I follow the UKCP Code of Ethics and Professional Practice (2019 version). I can provide you with a copy if you are interested.

Concerning privacy, the code requires that I ensure total privacy for each client. Living in a country town where everyone seems to know everyone else, I take every effort to protect my clients as follows:


* All sessions are in a private room that I pay for

* I leave a gap between sessions so that the previous client does not meet you

* If I pass you in the street, I may not say hello unless you greet me

* In my computer and in my diary, I write your initials (not your name) as computers can be hacked or stolen

* The details of your life are not discussed with anyone else with two important exceptions:

   - if I need help from another therapist  (called my supervisor), we discuss the issues (not your name)

   - if I realise that you may kill someone (yourself for example), I contact your GP and he takes care
