Session Length & Time:
Sessions last for 55 minutes and will usually take place on the
same day and at the same time. Frequency of supervision will be negotiated with

supervisee and current caseload.

session time, then I will charge on a pro rata basis.

Counselling & Psychotherapy, I receive regular supervision from a supervisor

2. If I am seriously concerned about your client I may wish to consult with another
professional, such as a trainer, line manager, senior counsellor etc. However, I
