Sure Start
How Confidential Is It ?

Confidentiality

 

The Counselling team offers a confidential service within Midlothian Surestart. This means that we do not pass on any personal information that would lead to other people knowing that you access the service and what you talk about.

 

In exceptional circumstances such as where you may harm yourself or others, counsellors may be legally and/or ethically required to take action. Should these circumstances arise then the counsellor will share the concern with you. This may also lead to information being shared with appropriate professionals in an order to protect the safety and confidentiality of those involved. The appropriate and minimum amount of information would be passed on.

 

All counsellors receive external clinical supervision and are supported by the Counselling Services Manager.
