Supervisors also represent something of a special case in terms of legal liability. Supervisors carry legal liability for their work in supervising the therapist, but do not appear to owe a direct duty of care to the client as such. This is apart from the normal duty of confidence, which is owed to both supervisee and client. The main line of legal liability will be to the supervised therapist, primarily via the terms and conditions of the contract, which was presumably established at the outset of the supervisory relationship.

It can be very easy for a client to misunderstand touch, interpreting it in a sexual context and, before the psychotherapist knows it, they have allegations of serious malpractice filed against them. The therapist might cease treating a client who has misunderstood the treatment and romanticised the relationship but the problems may not end there. A ‘scorned’ client is likely to turn bitter and may complain to the professional body, sue or harass the therapist. Harassment can be very unpleasant, if clients, seeking to become involved in a counsellor’s life, make numerous phone calls or begin stalking.

The first and most obvious one is that of actually receiving payment. If the therapist does not have a written express agreement with the client then there is always scope for the latter to argue about how much has actually been agreed to be paid or stating that the service has been provided as a favour. The simplest way of keeping track of costs is to ensure that each individual consultation is paid for immediately after the consultation. If someone’s cheque bounces or they do not pay, then they do not have another consultation and the therapist writes off the cost of one session.
