Is therapy confidential?

The law protects the relationship between a client and a psychotherapist, and information
cannot be disclosed without written permission from the client. However, there are exceptions to this rule.

Exceptions include:

  • Suspected child abuse or dependent adult or elder abuse, for which Welcoming Wellness Counseling is required by law to report to the appropriate authorities immediately.
  • If a client is threatening serious bodily harm to another person/s. Welcoming Wellness Counseling is required by law to notify the police and inform the intended victim.
  • If a client intends to harm himself or herself. Welcoming Wellness Counseling will make every effort to enlist the client’s cooperation in ensuring their safety. If the client does not cooperate, Welcoming Wellness Counseling will take further measures without their permission, that are provided to me by law, in order to ensure their safety.
