My Commitments to You.

*To abide by the Ethical Framework of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy for Good Practice, including meeting my requirements for regular, professional supervision.

*To maintain confidentiality about the content of our sessions, according to professional guidelines. This may include discussing aspects of our work in clinical supervision. If circumstances arise where I have serious concerns about risk of harm to you or someone else, I will seek to discuss this with you before informing my supervisor, your GP, or any other relevant authority, where I am legally obliged to disclose. The only other exception would be if I were required to give evidence in court under oath.

*To advise you as quickly as possible of any planned breaks I might take, or occasions where I might need to cancel sessions.
