I will provide the highest level of confidentiality possible according to the law and the Codes of Ethics of BACP However some situations could result in disclosure and these are as follows:
• If you are considered to be a serious risk to yourself or to other people, then further professional advice could be beneficial.
• Any illegal activities and acts of terrorism, where not to disclose would break the law.
• Any child protection issues where a child could be at risk of harm or neglect must be reported to the appropriate authorities as required by The Children Act 1989
Depending on the particular circumstances, I would always aim to discuss this with you before taking any action wherever possible. We would discuss who to speak with ie; GP, friend, family member or my supervisor.
