The law protects the relationships between a client and a therapist, and information cannot be disclosed without written permission. When services are requested by a third party and a report is requested we will discuss the privacy and confidentiality issues associated with this.
Sometimes there are exceptions to confidentiality and privacy, these include:
- Suspected child abuse or dependent adult or elder abuse, for which I am required by law to report to the appropriate authorities immediately;
- If a client is threatening serious bodily harm to another person/s, I must notify the police and inform the intended victim;
- If a client intends to harm him or herself, I 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.
