Limits of Confidentiality

The Limits of Confidentiality

The law protects the relationship between a client and therapist and information cannot be disclosed without written permission.

Exceptions include: Suspected child abuse or dependant adult or elder abuse, for which we are required by law to report this to the appropriate authorities immediately.


  • If a client is threatening serious bodily harm to another person/s, We must notify the police and inform the intended victim.
  • If a client intends to harm himself or herself, We will make every effort to enlist their cooperation in ensuring their safety. If they do not cooperate, I will take further measures without their permission that are provided to me by law in order to ensure their safety.
