What you tell me, stays between us

The therapy sessions I offer are confidential, in accordance with the ethical standards set out by the British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP).

There are a small number of potential exceptions to full confidentiality, which are stated below. Breaching confidentially is extremely rare and would only occur after proper and due consideration and discussion where possible.

Exceptions to confidentiality

Risk or harm

If a client poses a risk of harm to themselves or others.

Money laundering

If a client states they are laundering money from the sale of drugs.

Court Order

On receipt of a court order requiring information to be provided.


Should information be given regarding acts of terrorism.

Child abuse

If a child is being abused or is in danger of abuse.

As a requirement of the BACP, and my commitment to improving my practice, I undertake clinical supervision with a qualified supervisor. The supervisor is an experienced fellow therapist. On occasion I may review sessions, whilst maintaining client anonymity. My supervisor is also bound to keep any such material confidential.

These exceptions are designed to provide clients with peace of mind and a safe therapeutic environment.
