As a member of the College of Psychologists of BC I am held to a high standard of care. I regularly consult with colleagues and stay abreast of the field by reading and taking courses relevant to my areas of practice.
Although there are exceptions to the confidentiality rule (to do with averting identifiable and imminent serious harm) it happens very rarely, and always in consultation with the client. These parameters are discussed ahead of time.
The cornerstone of good therapy is attuned listening. I have training in many modes of therapy because everyone is different . My task is to listen well enough to understand your needs and to work with you on a plan for meeting your goals.
