Limited Confidentiality

Client consent to treatment and confidentiality

Everything we discuss in our sessions together is confidential except:

  • If it is subpoenaed by a court
  • Failure to disclose the information would place you or another person at risk
  • Your prior approval has been obtained to:
  • Provide a written report to your GP
  • Discuss the material with another person, eg parent.
  • In any of these situations, the minimum necessary information will be disclosed and, if possible, this will be discussed with you in advance.
