Confidentiality is hugely important to us and all discussions in counselling and psychotherapy are confidential. There are some ethical and legal exceptions to this, and these will be explained to you at your initial consultation. Alternatively, there is a brief explanation of these in the counselling contract which is to the right of this page for your viewing.
We are fully registered members of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP), a professional body that guides our practice and professional codes of conduct.
All client records are protected by the Data Protection Act, 1998. This means that no information is shared with a third party. Exceptions to this policy may only occur where it is necessary to ensure the safety of clients or others.
Clients will not be contacted on any telephone numbers or at any address if you explicitly ask us not to do so.
We take confidentiality very seriously and are committed to adhering to the published code of professional ethics. If you wish to learn more about the BACP and their ethical framework which we work within, please click on the arrow below.
