I will be taking personal information in our initial session such as your name, telephone number and email address. Further personal information will be taken to ensure your safety in case of an emergency. This will discussed further in our initial session together. 

This counselling service is confidential, meaning everything you disclose will be kept private. However, there are rare occasions in which confidentiality will be broken. This would be if I have concerns for your safety; the safety of a child or vulnerable adult; any acts/knowledge of money laundering, terrorism, drug trafficking. 

I will be making notes on our sessions together in order to monitor your progress, but these notes will be kept annonymised and in a locked cabinet that only I have access to.
