I work within the BACP's ethical framework. I'm also registered with the ICO.
I keep brief, anonymised notes of our sessions. I'll not share any of the information we discuss with a third party except for the purposes of clinical supervision when I'll do my utmost to protect your anonymity.
However, please note that I cannot guarantee you complete confidentiality with regards to financial information if you request to be invoiced and where payments are made by bank transfer or cheque.
In some extreme situations, were I thought that either you or someone else was in danger, I’d have a legal, moral and ethical duty to disclose my concerns to the appropriate agency (eg your GP, Social Services or the police). Should this be necessary I’ll inform you of what I intend to do beforehand.
