How do I know that I can trust the therapist with what I tell them?

Therapy is a very personal and private undertaking and an important part of a therapist’s job is to create a sense of trust and confidence in them and in the relationship between you, so that you feel able to share things that feel difficult or perhaps you have never felt able to share with anyone before. All good therapists take this seriously and will not discuss what you have shared with others, unless they are required to do so either ethically or legally.
Therapists must adhere to a professional code of ethics which includes strict rules about confidentiality and this is a specific requirement of the affiliated and accredited bodies they belong to in their area of practise. There are only a very few instances where they would be ethically or legally bound to breach confidentiality and most good therapists should explain this to you in the first few sessions or have it clearly stated in their therapy contracts.
