Confidentiality & Privacy



We are bound by professional codes of conduct stipulated by the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC) and (for those registered) the British Psychological Society (BPS). You can find out more about these here: HCP  BPS

Everything discussed in sessions is confidential between you and your therapist. However there are some limits to confidentiality;
 
  • if you give information to suggest that you or someone else is at risk of harm. In these circumstances your therapist may be obliged to break the bounds of confidentiality and pass on information to a third party but this would be discussed prior to any action being taken if at all possible.
  • if ordered to do so by a court or the police.
  • during our own clinical supervision each therapist discusses their work with their supervisor. Supervision is a professional requirement in order to maintain registration to practice and to ensure the quality of therapy provided. 

If you ask for any information to be passed on to a third party, for example a report for an insurance claim or letter to your GP, we would need your permission in writing to do this.

 All of our therapists are registered with the Information Commissioner’s Office and comply with the Data Protection Act 1998 and the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) 2016 to keep your information safe. You can find out more about the Data Protection Act here and the GDPR here. You can access our privacy policy here.
