We understand the need for you to trust a counsellor you need to have absolute discretion.

The contents of each session are kept strictly confidential with the following exceptions:

  • As a requirement of supervision (this is required of all counsellors to ensure work maintains high standards) care will be taken to preserve client confidentiality.
  • Where as a client you give consent for the confidence to be broken.
  • Where we feel it is appropriate to consult with, or involve other professionals such as your GP in circumstances where there is a risk of harm to you or to a third party. In such cases we will aim to discuss any action with you first and seek to gain your co-operation.
  • Where in extreme cases we are legally compelled by a court of law.
  • Where statutory law requires us to inform the relevant authorities (such as terrorist activities, drug trafficking or abuse of a child or vulnerable adult).

If you would like any more information about our confidentiality policy then please feel free to email us.

Please email with any questions and if you’d like to make an appointment.
