CONFIDENTIALITY

 

Everything you say will be treated in the strictest confidence with the following exceptions which are based on British Law:

 

1) If I am subpoenaed by a court

2) Self-harm. (I may need to contact your GP if it appears that you are suicidal or intend to carry out serious self-harm.

3) Abuse or injury to a Minor. (I am legally required to report abuse towards a minor to the appropriate authorities should you divulge any such information).

 

Standards of Behaviour

 

I undertake to treat you with respect and not to abuse the trust that you put in me. I will use best practice at all times in our mutual interest. In return, you will undertake not to harm yourself or any other person, including me, or any property belonging to me or any other person. You will agree not to come to the sessions under the influence of alcohol or recreational drugs, except those medications prescribed by your doctor. Should you come to the sessions under the influence of alcohol or recreational drugs, or should you demonstrate violent/abusive behaviour, I reserve the right to cancel the appointment and refuse any further therapy sessions with you.

 

In order to ensure continued best practice, I receive regular clinical supervision of my work with clients. During supervision, it may be necessary to review your treatment, but any reference that could allow you to be identified is removed.

 

Growing and maintaining my reputation as a successful hypnotherapist is extremely important to me. Although I make it clear from the first session that I cannot guarantee results, I would like all my clients to be completely satisfied.
