You will be dealing with highly trained and skilled professionals, whether clinical or administrative staff, who will keep your confidence and work hard to maintain your trust. Confidence and trust are essential to the process of therapy, and we are ethically and professionally bound by these key principles.
Discussions with your therapist and any notes they write will not be disclosed to any other person without your consent. Exceptions to this would be if your therapist is required to disclose information by a court of law, or in order to protect you or another person from significant harm. If your physical or mental health deteriorates to a point of serious concern or your psychologist believes that you are a significant risk to yourself or others then they may, without your consent, contact your GP or psychiatrist, or the emergency services.
