What does confidentiality mean?

Confidentiality means that anything you discuss with your counsellor will not be revealed to anyone else without your specific consent.  All counsellors are supervised, this is a requirement of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) to ensure competent and ethical practice, but we discuss cases and not people.  On very rare occasions, it may not be possible to keep confidentiality, specifically:
  • Where you give consent for the confidence to be broken.
  • Where compelled by a court of law.
  • Where you are believed to be a danger to yourself or where another person is believed to be at risk (this would not normally happen without first being discussed with you).
        

How many sessions will I need?

The number of counselling sessions depends on you as an individual. At your initial assessment we will decide whether you would be most likely to benefit from a short term solution focussed approach or a longer term, open ended approach. Therapy may be something you choose to engage with for just a few weeks or months, or perhaps, for a much longer period of time.
