Please take the time to read my Confidentiality Policy.

Confidentiality Policy

The content of your therapy sessions and communication with you via emails, text or phone calls will be kept confidential. 

However, there are some exceptions to confidentiality for you to be aware of:

  • Where you request or give consent for confidence to be broken.
  • Where I am compelled to break confidentiality by a court of law.
  • I have a legal obligation to report harm or potential harm or abuse of a minor or vulnerable adult.
  • In adherence with the UKCP ethical code, I am obliged to break confidentiality if you disclose involvement in, or knowledges an act of terrorism, money laundering or drugs trafficking.
  • In addition, I may also report to the relevant authorities’ instances of serious threatened or actual harm to self or harm to others, to include current or potential abuse/harm to children, vulnerable adults, and animals.
  • It is a professional requirement for me to undertake regular clinical supervision and client cases are discussed. Identifying information such as your full name will not be used. Clinical Supervisors are also bound by confidentiality.
  • Confirmation of attendance to therapy (e.g., to employers, health professionals or members of the family) will not be given without your consent.
  • An exception to confidentiality may also be made if you are unwell or require GP or emergency support during a therapy session, when the GP or emergency services may (on rare occasions such as loss of consciousness or shortness of breath) be contacted.
  • As I aim to offer confidentiality regarding the content of our sessions, I would ask that you do the same by not sharing any of the content of our sessions with any third party.

Thank you for taking the time to read my Confidentiality Policy. If you have questions or concerns about this policy, please feel free to raise them in our sessions.

Changes to this policy may occur. If substantial changes are made you will be notified directly in writing.
