Confidentiality

Counselling is always confidential, and this is an important part of the contract between client and counsellor, making it safe for the client. There are some exceptions, which allow the counsellor to work responsibly.

Counsellors always discuss clients regularly with a supervisor (an experienced counsellor or psychotherapist), who also has to maintain confidentiality.

Supervision is an essential part of the work and, indeed, itís seen as unethical for a counsellor to work without it.
