Important details

All sessions are confidential.

I will sometimes make notes after a session. These are my private notes and they will be kept in a secure place. Notes will be destroyed 1 year after counselling has finished.

I attend regular supervision sessions with a professional supervisor. Supervisors are trained to help and oversee a counsellors work. This is to ensure that any professional issues and personal difficulties I have are attended to. It also ensures that I am practising in a safe and ethical way. Supervisors are bound by the same confidentiality rules.

There are very rare occasions where I may need to discuss our sessions with someone else. This will always be discussed with you first.

This may happen in the following circumstances –

  • If I believe there to be a threat to your life, or that of someone else.
  • If ordered to do so by a court of law.

Stopping counselling

  • We will usually agree on a certain number of sessions and review the decision on a regular basis. However you can stop at any time.

Cancellation

I ask that my clients give me 24 hours notice if they need to cancel a session. If less notice is given you will be charged for the missed session unless there are extenuating circumstances.
