How can counselling help?
Counselling is a process of helping someone to make the changes they would like to make in their lives. Counselling can differ from talking to family and friends in that counsellors are trained to be neutral, keep information confidential and have skills to help people learn about themselves. In the non-judgemental environment of counselling sessions, people can receive the understanding and support that they need to clarify issues, explore options, develop strategies, practice new skills and ultimately, make change.
We take your right to confidentiality seriously. We will only share information about you to those outside of Klinic if we have your permission, except in the following situations:
- Child Welfare: The law requires all citizens to report child abuse and neglect. If we believe that a child is at risk, we will ask the appropriate agency for help.
- Threats of Harm: If we believe that you or someone else may suffer serious harm or death, we will do what is necessary for safety. We may need to ask the appropriate agency for help.
- Justice System Request: In rare cases, the court or police may ask to see client records. We will always try to tell you about any actions we need to take to keep everyone safe.
Klinic is a teaching environment
In the Drop-In Counselling Program, you may see a student counsellor who is under the supervision of one of our staff counsellors. With your consent, these sessions will be recorded to ensure our students get the best supervision possible. Recordings are strictly confidential and destroyed after 60 days.
