Counselling Supervision is a requirement for counsellors registered with the Australian Counselling Association – the peak counselling body in Australia. Like other registered counsellors, I have a qualified counselling supervisor, with whom I meet regularly.

Starting Counselling Supervision

As a qualified counselling supervisor, I am able to offer professional counselling supervision to qualified counsellors as part of their ACA membership requirements. If you are a counsellor seeking supervision, the first step is to contact me by telephone: 0409 191 342 or email me via the Contact Page.

On receipt of your contact, we will schedule a time for a brief chat over the phone to see if I can supply what you are looking for. If you are then comfortable to go further, the next step is to email me a brief biography (about 3/4 to a page) about yourself. Briefly explain your goals for your counselling career and for counselling supervision.

Counselling Supervision Contract and First Session

On receipt of your biography, I will email you a contract, setting out the goals of supervision, each party’s responsibilities and other relevant information. If you are happy with it, please make an appointment for your first session. You book this via the Online Booking Calendar. Also, read all the information on the Booking Calendar page. All private appointments are pre-paid at the time of booking. Also check out Booking Information. At your first session, we both sign the contract and each keep a copy. You can either print out a copy of the contract and bring it with you, or I can print a copy here for you. Most of the first session consists of discussing the contract, formalising arrangements and covering ethical issues. If you are interstate or far away from Hobart, you can take your session via Zoom. We then each sign with a digital signature and return signed copies to each other via email.

Continuing Counselling Supervision Sessions

You can then book further supervision sessions at your convenience via the Online Booking Calendar. The calendar shows you the available dates and times. Wherever possible, I recommend face-to-face sessions, providing that COVID save protocols are met (you will find these on the booking page). However, if attending in person is not convenient or you are interstate, you can take your sessions by Zoom or phone.

Practice Location

For face-to-face sessions, the practice address is: 5/17 Margaret Street, Sandy Bay,Tasmania. If you need directions, let me know. Regarding parking, there are usually places in Margaret Street and nearby Ashfield Street. Also, there is a spot in the car-park underneath my unit that might be available, although it is a little tricky to get into. When you arrive at the apartment complex, go through the entrance door, up the steps to the first floor, turn left and I am the second on the right. Let me know if you want  more information.  If you are taking your session by phone, I will phone you at the session time. If you are taking it by Zoom, I will email you the link beforehand. As mentioned, please see these as second options only if you cannot attend in person.

Fees

Individual sessions are $70 for the first 12-months, thereafter $75. Fees cover the 50-minute contact time plus time preparing for sessions, completing notes and other administrative tasks.  In addition, group sessions are $50. So that we can accommodate interstate supervisees, group sessions are by Zoom only. You will be informed ahead of time when one is scheduled.

I look forward to meeting and working with you.
