Confidentiality

Counseling often deals with very personal and highly private issues. A successful outcome depends on a feeling of freedom on the client's part to express feelings, attitudes, and thoughts with people who respect them and their right to privacy. Interviews conducted are confidential, and information is not released except with the client's written permission or as may be required by issues of safety or law. Confidentiality is an important component of the Code of Ethics of the American Counseling Association.
