapist on Q26 – in the summer of 2009. I immediately resigned from my job and started work as a full-time hypnotherapist. Some people told me this was a mistake – but I have enjoyed every minute and have built busy and successful practices in Hertfordshire and London.
As soon as I qualified I went on to complete my NLP Master Practitioner with Quest, completed the Confident Childbirth course and have also enjoyed assisting on the HPD Diploma Course. I love learning and am always reading or attending courses or seminars.
Before all of this I worked for a large multi-national retailer running their IT Help Desks and rolling out IT systems across the world. However, I realised that the most interesting parts of my job were when I was interacting with people and helping team members resolve their problems. So decided it was time to retrain and build my career in a completely new area.
I have benefited from supervision in my own practice over the years – both helping me cope with unexpected client issues and also in building a successful and profitable business. I believe that supervision should be flexible and enjoyable and focussed on helping you to achieve your goals in a safe and ethical way.
I offer supervision via telephone, Skype or Facetime – or 1:2:1 in either of my practices. If you would like an informal chat about how we can work together please contact me:

As an active member of the Quest community, training as a supervisor was a step I was excited to take. I believe that supervision which leaves you feeling energised and ready to continue your development is an essential part of being an excellent therapist – and that’s what I aim to provide. With your outcomes in mind, we will work together to ensure you are providing your clients with the best possible interventions, in turn leading them to their required solution. My regular postings on the forum will give you a flavour of how I work with others, and the varied mix of clients I have worked with, which in turn leads to the experience I bring with me as a supervisor, and very active therapist.
Our relationship will be one that helps you to feel supported and ready for any challenge. I am happy to work 1:1, in groups, via Skype, telephone or in person – whatever supervision is the best that supports you, I am keen to provide. I live in Alton in Hampshire, but would be prepared to travel if we can get together groups that would benefit from that. Would you like to know more? Then contact me 01420 543365 or email@example.com. I look forward to working with you.
Emerging from a background in Investment Banking and IT, I trained with Quest in the class of Q20, qualifying in July 2007 and subsequently going on to complete the MasterPrac in January 2008.
I no longer offer ongoing supervision for general practice. However, as someone who specialises in addictions and smoking cessation I am happy to offer ad-hoc, specialist help with particular issues that arise within these areas (with the approval of your supervisor).
I graduated with Q16 in April 2006 and completed my HPD a year later in July 2007. I did my Confident Childbirth training in 2007 as well, and I qualified as a Master Practitioner and Project You Coach in 2012.
I currently work part time and complement running my Cognitive Hypnotherapy practice (seeing clients and supervising) with raising my three young daughters. I am also assisting on Q33, which I’m finding incredibly rewarding – it feels like I’ve gone full circle in my Quest journey, and I know there is still heaps more to learn.
I consider myself to be an active member of Quest, and I regularly visit the online forums and attend Quest meetings when and where I can – I enjoy having a regular boost of ‘Questie-love’, whether socially or in a more formal learning environment.
I specialise in working with people who are struggling with eating disorders – most of you will probably know my name from the Diploma course. I am the Specialist Advisor for the NCH in the field of eating disorders, and I am more than willing to offer my personal and professional experience, knowledge and support in this area to anyone who requests it.
I qualified as an Accredited Hypnotherapy Supervisor in 2012, and my aim within supervision is to share your journey and to work with you to help you develop from being a consciously competent therapist, to an unconsciously excellent therapist. I offer supervision sessions face to face, via Skype and over the telephone. I will also be setting up group supervision opportunities throughout the year in the near future as well.
I love all aspects of my job – so much so that I really don’t consider it to be work. Any spare time that I do get is taken up with writing and taking photos – my other two passions.
As with choosing a therapist, it’s important that you find the supervisor who is right for you. If you are interesting in finding out more about my approach to supervision, please feel free to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org, or give me a call on 07794 595783.
I look forward to hearing from you soon
Hi, If you have read my postings on the forum or maybe on facebook I hope you already have a good idea about the kind of person I am, for any that don’t, here is a little about me and my background.
I was a graphic designer for the BBC in my former existence and trained with Quest in 2006 on Q18, many of the skills I had as a designer have been useful to me as a cognitive hypnotherapist, such as creativity, flexibility and the ability to think out of the box. I have enjoyed assisting on various courses and working as a supervisor fits my desire to help therapists be the best they can be.
Since my earliest days with Quest I have been fortunate to have had excellent supervision and know just how valuable this reflective and non-judgemental support can be; I believe it has helped to develop my skills as a cognitive hypnotherapist as a result, and it is this type of supervision that I will be looking to maintain with those who come to me.
I don’t have a particular specialism, but many of my clients come to me for anxiety related problems and I enjoy working with couples for confident childbirth. The great thing about cognitive hypnotherapy is that we have the tools to work with whatever the client brings, so that it is always a challenge and there is always more to learn.
Whether you choose me because we share a similar outlook on life or because you feel that our differences will help you to approach your work from another perspective. I aim to help you support your client’s, and your own development by helping you to find solutions as you gain in experience, and to make the process as enjoyable as possible.

