Confidentiality

I don’t share information from or about you, unless I think that someone is at risk of serious harm.  In this instance, I would seek to discuss it with you first.

 

I work with a supervisor, and they quality control my work.  I discuss my anonymised case work with them.  They make sure I am working ethically and effectively, in your best interests.  They never know your name, or any details that would allow them to identify you.  

 

All reputable counsellors and therapists work with a supervisor, and this will be enshrined in the code of ethics and practice published by their accrediting body.  

 

I will email you a 'statement of understanding' before your first appointment which gives you more information.
