The service I offer is entirely confidential. It is against my ethical code of conduct to discuss you or your details in any way with another person. There are only two exceptions to this:
Professional Supervision– I have regular supervision with another clinical psychologist, as required in my code of conduct. I will discuss clients in these supervision sessions in order for my supervisor to support the therapy offered and to ensure clients are receiving the best possible care. However, all supervision sessions are anonymous.
Risk– Should you disclose information to me that indicates you or another person are at risk of serious harm, I have a duty to disclose this information to a pertinent third party (e.g. parents or next of kin if you are a young person). However, I will never make any such disclosure without informing you in the first instance.
