But, I thought everything I said to a counsellor was confidential. What type of information given to a counsellor is confidential and what isn’t?

Everything you say to a therapist is confidential with four exceptions:

  • Any reference to a child or children being abused,
  • Indications that there are serious considerations for the safety of the client’s life or others’ lives,
  • Court subpoenas,
  • Reports sometimes required by insurance companies on the assessments and interventions used with the client as well as the projected number of sessions needed if a client uses insurance to cover the cost of counselling.
