CONFIDENTIALITY AND INTEGRITY
psychologists adhere strictly to the ethical principles of confidentiality and integrity. We fully comply with the Confidentiality Policy of NHS England and are bound by a legal duty of confidence to protect personal information that is entrusted to us during our work with our clients.
We promote an environment of trust and we do not pass on or discuss the information our clients share with us in the course of their assessment, treatment and rehabilitation.
The only and important exceptions to confidentiality occur when it conflicts with our duty, as clinicians, to warn and to protect. These exceptions include instances of suicidal behavior or homicidal plans, child abuse, elder abuse and dependent adult abuse.
clients can be absolutely sure of the integrity of our practice and that every aspect of our work is fully consistent with the values, beliefs and principles that we hold and espouse.
