We take confidentiality very seriously and this is discussed with all clients during their first appointment.
We aim to provide a caring and effective service in a safe environment. We are particularly mindful of the need to provide a professional, confidential service and will always take note of any instructions you may have about how we are to contact you. We will not reveal confidential information about you to a third party unless someone’s personal safety is at risk.
The boundaries of confidentiality are explained to young people accessing our Family Counselling services and Relate has a Child Protection and Safeguarding Policy in place to ensure that while we support young people we also help to keep them safe.
Relate Dacorum, Watford and Three Rivers has a team of trained, professional counsellors and therapists who work within the ethical framework of practice, conduct and confidentiality of the following:
- British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapists (BACP)
- The College of Sexual and Relationship Therapy (COSRT)
- Association of Family Therapy (AFT)
