This agreement covers the main things we will need to agree on before working together. Please read it so that you are clear about what to expect and so that we can talk through how we will work together. Please make sure you understand and are happy with these details.
All sessions will be confidential- this is a key part of the counselling process. If I think you are at risk of harming yourself or harming others, then I may need to widen confidentiality to get you the help and support that you need, or to comply with current legislation. Wherever possible I will talk with you first if I think this might be necessary.
Confidentiality only applies to the therapist: you can talk with anyone about your counselling. Please note that I discuss our work with a supervisor and sometimes supervision groups; this is for your benefit to make sure I am working ethically and is a mandatory professional requirement. Your identity will be protected during all supervision consultations. Pleased be assured any consultation is privy only to a small number of practitioners who are bound by the same code of ethics and professional practice as me.
