Confidentiality and consent
In working together, I am privileged to your sensitive, health-related information. I hold this information confidentially and would only break this confidentiality under certain limited circumstances. These would be if I were asked to disclose information by a court of law, or in order to protect you or another person from harm. In those contexts, I would always seek your explicit consent first.
I keep brief anonymised notes of our sessions, which do not include your name or any other identifying data. I may discuss my work with you with my clinical supervisor from time to time, to ensure I am working appropriately. Again, I will not disclose your name, or any other identifying data to my supervisor or to any other person or colleague, unless there were a need to break confidentiality, as described above.