Hi, I trained with Quest in 2010, as part of Q28.
Prior to this I had spent 20 years in the public sector in Children’s Services; youth offending, family work, residential and therapeutic work with adolescents.
I am now completely self-employed as a Cognitive Hypnotherapist and trainer, something I would never thought was possible before training with Quest. Since then I have assisted on Q32, completed my Master Practitioner course and trained as a supervisor with the NCH in 2014. Prior to this, I had trained in Supervision with the Brief Therapy Practice in 2007. This is a solution-focussed way of working and is supported by the NCH as their model for supervision.
When I first started as a Cognitive Hypnotherapist, I felt like a fake (Imposter syndrome-that was me!) Supervision enabled me to build on my successes, learn from my mistakes, but not dwell on them. When I first started, I looked at others and thought I needed to be more like them. Supervision gave me the confidence to develop and grow my business at a pace and in a direction that was right for me.
I love having the freedom, control and choice to work in a way that suits me. I look forward to working with you to help you develop that too.
I offer Skype sessions, group and 1:1 from my home in Dorset.
Feel free to contact me for a chat via the details below.

I have been a Supervisor since 2012 and a Questie since Q26. Based in Wimbledon, I run a full time practice . I put the success of my practice down to passion, enthusiasm, a good website designed and run by Emma ( my daughter and fellow Questie), a genuine interest in my clients, hard work which I absolutely love, and total belief and confidence in what I am doing. And of course brilliant training, my natural curiosity and love of learning, and a lot of CPD ( including Addiction, Smoking, Weightloss, EMDR training, EFT, childbirth, Parts therapy with Brian Roet, and a Coaching and Neuroscience course at ITS).
I chose not to specialise or ‘niche’ market myself, because I thrive on variety. That said, however, I was the Phobia Specialist for the NCH, became a Slimquest Coach (weightloss) back in the day, and have extensive experience working with women for antenatal, birth and postnatal issues. My real speciality is moving clients from ELOC to ILOC, because I believe that is at the heart of everyones problems, whatever they maybe.
I have assisted on several diploma courses and two or three Master Pracs, partly because I always learn more that way, but mostly because I love helping people to grow, to learn and to develop their skills and confidence, and reach their potential. I guess there is something of a teacher in me
( I taught NCT antenatal classes for 25 years).
So I love supervision. Over the years I personally have found it an invaluable resource because of the support and guidance it offers, with tricky cases, personal/professional issues, ethical challenges and practice building. And that is what I offer my supervisees.
Supervision is bit like coaching, in that now you are qualified, you do have the answers inside…you just might need a little help to find them sometimes. So I will never tell you what to do because I already respect you as a Cognitive Hypnotherapist in your own right. Instead, supervision sessions provide a safe place to explore your options, discuss techniques, expand and balance your knowledge and skills, calm your fears and build your confidence, and help you to build your practice.
Most of my supervisees prefer to work via Skype or Facetime, but I am happy to work face to face or by phone if you prefer.
Feel free to message or call me if you would like to have a chat about it.

