Statement of Understanding


I understand that all information shared with my therapist will remain confidential within their service and will only be disclosed with my consent, except where they believe there may be a risk either to myself or others, or where there is a legal duty of disclosure.

I understand my therapist has case supervision with a supervisor where a broad outline of my case may be discussed as part of the supervisory process.  If the supervisor does not work in the same service no identifying details will be disclosed.

Outcome measures

Your therapist uses various measures in order to gauge your response to treatment.  If you are happy to do so, you will be asked to fill out some brief questionnaires before and after therapy sessions.  These questionnaires help the therapist understand your needs, your past and present strengths and how best to help.

Data Protection

Your personal details and information from the questionnaire will be treated as strictly confidential and in accordance with the terms of the Data Protection Act.  With your permission, the anonymised data from the questionnaires will be transferred to a secure database to be used for service evaluation and research.
