As accredited therapists we have a professional duty of care to all clients and take confidentiality very seriously. We will not disclose any verbal or written information without your signed permission.
However, in very rare and exceptional circumstances BACP accredited counsellors reserve the right to break confidentiality if:
- It appears that you are at serious and imminent risk to your own or to others safety
- If we are made aware of any serious illegal activities
- Where there is a legal obligation to disclose information
Even in these circumstances we would normally seek to discuss this with you in the first instance before contacting anyone else.
