My Approach

Confidentiality

I adhere to a strict code of professional ethics under the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) Ethical Guidelines and the College of Sexual and Relationship Therapists (COSRT) Code of Ethics and Practice. Confidentiality is an important part of these standards - you need to and should feel comfortable and protected discussing personal issues. I would not disclose information about you to a third party without your permission, except in situations where there was a serious worry about harm coming to you or someone else - I would endeavour to talk with you about this beforehand during our session. As your contact details are also private, I am registered with the Information Commissioner's Office under the Data Protection Act. 

If a couple is being seen together, I will assume that information can and will be shared between you. If you have any questions about confidentiality, please feel free to discuss them with me during our session.
