Confidentiality

Between Counsellor and Client

What is shared in the session will be treated as confidential. It will not be discussed outside the sessions except in the context of professional supervision. Any such references will always be anonymous and you could not be identified through them. In very few extreme circumstances, it might be necessary for me to pass on information. This would only be if there was a substantial possibility of serious harm to yourself or others or if I were legally impelled to impart information. If I had concerns in this area, I would talk to you as fully as possible before deciding to take any action.

I aim to maintain the highest standards of good practice and safety. If you do have any concerns whatsoever in this regard, please do raise them with me. I am fully insured.

Please see the BACP website (www.bacp.co.uk) as it contains the ethical code I am compelled to work to as a professional counsellor/psychotherapist.
