Our ethical responsibilities

Confidentiality
The counselling or coaching that we provide is confidential and we will always seek to protect the details of our work. The only circumstances in which we would consider breaching confidentiality are if there appears to be a genuine and immediate risk of serious harm to you or another person, or if required by the law. Should such an issue arise we would seek to discuss our concerns with you first. We would not make a decision to breach your confidence lightly. In the rare event of breaking confidentiality only those persons who absolutely need to know will be informed.

 

Record keeping
We do not keep any records of our coaching or counselling sessions.

 

Supervision
In line with the British Association of Counselling & Psychotherapy and International Coach Federation Code of Ethics we have regular and ongoing formal supervision of our work. The purpose of supervision is to enable us to ensure that we are meeting our ethical responsibilities as a counsellor or coach. Any aspect of our work that we take to supervision, we will present in a way that preserves anonymity and will be treated confidentially by both my supervisor and ourselves.
