CONFIDENTIALITY: All sessions will be conducted in confidence. Our first responsibility is to honor our confidential relationship; we need to trust each other. Therefore, specific information will not be shared with your parents or others, unless you give me specific permission to do so. We may however, share generalities with your parents and offer helpful guidance to your parents and other supportive persons. We are responsible to break this confidentiality when physical, sexual, emotional and psychological safety is a concern.
CANCELLATIONS: Life happens, and we understand that. We ask you to cancel appointments with 24- hour notice to avoid being charged for a missed session.
CONTINUITY: Continuity of sessions is important. Let’s say you have agreed to weekly sessions. It would be disruptive to suddenly change this; if, however you find that you are wanting to make a change to the arrangements then you need to discuss this with me.
