This is a contract between you (the supervisee) and Anna Bobak trading as Fife Counselling
Terms: We agree to meet for the purposes of supervision within the terms of this supervision contract and within the guidelines and requirements set out by your training provider, placement organisation / organisation, and our respective professional bodies.
A trainee counsellor fee of £45 per 60 minute session, or
A qualified counsellor fee of £60 per 60 minute session.
Payment is due on the day of your supervision session.
We will meet at a frequency that fulfils your training provider’s requirements e.g. 1.5 : 8 ratio of supervision sessions to clinical client hours, or which fulfils your professional body’s requirements. This usually means one hour every 2 weeks.
Our sessions will be online using Signal or your organisation’s preferred video conferencing platform.
I accept that you may need to contact me in emergencies or during an ethical dilemma in between sessions (I offer a free 15 minute call in these instances. After that, additional time would be charged per minute on a pro rata basis in line with your session fee).
Form filling and report writing:
I charge a flat fee of £30 per form, letter or report that you may require me to write as part of your course or training requirements.
The content of the supervision sessions will remain confidential, with the following exceptions:
Where there is a risk of harm to yourself, your client, or others;
Where I have been instructed to break confidentiality by a court of law;
Where you have given permission, in relation to the expectations and requirements of your training provider/organisation.
For the purposes of my own supervision.
You agree not to share confidential client information with me via text/email.
I require a minimum of 48 hours notice for cancellation of a supervision session. The full session fee is payable otherwise. If I am ill I will reschedule our session to another mutually convenient time.
Expectations and responsibilities for trainees:
You will prepare for supervision and be responsible for ensuring that all requirements in relation to your training provider/organisation are met.
You will use supervision appropriately to allow me to evaluate your fitness to practice for your counselling qualification as well as for writing the supervisor's report.
You agree to the sharing of information between me, your placement manager, training provider, or organisation manager, for the purposes of evaluation and safety of practice, if appropriate.
You will follow the policies and case management practices as standard in your placement organisation/organisation.
You will liaise with me regarding the completion of supervisor report forms, evaluation of your practice, or any other documents that may need to be completed by me on your behalf.
I will support you non-judgmentally, offering collegial respect. Where appropriate I will offer academic sources and therapeutic resources to inform your practice and guide you to support your clients more effectively.
I work relationally, from a place of respect.
I acknowledge the breadth of experience and training that you bring to your role.
As of June 2023, I have over 400 hours of supervision experience.
I look forward to working with you.
