What will I do with the the information that you share with me as a therapist ?

The problems, issues and dilemmas that you share with your Counsellor at Simply Therapy is of the utmost confidence and private in nature and stays in the counselling room. An important thing about counselling is that it is confidential . The only time confidentiality will be breached is when you are threatening to harm to yourself and others and we need to ensure yours and their safety which is paramount. Then we at evolve will talk to you first about it and then talk to someone else if you or  are in danger of committing serious harm to yourself or another.
