Information on disclosure and your privacy
Your counsellor, Anita Balogh, at Swan Counselling will document information relevant to your ongoing treatment. Your information and all your personal details are handled with utmost confidentiality. To safeguard your privacy no identifiable details are recorded during therapy. All information collected are appropriately secured from unauthorised access.
Information concerning your counselling is only available to other health or helping professionals with your written consent and understanding as to why that would be helpful to you.
Exceptions to this would be:
- in case a subpoena is received from a court of law;
- you express an intent to harm yourself or somebody else;
- you disclose you have committed a crime;
- a child is considered to be at risk of harm.
In order for you to receive the best treatment, your counsellor may need to review the progress of your treatment with her supervisor. This will be done to ensure your continuous privacy and respecting the confidentiality of all information gathered. Hence no identifiable personal information will be disclosed in these instances
