I will email you my GDPR privacy and confidentiality statement before we meet. Please read this and let me know that you are in agreement with it.
The trust between client and therapist is crucial to the success of the therapeutic process and I treat all information disclosed as confidential.
I receive regular supervision to ensure high therapeutic standards and best practice.
Any details my supervisor receives are also treated as confidential and we do not disclose client details to any third party without your permission.
However if in my opinion a client is a danger to themselves or to others, or there is a possibility a child might be at risk, I do reserve the right to inform appropriate agencies (usually your GP or other healthcare professional). It is my practice wherever possible to inform you first should confidentiality need to be breached.
I keep brief notes on our work together.
