In general, information that I have about you will not be released to anyone, unless you give me your consent to do so. That said, there are some legal/ethical exceptions to this confidentiality that counsellors are obligated to comply with, and I think it’s important that you are aware, so I crated this tab.
In rare circumstances, counsellors have an ethical/legal duty to share information with entities or people such as the Alberta Child Abuse Hotline, a client’s family doctor, the police, etc. For example, if based on what a client says, I have reason to be reasonably concerned about risk of serious bodily harm to a client or someone else, I might need to disclose this. Or, if there is reasonable suspicion of child abuse — physical, sexual, emotional, neglect — I might need to make a disclosure.
I will explain exceptions to confidentiality to you when we speak and you are welcome to ask any questions about them.
Please note that this page is neither counselling nor counselling therapy. If you need these services, please contact me or another professional. If urgent support is needed, calling Calgary Distress Centre at 403.266.4357 is an option. For emergencies, consider calling 911 or going to your local Emergency Room.
