In reading your question, I am drawn to your ethical, self-reflective position. So often people seem to underestimate the maturity and experience required to work independently. I am also an ATR-BC (with 14 years experience), and have only seriously begun to focus on private work in the last few years. I don't think I had the life experience necessary before now. Everyone has their own time frame. What do others think?
I personally don't feel that being enrolled in a PhD program is the only way to ensure that you are growing professionally. Your desire to secure supervision seems like a reasonable approach, and I'm sure you will be taking seminars and workshops along the way as well to expand your skills. I have also found that teaching and supervising were profound in their effect on my work.
