About my policies
This pages sets out my policies when working as Juline Counselling. Setting these out clearly helps me to ensure that I meet a range of legal and ethical requirements which apply to me as a therapist. For you as a client or potential client, this provides transparency as to how I work .
Sometimes I work together with other therapists, agencies or third parties. These policies apply only where you (my client) have been explicitly informed that they apply. Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions about them.
List of my policies
Here is a list of all my policies.
Confidentiality & Disclosure Policy
This policy sets out the primacy of confidentiality in the client-therapist relationship. It also sets out the limits of confidentiality and where I may disclose information to a third party because ethical or legal considerations require it. My policy is not published here. However it is provided to all clients and prospective clients.
It is a requirement under UK data protection legislation for even a small businesses to write its own ‘Privacy Notice’ which sets out they take care of your personal information. You can read mine here if you wish!
Rescheduling and Cancellations
To the extent that I have a policy, this is governed by my Counselling Agreement with clients. If there are any changes, clients will be notified directly.
External frameworks which I adhere to
I am a member of the British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP). As such, I adhere to their Ethical Framework and their Memorandum of Understanding on Conversion Therapy in the UK.
