I am a member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapists (BACP). I follow and adhere to their codes of good practice and the Ethical Framework for the Counselling Professions.
As part of the BACPs guidelines, I am also required to have supervision, with a qualified counselling supervisor. This promotes quality and standards of practice within the industry. Anything I discuss with them will be anonymized. Additionally, it will also be held with the same high standards of confidentiality and data protection by my supervisor.
Our work together will be confidential. I will not share any information about you, unless however, it is my responsibility to inform your G.P. or other professional, in cases such as:
Ø If you, or someone else, are at risk.
Ø In legal cases
Ø Drug trafficking
Ø Money Laundering
All of your data and information will be stored as per the General Data Protection Regulations. This means either under lock and key, or securely protected electronically.
