Confidentiality

Successful counselling depends on trust and trust requires confidentiality. You and I will work within a confidential relationship where anything that we talk about will remain between the two of us.

There are a few exceptions where confidentiality would need to be broken, for example, when I feel that you are at risk to yourself or to others or if there are issues around child protection. I will discuss the whole issue of confidentiality with you at the first session and we will make a confidentiality agreement together.

Sometimes you might ask me to speak to someone else about your progressing counselling. I can do this only with your written consent. Without it I will not even confirm that you are working with a counsellor.

All professional counsellors have a form of counselling themselves called Supervision. This is a confidential space to which I can take aspects of my work; this allows me to provide a continuous professional service to you. Your personal details will be strictly anonymous.
