All RCC’s subscribe to a Code of Ethics and Standard of Practice which require counsellors to protect the confidentiality of their communications with clients. As a client, you are guaranteed the protection of confidentiality within the boundaries of the client/counsellor relationship. Any disclosure will be made with your full written, informed consent and will be limited to a specific topics outlined on a consent form. The only limitations to confidentiality occur when a counsellor feels that there is clear and imminent danger to yourself or others, when your counsellor or your file is subpoenaed in a court case, or if there is information shared about current child-abuse. Whenever possible, you will be informed before any confidential information is ever shared outside of the counselling relationship.
