Supervision Session fees
Each 60-minute session is $300. Supervision also incurs $30 GST for a total of $330.
48 hours are required to change or cancel a session. Any less notice and the full fee is payable. My calendar will send you an email reminder three days before the session.
Sessions always start and finish at the arranged time. I won't keep you waiting. Conversely, we don't go overtime if you are late (which is the only way I can guarantee that I won't keep anyone waiting).
I will send you an invoice a few days before the session. When you pay by bank transfer the day before, you save time during your session and the credit card fee. If you prefer, you can pay at the start of the session by credit card. There is a transaction fee for paying by credit card. The fee is equal to what Stripe charges when processing the payments and that is 1.75% plus 30 cents.
You can browse my schedule and reserve a session time for an online supervision meeting here. If no appointments are visible, it means that I am fully booked. If so, send an email to me, asking to go on the waiting list.
During the past two years of working online, I have optimized my technology to make online meetings feel more like meeting in person. By experimenting, I have learned what makes the quality of the online meeting better or worse. What stood out is that the best video quality and eye contact is achieved when both people use a smartphone or iPad and a headset.
Here is how I set up online meetings. Please:
1. Use your iPhone, Smartphone, or an iPad in portrait mode. Don't use your computer or laptop.
2. If this is a group meeting of two or more, each person must be:
on their own separate device. Each person will then appear to be at an equal distance from me, I will receive quality video and experience good eye contact.
in their own separate room. If two people are in the same physical room while on separate devices, it creates audio feedback.
3. Use your phone's earbud headset. This is not for your benefit, it is for mine. It prevents me from hearing a minor echo, delay, or interruption when I speak. While it is not a huge problem, it is big enough to disrupt my concentration.
4. Use a stand like this to prop up your device. Don't hold your device in your hand. The movement can induce motion sickness in the receiver (me)! Below are links to examples of stands you can purchase.
5. We will use Face Time or Google Duo as the platform. If you have an Android phone, Google Duo may be preinstalled. You can download Google Duo from the Apple App Store or the Google Play Store (Android). Because both FaceTime and Google Duo are end-to-end encrypted,
they are safe for confidential meetings and can't be hacked.
Here is your checklist.
smartphone or iPad (is it charged up or plugged in?)
earbud headset (if Bluetooth is it charged up and synced to your device?)
stand for phone or iPad
download and set up Google Duo
organize two rooms
