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. As a qualified counselling supervisor, I am able to offer professional counselling supervision to qualified counsellors as part of their ACA membership requirements. Supervision is a contracted arrangement. If you are a counsellor seeking supervision, please see the steps below.

Starting Counselling Supervision

1. Optional: If you would like a brief 5-10 minute phone call to clarify anything, please phone me on 0409 191 342. In the event that I am busy when you call, please leave a brief message and I will phone you back as soon as I am free. If I answer but cannot speak adequately at the time, we will reschedule a suitable time for me to call you back.

2. If you don’t need a phone call, or following the phone call, please  write a brief ¾ – 1 page biography in a Word document about where you are in your counselling journey and your aspirations for supervision. Please attach it to an email and send to me at: pauline@radiancehobart.com.au. I let you know when I receive it. If there is anything in your requirements for supervision that I feel I cannot meet, I will let you know, otherwise we can go ahead.

3. You then free to book your first session via the Online Booking Calendar, where you will find full instructions. Sessions are prepaid at the time of booking. Also check out Booking Information. Once I receive your  booking, I will prepare a contract and email it to you. Please peruse this before your session and make a note of any queries.

4. At your first session, we go through any queries you may have about the contract and clarify ethical requirements of counselling and supervision. We can both sign off on the contract. If you are local and can attend face-to-face, we can do this in person. I’ll have a hard copy of the contract here and will give you a copy when we have both signed. if you are interstate or far away, the session and the signing off can be done virtually. The session is then yours to bring up any issues you wish to discuss. I can also give you information about the topic areas that supervision can cover.

Future Supervision Sessions

You can book future sessions at your discretion via the online booking calendar. Periodically group sessions via Zoom are available. These are useful to interact with colleagues. When these are available I email you the details and let you know ahead of time.

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. 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.

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.

I look forward to meeting and working with you.
