Confidentiality.

Confidentiality is maintained and information that you share with me will not be disclosed without your written consent. My work is supervised in accordance with the guidelines given by my professional body, the British Psychoanalytical Council (BPC). The only exceptions to keeping confidentiality could be where there is a risk of harm to self or others and requirements of law. In such circumstances I shall make every effort to talk to you about this first.

Digital & Remote Working policy.

I endeavour to keep myself updated on current thought and research into the impact of technology and the Internet, and my engagement with technology and online activity may change as my thoughts and ideas continue to develop. If you decide to work with me, I ask that you read my current digital policy, a copy of which you can download below:
