Whatever someone talks about in counselling is confidential.

If I am worried that someone might be at risk of serious harm, I would ask them to consider that together we seek external help to deal with their situation.
Occasionally a counsellor has to break confidentiality to protect a client or another person who is in danger, but this is extremely rare.

All counsellors work with a clinical supervisor for input and guidance on their work.
The counsellor does not share the client’s name with the supervisor, so their identity is protected.

All counselling notes are kept in a locked cabinet which no one else has access to.
In addition client contact details are filed separately from counselling notes, so that the person cannot be identified.
