You might be anxious about talking to a counsellor for the first time. At Liverpool Bereavement Service we understand this and all counsellors are trained to listen to you. We are not here to give advice or pass judgement.
All counsellors and volunteers follow the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) ethical framework. Respecting your privacy and confidentiality are basic requirements within our code of practice.
All counsellors receive regular supervision so we can ensure good practice and high standards in counselling. Counselling is an opportunity to talk about your worries, concerns and anxieties in a confidential setting with someone who is trained to listen to you and explore your situation. It is up to you what you will talk about.
We will protect your confidentiality and privacy by:
It is our duty to make exceptions to confidentiality rules and inform the relevant authorities arise in the following circumstances: That you intend to harm yourself or another person; There are concerns regarding the safety of a child; Any intention to commit, or knowledge of, any act of terrorism; Any knowledge or concerns of, money laundering.
