My confidentiality policy and disclaimer

In order for therapy to be successful you need to openly talk about your problems, hopes, dreams, fantasies, fears etc.

It is normal to be concerned about the confidentiality of this information. Your privacy and confidentially are assured.

This means that a therapist cannot divulge any information about you or what you have talked with them about to anyone unless you have first given them signed permission to do so. Psychotherapists are required to keep all information confidential unless they have good reason to believe that a person’s life is in danger, a child is being sexually or physically abused, or they receive a court order for information pertaining to a case for trial.

If you decide to use your health insurance to pay for therapy, be aware that your insurance company and, in some cases, your employer, will now have access to information about your mental health. Therapists are required to provide information so that individuals can receive benefits and this typically involves making a diagnosis from the DSM V (Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders) and giving treatment information. Some people choose to pay for therapy themselves so that their mental health treatment will not become a matter of record.

Cookie Policy

The Privacy and Electronic Communications (EC Directive) Regulations 2003 (the Regulations) cover the use of cookies and similar technologies for storing information, and accessing information stored, on a user’s equipment such as their computer or mobile.

A cookie is a small file, typically of letters and numbers, downloaded on to a device when the user accesses certain websites. Cookies are then sent back to originating website on each subsequent visit. Cookies are useful because they allow a website to recognise a user’s device. The Regulations apply to cookies and also to similar technologies for storing information. This could include, for example, Local Shared Objects.

The use of cookies and similar technologies has for some time been commonplace and cookies in particular are important in the provision of many online services. Using such technologies is not, therefore, prohibited by the Regulations but they do require that people are told about cookies and given the choice as to which of their online activities are monitored in this way.

This website does not collect or store any of your personal information.
