How confidential is my session with you?
Your privacy will be respected and any information you provide us will be treated as confidential. Any notes will be kept in a secure location and viewed only by your therapist. Exceptions to this would arise:
If your therapist considers that certain information needs to be disclosed to protect yourself or others from serious harm.
When a therapist discusses a case in supervision. Your details are kept anonymous so that you cannot be identified.
Communication with your doctor – As there are sometimes situations where a referral is recommended, your therapist will discuss with you whether or not you consent to them having communication with a doctor or another professional, and the scope of disclosure. It is required for you to sign a consent form to indicate you give your consent for such communication.
How many therapy sessions will I need?
The length of therapy varies depending on individual/couple or family needs and this will be discussed with you. Therapy may be short-term (3-6 sessions) or longer term (12+).
