Confidentiality

 

Whatever you and I speak about during our sessions is completely confidential.  I never provide your information to anyone else.  I will write some notes during therapy and these notes will be attached to your client record, which I do not provide to anyone else, however you may request copies of these notes.

 

Limits to confidentiality

 

I adhere to the Australian Psychological Society Code of Ethics.  If you tell me that you are thinking of hurting yourself or someone else, I have a duty of care to keep you and others safe.  This might mean I have to break confidentiality to maintain my duty of care.

 

If courts subpoena my records, I must comply.  If this ever happens, I will contact you to discuss what records they have requested, and will also provide you with a copy if required.

 

Your GP – if you have been referred by your GP, I am required to report back to your GP on your progress.  After six sessions, if you require additional sessions, I will report back to your GP for approval for another four sessions.
