Is what I say in therapy confidential?

Confidentiality in Counselling and Psychotherapy Sessions

In your therapy sessions everything that you tell us is confidential and will not be disclosed to anyone without first asking for your permission. The only exception to this is in a few extremely risky situations where we are extremely concerned about personal safety. We discuss this with you in the first session (an example would be if a client reveals on-going abuse of children or intention to harm himself/herself or others) . Sometimes letting your GP know that you are working with us is helpful and we would discuss this with you if we felt this to be the case. Except for this, all of the material that you disclose to us is confidential and will not be entered on your medical records.
