Confidentiality Policy

The standards of practice for a Certified Counsellor places a high value on confidentiality. In line with these standards, strict maintenance of the confidentiality of all notes, records, and other information is kept by having your file accessible only to myself. Persons outside of the office are not allowed access to the fact that you are seeking counselling without your written consent. Similarly, I will not discuss issues relating to another client known to you without written consent.

When working with couples and families, in the interests of therapeutic rapport and trust, information given to myself by individuals will not be disclosed to others. Participating members will be encouraged to share thoughts and feelings with each other and I will support that process. Participating individuals can also ask me to share information with another family member or request anyone they wish to attend a session with them.
