As a counsellor I hold a professional qualification in Counselling Couples, with counselling experience within a number of areas and theories and work to the highest ethical standards.
I will respect your privacy and culture at all times. The services I provide are confidential and there is no discrimination on the basis of race, religion, physical disability, gender or sexual orientation.
My aim is to work in partnership with clients. You are the expert on your life whilst I have the skills that will help you to lead a more satisfactory and resourceful life.
Your communications will remain confidential between us, kept in a locked cabinet.
An exception to privacy is where as your counsellor I need to take some of the issues to supervision, to ensure that I am counselling in a way that is safe and beneficial to my clients, as required by my professional code. I will not reveal your identity, and will take all precautions to protect your privacy.
The only circumstance where as a counsellor I am obliged to break confidentiality is if you have indicated that there is a risk of harm to yourself or someone else, and I am required by ethics to seek advice and guidance from other professionals. I would of course try to discuss this beforehand with you to obtain your assent.
You may ask to see my written records at any time. Any personal data retained is kept in accordance with the Data Protection Act 1998 and I am a registered Data Controller.
I do not follow just one model of working, but build in a number of different approaches.
The approach that I use may be described as 'integrative'. In other words, I do not follow just one model of working, but build in a number of different approaches. It's base is mainly psychodynamic but including person-centred, TA, problem solving, cognitive behavioural, and solution focused methods. This means that I am able to tailor my approach to the different needs of individuals. Online work captures all of the above with the added advantage that what you think and feel can be put down on "paper", either using email exchanges of with the immediacy of chat. By freeing those thoughts they can be explored and dissipated.
I am active on Social Media and have devised this policy to clearly set out to my clients how I operate ethically and professionally on public sites.
Social Media Policy
I am active on Social Media and have devised this policy to clearly set out to my clients how I operate ethically and professionally on public sites. The policy is also to protect my client’s privacy and confidentiality, and our therapeutic relationship. If you have any questions about this policy then feel free to ask them in our session together or via email.
Social media plays a part in most peoples’ lives - Facebook, LinkedIn, Google+, Instagram to name a few. I engage in social media and I imagine many of my clients and supervisees do too, so the possibility of our digital lives overlapping outside of the consulting room increases.
I keep a Facebook page, Twitter account and LinkedIn page for professional purposes. You are welcome to look at these and make comments. I use these pages to share inspirational quotes, and any helpful articles on mental health issues. You are welcome to follow or even ‘like’ but I will not engage in any counselling or help via these pages. Please do bear in mind that comments could compromise your confidentiality that you are seeing me as a client or it may impact our therapeutic relationship.
I will not accept friends or contact requests from any client or colleagues on my personal Facebook account. This page is private and for friends and family only.
If you do share anything on Twitter then remember retweeting can, just like Facebook, compromise your confidentially or our working alliance. I will not offer any personal help or support through twitter.
LinkedIn. This is my professional profile. You are welcome to look at it and share any helpful information that feels appropriate.
Google + and Advertising Sites
You may have found out about me on sites such as Google+, Counselling Directory or other places that list businesses. Some of these sites allow users to add a review. If you have found me via these sites you are not obliged to rate or endorse me as a client. You do have the right to comment on these sites. Remember these sites are public forums and sharing any information could reveal who you are. To protect your privacy it is best to use another email address. If you do have any issues that are troubling you then it is best you bring it to our sessions together as this can be an important part of our therapy.
