I follow a code of ethics that are set out by the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP). These ethics ensure that all clients are receiving a service that is to a high standard and that I myself am following a framework which has the best interests of my clients at the centre of it. This includes putting my clients first, working to professional standards, upholding ethics, values, principles, and personal moral qualities, respect, building appropriate relationships, integrity, accountability and candour, adhering to supervisions, continuing with training and education and responding to ethical dilemmas and issues.
For a full and detailed breakdown of the BACP Ethical Framework, follow the link below and feel free to ask and questions you have to myself.
Confidentiality stands in each and every session whether they be face to face or over the phone. It is important for each client to feel safe in what they bring to each session and any confidentiality breaches are discussed at the beginning of the first session. It is completely up to each client what they bring to the sessions and what they choose to disclose.
