Therapy Contract


    In therapy, both the Client and the Therapist have rights and responsibilities. It may be helpful for you to read these before we start working together and clarify any concerns that you may have about the therapeutic process.

    Your Client Rights:
    1. A right to dignity as an individual. You have the right to equal consideration and treatment, regardless of gender, background, beliefs, age or sexual preference.
    2. To be provided with professional and respectful care by your therapist.
    3. To be accepted as you are, and to be listened to in a non-judgemental manner.
    4. To know your therapist’s assessment of the issue that you are presenting with.
    5. Confidentiality within therapy.
    Confidentiality is only broken when: the client gives consent for confidence to be broken; where the therapist is compelled by the court of law; or where the information is of such gravity that confidentiality cannot be maintained’ i.e. in cases of fraud, crime, terrorism and/or where there is a case of actual or potential serious physical harm to self or others.

    Your Client Responsibilities:
    1. To be honest, open and willing to share your concerns with your therapist.
    2. To ask questions when you don’t understand or need clarification.
    3. To be prompt and keep appointments.
    4. To be responsible for your own thoughts, feelings, actions and personal growth. Your therapist’s role is to help you to help yourself to the best of your abilities.
    5. Not to consume alcohol or take non-prescription drugs prior to sessions.

    Therapist Responsibilities:
    - As your Therapist I am bound by the Code of Ethics set out by the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy and I will adhere to their guidelines.
    - I may discuss your case with the Wellbeing Practice supervisor to ensure safe and ethical practice. Your identity will be protected, unless I am required to break confidentiality for the reasons listed above.
