Confidentiality And Privacy
All discussions that take place in your therapy sessions are treated as confidential with the following exceptions.
We are required to seek supervision by our professional body (BABCP, Nursing and Midwifery Council, ) as a means of ensuring good practice. This means that your case will be discussed with our clinical supervisor. This person is however, also bound by the same strict code of conduct regarding confidentiality as we are.
We will usually inform your referrer of your progress if this is requested, but the details that we disclose will be discussed with you. We do have a statutory obligation to break confidentiality under rare circumstances, namely, if we believe that a client is of danger to themselves or to others (under the Mental Health Act, 2001) or if we believe that a child is at actual risk of physical or sexual abuse (The Children Act, Section 47, 1989).
