Professional Supervision for Massage Practitioners
Supervision is all about supporting fellow therapists as you evolve into the practitioners you want to be. This support is available in FOUR different formats and all are recognised as valuable continued professional development (CPD) by the Massage Training Institute (MTI)
1. Half Day Hands-on Supervision/Training Sessions
These half day sessions are for massage practitioners who want supervision, want support, want connection, and want to have a laugh with fellow massage buddies, but can’t commit to a monthly meeting. Or perhaps you already attend a monthly meeting but would also value a longer session to have more time to dive deeper into things.
I’m hosting 4 themed half day sessions between September 2021 and March 2022 over the year at BCMB…
We’ll be using the amazing Trail Guide book again to help us explore….
September 13th 2021: Quads & Knees DONE!!!
November 15th 2021: Hamstrings
January 17th 2022: Shins & Calves
March 14th 2022: Ankles & Feet
We’ll be thoroughly grounded by Easter!
Numbers strictly limited to 12 people per session. Advance booking essential. Contact me directly via 07976 710369 or firstname.lastname@example.org
£44 per session (or £38 if you’re currently in a supervision group with me).
2020 Cancelled due to Covid 🙁
April “Trail Guide Time”. Whether you’ve bought the fantastic and terrifying Trail Guide book but never got round to using it, or are still pondering the investment, we will spend some time together as a group demystifying the beast that is The Trail Guide. Look forward to getting stuck in, decoding the jargon and confidently palpating like never before! I’ve a feeling this could become a regular feature … 💛
July “Abdominal Awesomeness”. Using the Trail Guide to help us traverse awesome abdominal massage.
October “Open Hearted, Heart Opening Massage”. Using the Trail Guide again to assist in our anatomical discoveries. And exploring what it might mean to work in an open hearted fashion, to promote heart opening.
December “Self Care, After Care and Getting in Shape for Christmas!”
Contact me if you’re interested for 2020 too.

Supervision can give a safe, open space for the developing and experienced therapist, for honing and evolving your skills, approach and practice. In my groups, I’m all about kindness, honesty, sharing and having a nice time! I aim to share what I know and what I’ve learnt, so that you can benefit from the mistakes and miss-steps I’ve taken, as well as from my smooth sailing and successes! We can share learning from courses, get advice for working with clients (maintaining client confidentiality, of course), practice good bodyuse, revise skills and learn new ones. We can even crack out the text books and apps and get on the APP train!
Practicing What I Preach!
I’ve received supervision within groups run by Charmaine Storer, Andy Fagg and Tim Bartlett for many years now. I’m convinced that paying attention to my practice in this way makes me a better therapist. Having a safe space where I can be vulnerable, ask my ‘silly’ questions, voice my concerns or doubts, practice things I’m experimenting with, and revisit and revise skills and knowledge is just so valuable. And such a lot of fun!
