What about confidentiality?

Confidentiality is assured for all clients, as dictated by the Australian Psychology Association Code of Ethics.
If you have been referred by a medical  practitioner your written consent is obtained to liaise with that professional.  If you require information to be sent and/or received to any other professionals/people your written consent is also acquired.
The only circumstances in which confidentiality can be breached is if the file is subpoenaed by a court, or if information needs to be disclosed to protect the client or any one else.