Q20, Master Practitioner 2008
I am a full time Cognitive Hypnotherapist, coach and trainer. I have done the Confident Childbirth training and I am also a Clean Language facilitator.
I am the NCH Training and Accreditation Officer and am a member of the Executive Committee. I am also a member of the UK Penn Resilience Programme ‘How to Thrive’ team http://www.howtothrive.org.
My approach to supervision focuses on what you do well, it builds on what already works for you and it supports your continuous professional development. I want to ensure you get what you need from our sessions and so we build a safe, open and honest relationship to ensure your specific requirements are met . I’ve benefitted so much from my experience as a supervisee over the years and I’m still learning!! I’m really looking forward to providing this opportunity for others.
My background and experience is from working in the Criminal Justice System for 25 years. I have a broad experience of working with a diverse range of clients.
I am passionate about what I do however and wherever I do it and I also like to have fun as I do it so, be prepared for some northern humour!!

I qualified as a Quest Cognitive Hypnotherapist as part of Q27 in 2010 and set up in business the same year. I have been working as a cognitive hypnotherapist since then and have enjoyed every minute of it. I have successful practices in Tunbridge Wells and Westerham.
I have continued to be involved in Quest completing my MasterPrac the following year and recently assisting on Q34 diploma course. I am a regular contributor to Perception magazine and continue to develop my own practice with training both inside and outside Quest.
Supervision has been an invaluable part of my development both supporting and challenging me to think about my practice and how I work with clients. I gained so much from supervision both personally and professionally that I decided to train as a supervisor myself. I am passionate about supervision and the role it can play in enabling you to build a successful and sustainable career.
I offer 1-2-1 session via skype or phone and also offer face to face group supervision in either Tunbridge Wells or Westerham.
Contact me on 07590 664669 or firstname.lastname@example.org
I trained on Q27 and was originally from London but now live in Dunbar, East Lothian, Scotland. When I first started I was working full time in the NHS and then I moved to Scotland three years ago and started working full time as a therapist so I appreciate how hard starting out can be.
I mainly work from my therapy room at home and also have a day a week at a local therapy centre and an ad-hoc room at another centre across the border, so Ican help you consider the pros and cons for both home and outside therapy rooms.
Quest has been a major changing point in my life and I believe passionately in supporting others, Quest and non-Quest, in developing and becoming the best therapist they possibly can be. I will support you with regard to your clients and any queries you may have, helping you grow your business whilst encouraging you to continue your training and your Continuing Professional Development (CPD) work.
You can find out more about me at my website, www.LothianTherapy.com and please feel free to contact me for a no obligation chat. Supervision sessions tend to be via Skype or phone, my details are below and I wish you well for the future.

I established my practice very soon after qualifying from the diploma in July 2008. I then went on to complete the Master Prac in January 2009 and since then have enjoyed my continued professional development within and outside of Quest.
Prior to my career change and becoming a Cognitive Hypnotherapist I was on the senior management team at British Airways. My role as a Business Relationship Manager utilised my people and communication skills building relationships across disparate teams (such as ‘IT techies’ and ‘hairy ar**ed engineers’).
As well as having a general practice I also specialise in fertility, selling products as well as seeing clients and have a particular interest in sports performance and working with teenagers.
With my practice being the family’s only source of income I very much treat it as a business and looking back I can see how supervision has played a key role in my professional and practice development.
As well as a Cognitive Hypnotherapist I am a husband, father, barefoot runner, Spurs fan and mac evangelist.
Feel free to contact me to discuss anything about supervision. With my supervisees being all over the UK I provide group and individual supervision by Skype or telephone as well as face-to-face for those in Cornwall. See my contact details below.

My Quest training made a huge difference to my life. It opened my eyes to people differences and helped me to focus on my strengths and work on my weaknesses. This has become a major part of my practice as a cognitive hypnotherapist and as a supervisor.
I trained on Q29 and have been practicing out of rooms in Belsize Park, just around the corner to Regents college, ever since. I have a keen interest in working with self esteem, anxiety and depression and work with both adults and children.
I find supervision invaluable and an essential part of my practice. It is a place where I can openly discuss the various elements of my practice and I find it is still helping me to develop. This is probably why I trained as a supervisor because even as a supervisor I still manage to gain new perspectives by working with other therapists.
I tend to work mainly on a one to one basis but am happy to run group supervision sessions in London and offer one off sessions to anyone who would like to discuss working with children.
I am happy to work over the phone or face to face. Feel free to contact me if you have any questions.
