Yes, as a Registered Clinical Counsellor I am required to keep everything that is discussed in counselling in the strictest of confidence, unless you give me voluntary written consent to do otherwise. There are 3 exceptions to this rule:
- If your counsellor feels that you are a serious danger to yourself or others.
- If your counsellor, or your counselling file is officially subpoenaed in a court case.
- If there is information shared about current child or elder abuse.
