In all forms of psychotherapy the relationship between therapist and client is based on trust. In practice, this means that what the client says will be treated as confidential, although other health professional’s involved in treatment - your GP, for instance –may be informed of progress.

Very occasionally it may be necessary to inform other people of things you have discussed or disclosed in therapy; if, for example, the therapist considers the client or another person may be at risk of harm. If you would like this eventuality to be explained in more detail please ask.
