Confidentiality

All my therapy sessions are strictly confidential, in line with ethical standards required by the BABCP and BACP professional bodies of which I am an accredited member. With the exceptions below, I will not disclose anything discussed in our sessions without your express written permission.

The only exceptions to total confidentiality are:

(a) To improve my service to you, I may need to review our sessions with my professional Supervisor, while maintaining your anonymity. He or she is in turn bound to keep any such material confidential.

(b) If you tell me something that I believe poses a danger to yourself or others, I reserve the right to contact an appropriate professional, but not without first discussing this with you.

These exceptions are designed to give you the best possible standards of treatment and protection, and I will discuss them fully with you before any course of therapy begins.
