Counselling Booking Information

If this is the first time you have attended counselling with Radiance Hobart Counselling & Self-Development, the following booking information will assist you. Sessions are available by Face-to-Face, Phone or Zoom. Accordingly, you can check these links out for more information.

For Counselling Supervision, please check this link to find out how to set this up. Counselling and Supervision bookings are made via the on-line On-line Booking Calendar.  Instructions are there – very easy.

Confidentiality at Sessions

Importantly, a requirement for Counsellors and other therapists is to ensure confidentiality for sessions. (If you attend any therapy sessions where personal information is shared, confidentiality should be explained and clarified with you before you start). You show that you agree to the conditions of confidentiality by signing a consent form. If you attend sessions Face-to-Face, you will sign the form in person at your session.

If you intend to take your session by Phone or Zoom, you will sign the form digitally and submit it by email at the time of booking. To do this, you will download this form from the On-line Booking Calendar page. If you are unsure how to make and use a digital signature, the following instructions explain how.

Instructions for Completing Confidentiality Agreement

First, download the confidentiality agreement and save to your desktop. Next, open the document and go to the top bar and click on ‘Markup.’ From the menu that opens up, click on the icon that looks like capital ‘J’ written in script (on the right of the square box with ‘T’ inside it). You will see a box in which you can make your digital signature. In accordance with the instructions there, type your signature with your finger onto your track-pad . Then, click ‘Create Signature.’ You can try a few times to get it right.

Whenever you want to use it in a PDF, you click that box and the signature appears in your document. You just move it with your cursor to where you want it. Then you can click in the document to insert the date and your name. Boxes will appear into which you can type the information.

Once you have signed and completed the form, save it and then email it back to me prior to your counselling session: pauline@radiancehobart.com.au. Please note that sessions cannot take place until I have received the agreement. If all else fails, print out the form, sign and scan it and email it back to me. I will clarify any concerns or questions you have about confidentiality at the commencement of your first session. If you have any problems with this, please don’t hesitate to contact me.

Counselling Sessions

Counselling sessions are 50-minutes. Session length refers to the time spent with clients. In addition, anything from 30-minutes to an hour or more is spent on each client typing up notes, preparing information and other associated tasks. Appointment times and current counselling fees are listed on the On-Line Booking Calendar page.
