Counselling in Wokingham – Confidentiality

Paul Cockayne – 07791 970406 – paulcockayne3@gmail.com
This blog is intended to give you a flavour of how I work as a counsellor. You can find more information about me by clicking one of the links above.

Confidentiality is an essential part of counselling and I always reassure clients that any information they give me is confidential except in the unlikely event that I am told something that represents a danger to someone else. (This has never happened to me, by the way!)

In couple counselling, confidentiality can be slightly complicated if either of the couple attends a session alone – which is something that can sometimes be useful, or can just happen by chance. In this case, the content of that session will be confidential between myself and whoever attended – I would not reveal anything to your partner. This is important to allow you to be open and honest with me as your counsellor, and while in general I would encourage you to be equally honest with your partner, it would be your choice what you told them, not mine.
