Privacy Policy

It is important for individuals seeking counseling or therapy to be aware of the privacy policies of the counseling service they are using.

Counseling and therapy sessions are typically considered to be confidential, which means that the information discussed during these sessions is not shared with anyone outside of the therapeutic relationship without the explicit consent of the client.

However, there are some exceptions to this rule. For example, if a therapist believes that a client is at risk of harming themselves or others, or if there is suspicion of child abuse or elder abuse, the therapist may be required by law to report this information to the appropriate authorities.

It is also important to note that electronic communication, such as messaging with a therapist through a secure online platform, may not be completely secure and could potentially be accessed by unauthorised parties. It is always a good idea to discuss any concerns about confidentiality with a therapist before beginning treatment.
