If you are booking a session for anyone over the ages of 10 please read our note to tweens/teens below. This particularly applies to all children over 12.
These sessions are best done one on one. If you have more then one child the session can be split between 2 children each receiving a 25 minute session each. To split the session please contact me after you have purchased your package to discuss this option.
Privacy of Sessions A note for tweens/teens (12 years+)
During our private session with tweens & teens (that's you) privacy and trust can be very important so what you say to me privately, stays that way, including your parents & guardians, unless we have your permission to tell them.
This privacy, also called confidentiality, is very important to me because I want you to feel comfortable & have more trust in me and our sessions. So, as a general rule, I will keep the information you share with me in our sessions confidential, unless I have your consent (permission) to share certain information.
However, there are some important exceptions to this rule.
If you are involved in a court case & a formal request (a subpoena) is made which requires me to share your information then I may have to, even without your consent. Also, if I believe that you are at serious risk of harming yourself or another person, or if someone else is harming you, then I must take steps to protect you.
This means that I may have to share what you have told me with other people, such as a parent or guardian, or the relevant authorities (eg. child protection), with or without your consent.
If any of these situations do come up and I feel I must share your information, I will do my best to talk to you about who we need to share the information with, what I need to tell them, and why. Except for in the situations mentioned above, I will not tell your parents/guardians specific things you share with me in sessions, unless I have your permission.
However, sometimes it is important for your parent/guardian to know what is going on in your life. In those situations, I will encourage you to tell your parent/guardian and if you choose to I can help you find the best way to tell them.
Also, depending on your age and family situation, if your parents/guardians ask to meet with me, I may describe problems in general terms, without sharing any specific information that you have told me, in order to help them know how to be more helpful to you.
I will do my best to talk to you about this first to make sure that you are comfortable with this. Sometimes it may be helpful for me to talk with other people that may be able to help with your reason for coming to see me, such as your doctor, school counsellor, teacher, or other health professional. If I think that this would be helpful I would first talk to you about what information would be shared and I would only share that information if I have your permission to do so. If a doctor or other professional referred you to us, I would usually write a letter back to that person to give them feedback about the reasons you came to see me and how we are going with improving these things (a summary letter).
If you have any other questions, requests or queries please fell free to call or email me direct.
