Confidentiality is a cornerstone of the counselling profession. Whatever you share stays between you and me. However, I am legally and ethically required to break confidentiality in the following situations:

You are going to act on plans to seriously hurt others or harm yourself,

Situations involving child abuse and dependent adult abuse,

If you report past or ongoing sexual abuse by any health professional people (e.g., another clinical counsellor, psychologist, medical doctor, nurse, dentist, chiropractor), and

A subpoena by the court.
