Code of Ethics and Practice: Information for clients

You can expect your therapist to be appropriately trained, to keep up to date, and to have their style of therapy regularly supervised. If your therapist is part of a team working with you, relationships in that team should be strictly professional and any trainee members should only be given tasks suitable to their level of training.

Your therapist should be open and honest about these matters, and about all aspects of his or her relationship with you including any financial arrangements. She or he should not take advantage of contact with you in any way for sexual/political, religious or other reasons. You should not be discriminated against in any way e.g. because of race or gender.

All material and information passing between clients and therapist is confidential. Records of the therapy sessions should be held safely and confidentially, and sessions videotaped only with your signed permission, and kept for a named period and purpose only. Therapists should inform their clients that circumstances may arise when it is a matter of public or professional duty to break confidentiality. Situations involving self-harm or actual or potential risk of harm to family members or others would constitute such circumstances.

It is often helpful for your therapist to link with other professionals involved with you or your family, but your permission is needed for this to happen. It is only in exceptional circumstances that others will be contacted without your permission.
