Confidentiality

The law protects the relationship between a client and a psychologist, and information cannot be disclosed without written permission.

Exceptions include:

  • I am required by law to report suspected child abuse and dependent adult / elder abuse to the appropriate authorities immediately.
  • If a client is threatening serious bodily harm to another person/s, I must notify the police and inform the intended victim.
  • If a client intends to harm himself or herself, I will make every effort to enlist their cooperation in ensuring their safety. If they do not cooperate, I will take further measures, as provided to me by law, in order to ensure their safety.
