WE UNDERSTAND COMPLETELY THE IMPORTANCE OF PRIVACY.

Very often matters can come up which are deeply personal and sensitive, and these are often issues which are central to the problem being addressed.

All of our contacts will be entirely confidential, subject to this one single exclusion......you disclose to us that you intend to harm yourself or any other person(s).

Some people wish to have their sessions recorded on DVD, and we can do this, but you must sign a form to indicate you want this. It allows you to view and re-view your own sessions at home, and of course, you can share it with a family member or friend if you like. Research shows that by using this method, therapeutic outcomes are enhanced, because both client and therapist have the benefit of hindsight in forthcoming sessions.

All information / records (both paper and electronic) are stored securely.

In some instances, you may want us to contact someone on your behalf (eg. speak to your doctor about your medicines etc). Again, we can only do this if you give us written permission.

WE TAKE CONFIDENTILITY VERY SERIOUSLY; WE WILL ONLY EVER DISCUSS YOUR BUSINESS WITH SOMEONE ELSE IF YOU GIVE US YOUR PERMISSION IN WRITING.
