Confidentiality Policy

Ensuring your confidentiality is extremely important to me. You can rest assured that anything you tell me will be kept confidential.
There are only a handful of exceptions to this.

1. Risk of harm to self or others
If I believe you are at risk of seriously harming yourself or someone else, it may be necessary for me to contact external agencies. In the majority of circumstances, I would discuss this with you so you would be aware of my duty to keep you and/or others safe and kept informed of any steps I was taking.

2. Legal Obligations
These include terrorism, drug and trafficking offences, child protection.

3. Supervision
To make sure you are receiving the best service, I see a clinical supervisor and discuss my workload, which includes anything you may share with me. My supervisor is bound by the same limits around confidentiality as I am.
