The contact details you’ve been asked to provide (yours, an emergency contact, and your GP) is held securely and is confidential.
Although your work with us is confidential, this confidentiality has certain limits.
Your therapist may have to act, if they consider there is a substantial risk of you harming yourself, harming others or engaging in criminal activity. In that instance your therapist would endeavour to discuss this with you to obtain your consent. However, if this is not possible, they may contact your GP, your emergency contact or where necessary, an appropriate authority.
All therapists are required to be in regular supervision, which is a confidential process where therapists examine their work and their own process. It plays an important role in offering increased protection and effectiveness for clients and your therapist may take work with you, without identifying you, to their supervision.
Please talk to your therapist if you want more information on this or if you have any questions.
