Code of ethics...

I am a registered member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) and of the United Kingdom Council of Psychotherapy (UKCP). I am also a Member of the Metanoia Insitute (MPTI). I adhere to all their code of ethics and am bound by their complaints procedures.

An important aspect of any counselling or psychotherapeutic relationship is confidentiality. It is an important ethical premise that unless you are in danger of hurting yourself or someone else, or I am compelled by a court of law, confidentiality will be maintained.

Any therapist working within the ethical frameworks of the BACP, the UKCP and the MPTI also has a professional obligation to maintain an ongoing programme of professional development. This includes consultation on a regular basis with an experienced practitioner to ensure that the highest ethical standards are maintained.
