Spirit and Purpose
OUR SPIRITUAL DIRECTION AGREEMENT
Our Relationship is based on Mutual Respect
We agree to meet regularly in a comfortable location (in-person or on a virtual platform) where confidentiality may be maintained. We agree to schedule (up to) 1.5 hour sessions (including pre-session and post-session contemplation). If more time is required, we agree to schedule a follow-up session as soon as both Director and Directee* are available.
*Directee is the Client
Time of Sessions and Changes
We agree to begin and end our sessions on time. An email reminder will be sent from the Director regarding all scheduled appointments. If a session date and time must be changed, we agree to provide the other 48-hours notice via email or phone*.
*Emergencies not withstanding
Boundaries of Confidentiality
Should the Directee share details of intentions to harm self or others, or know of others in these types of situations, the Director will contact the emergency support needed immediately. The Director will accompany the Directee during this time of emergency response and action.
The Director meets regularly with a Supervisor who is trained in consultation, education and self-reflection. We agree that non-identifying details of a session may be shared with the Director’s Supervisor with the sole purpose of enriching the practice of spiritual direction for all parties.
