Confidentiality is a central and integral part of the counselling process and is assured to each client who avails of counselling . I aim to provide a comprehensive and skilled counselling and psychotherapy service, committed to the highest degree of integrity, confidentiality, ethical practice and care for clients. A policy of confidentiality ensures that any individual attending counselling can freely discuss the most sensitive of issues in a protective and caring environment, safe in the knowledge that his or her identity and issues will not be divulged.
Limits to Confidentiality
In exceptional circumstances counsellors may need to break confidentiality if they believe there is a real intent of serious harm or danger to a person under 18 years old, their client or another individual. Such circumstances may pertain to issues relating to sexual abuse, rape, self-harm, suicidal ideation or criminal activity.
In as far as is possible, in such cases, a full explanation will be given regarding the necessary procedures that may need to be taken.
Supervision & Training
All therapists receive ongoing professional supervision and continuous training in counselling & psychotherapy. This ensures the service you receive is of the highest standard.
