Confidentiality and privacy is a fundamental aspect of counselling. Assurance of confidentiality helps create a trusting and respectful relationship. Your confidentiality is assured except in circumstances where your or someone else’s safety is at risk. As a member of the BACP (British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy) I follow strict guidelines of professional conduct and this includes the guidelines about confidentiality. I have been an Accredited BACP member since 2009.
