Confidentiality:

All discussion content and personal information gathered by the psychologist during the provision of the psychological service will remain confidential and secure.

Any information that is gathered as part of the assessment, diagnosis and treatment of the client’s condition is seen only by the psychologist. The information is retained in order to document what happens during sessions, and enables the psychologist to provide a relevant and informed psychological service.
