Confidentiality

Your psychologist will not disclose information to anyone else outside of the clinic (apart from his or her supervisor, who is also a clinical psychologist and bound by strict confidentiality guidelines) unless this is agreed with the child and parents. The exception to this rule is if we are worried about the safety of a child or others, and you would always be informed about this.

If you have been referred to us by another professional such as a GP or psychiatrist, we will ask you if we can write to them after your first appointment and periodically after this, to inform them of progress. You will receive copies of any correspondence.
