Service Agreement Counselling

It is recommended that consultation contracts be submitted in writing, if necessary, to ensure clarity (see NCS Code of Ethics, point 9). Submission in the form of a written document can also provide the necessary space for legal intervention if the conditions are not met. A “consulting contract” (or “consulting contract”) is a mutual agreement between the consultant and the client in which the structure of the therapeutic working alliance is presented. • Details of why the consultation may not be able to continue (except following an agreed closure of the meeting) – i.e. any contraindications that may lead to conflicts of interest or affect ethical boundaries. (Ref: NCS Code of Ethics www.nationalcounsellingsociety.org/about-us/code-of-ethics/.) • Type of consulting work – this is a very short (a small introductory paragraph about how you work. == References ===== External links ===* Official website that you carry out regular progress checks; that you work until the agreed end of the consultation work; that the customer “may feel worse before they feel better” etc…). www.nationalcounsellingsociety.org/members/information/benefits/. A consulting contract ensures that the consultation process is carried out in a good, safe and professional manner and highlights the consultant`s responsibilities to clients as well as the client`s responsibilities to the consultant. A consultation contract is also a transparent basis for informed consent. • GDPR – www.nationalcounsellingsociety.org/blog/general-data-protection-regulation-gdpr-and-data-protection/.

There are no established requirements for a consulting contract, but a good rule of thumb is to include details on the following points: As a rule, a consultant will present the key points of the consulting contract orally before the start of the sessions to ensure that his client is satisfied with the conditions of the work to be performed. This first oral presentation allows customers to ask questions and clarify the points of the contract on which they are not clear. The consultant can then present the details discussed in a written document signed by both the consultant and the client. The consulting contract does not have to be a long document. This is usually a single page (maximum two pages) and contains a list of important elements to create a secure, confidential and professional consulting service. www.counsellingcpd.org/product/ethical-practice/. • Details of relevant company memberships and information on independent complaint procedures • Number of meetings for which it was originally agreed. It is important to use clear, concise and non-jargony language. It`s also helpful to keep some parts of the contract template flexible so you can tailor your contract to a variety of customers. These are usually session hours/number of sessions, etc.

• Brief details on how to keep records/notes and how to protect confidential data. This course is worth it, even if it only refreshes the in-depth knowledge you may already have on the subject. • Privacy information (including details about when confidentiality must be breached and to whom this breach may be directed) If you are working with children, adolescents or vulnerable adults who need to obtain consent from a parent, primary caregiver or relevant third party, be sure to add a section to the contract that allows you to: Collect names, signatures and data for such consent. Please read more about working with these customers through NCS`s backup policy. • National Counselling Society (NCS) Code of Ethics You`ve worked hard and are enjoying an exciting new career as a counselor or psychotherapist, so why is it worth thinking about specialization then?
