Are counselling sessions confidential?

Posted on

Yes, 100% confidential. The team at Life Resolutions won’t discuss any of your private details with anyone, not even with our other psychologists. We would only do this if we have permission from you directly.

Anything that is shared in your sessions are used for the purpose of diagnosing, assessing and providing the right level of support you need.

It’s important to note however, that while our services are 100% confidential, due to the Psychology Board of Australia’s Code of Ethics, we do have limitations.

For example, if a client’s file is subpoenaed by the court, or if a person is at serious risk of harming themselves or those in the public, we must act with the law and the safety of the client and those around them.
