Keeping our work safe

The content of our work together is confidential, within these exceptions:

The first is that all the counsellors in the UK are in regular confidential supervision, where we discuss our work to ensure that we are working in the most effective way to enable our clients to reach their goals. 

Secondly, if I believe that you are at risk, or putting others at risk, I might need to break confidentiality. Some UK laws in some circumstances require me to break confidentiality, such as the Terrorism Act, The Children Act, Proceeds of crime and Road Traffic Act.

In most cases I would endeavour to notify you of this first, although there are occasionally legal reasons why this might not be possible.
