CONFIDENTIALITY

Counselling is a private and confidential form of help and all information shared before, during and after sessions is treated in the strictest of confidence.  There are rare exceptions when I may be legally or ethically bound to breach confidentiality and these are outlined in the

Client and Counsellor Working Agreement.

All counsellors are required to have regular and on-going formal supervision to support their counselling work.  Supervision is a professional standard and an ethical requirement of counselling.  Regular monitoring and reviewing of one’s work is essential to help maintain ethical and professional standards and encourages good practice and learning.  All information discussed during supervision is anonymised and is bound by confidentiality guidelines detailed in the Client and Counsellor Working Agreement.
