If you have been referred to us by another professional, such as a GP or Social Worker, we will let them know that we have seen you, but not what we have discussed.

There are limited circumstances where we may need to share your information – these are explained in the Client Confidentiality Agreement you will be asked to sign, and will be discussed with you at your first meeting.
