  Policy and Guidelines

Find out what you need to know about confidentiality, data protection and records.

The Counselling Service has a strict code of confidentiality and will not pass on any information regarding your counselling unless in exceptional circumstances. Counsellors have a duty of care towards students and work to the Ethical Framework for Good Practice of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy.

You can view the BACP ethical framework here.​
