Therapy Contract

My commitment to you
1) Environment: I will provide a safe and secure environment in which sensitive issues can
be raised with confidence.
2) Confidentiality: our therapy together will be confidential: I may seek the guidance of my
clinical supervisor with an issue that has arisen in session, and this too will be treated
confidentially. Outside of this situation confidentiality would only be broken unexpectedly if I believe there is a risk of harm to yourself or somebody else. I have a Privacy Policy which is available please ask if you would like a copy.
3) Treatment plan: treatment is a collaborative process which is mutually inclusive of your
views and ideas as the client, as well as mine as the therapist.
