Ethics

What you say to me is private and confidential, it is between us. But all psychotherapists have to receive professional support and advice (usually called ‘supervision’ or ‘clinical supervision’) from other, experienced, therapists (our supervisors). This helps me to work with you better and, whilst I might discuss your therapy, I will not reveal any details that might identify you. The only other exception to this total confidentiality is if I thought you were in serious danger of harming yourself or others.

I follow the ethical guidelines of UK Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP) and of the Metanoia Institute, where I trained, in my practice. Metanoia’s code of ethics can be found in the Codes and Procedures Handbook for Metanoia Members.
