Confidentiality

All our initial assessment and sessions are completely confidential.  This means, I will not talk about anything we discuss outside of the sessions, though you, of course may. There are a few exceptions:

  • As part of my on-going development and as a requirement of the BACP, I review and monitor standards to maintain the quality of my work. Which means I may need to discuss aspects of our sessions with my regular supervisor.  In such cases your identity is kept strictly anonymous.
  • Where I feel you may cause serious harm to yourself, or you are in danger, or you are likely to harm someone else, I will discuss with you my concerns and possible options.  Some of which may involve informing others such as your GP.  I will always talk with you first in these circumstance.
  • If I become aware of serious illegal activity

Complaints Policy

Should you have a complaint with Individual Mind Matters this should be directed either by way of a phone call to our office, email or in writing to Cathy Jones.  You will receive an acknowledgement within 48 hours of receipt confirming you will again hear from us within 5 working days.  We will endeavor to effectively alleviate your concerns within these timescales.  If however you continue to feel grieved after this time you have the option to contact the BACP:
