Is Counselling Confidential?

All personal information is treated in the strictest confidence and remains confidential to the counsellor. This is crucial for you to feel able to trust the process, knowing that it is safe to talk openly about what is happening. This strict confidentiality rule would only be broken, in most cases with your consent, should exceptional circumstances arise where you might be in danger of serious harm to yourself or others. This policy is in accordance with the code of ethics of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy BACP.
