Confidentiality

In order for any client to gain the most from their therapy, it is important that their sessions are confidential.

 

In the case of young people , if Robyn has any contact with a parent/guardian once therapy has started, this will be shared with the young person. The content of sessions will not be discussed without the young person’s consent in order to protect their confidentiality.  

 

If a young person tells Robyn something that she thinks a parent/guardian needs to be informed of, she will think about this with the client and how they will tell the parent/guardian.

 

If Robyn thinks an adult or young person is at serious risk of being harmed then she will need to inform other professionals.  This will also apply if a disclosure is made where she knows that someone else is at serious risk.
