CONFIDENTIALITY!  What Does It Mean At Delview?

 

Confidentiality is keeping discussions and information private between the counsellor and the client, in most cases this would be the student.

 

Confidentiality is taken very seriously at Delview.  If you have concerns about confidentiality please discuss them immediately with your counsellor.

 

Confidentiality will be maintained at all times except for the following three exceptions:

ØYou are going to hurt themself.

ØYou are going to hurt someone else.

ØYou have been hurt by someone else.

 

If any of the above situations arise the counselor will discuss the options available to you in regards to staying safe.  Your counsellor will always tell you if confidentiality cannot be maintained.


 

If you are looking for support, acceptance, empathy and information come to the counseling centre and introduce yourself to us.
