Committed to Confidentiality
Confidentiality is hugely important and all discussions in counselling are confidential. The only time I might break confidentiality is if there is a serious risk of harm to you or others, and in very rare cases where required by law. I am a fully registered member of the BACP (British Association of counselling and psychotherapy a professional body that guides our practice and professional code of conduct.
All client records are protected by the data protection Act 1998. This means that no information is shared with a third party. Exception to this policy may only occur where it is necessary to ensure the safety of client’s or others.
