If you have parental responsibility and you bring your child, I will assess your child. Usually I meet the parent first to explain everything then I meet with the child.
If you are a young person 13+ yrs old, I will explain how the counselling service works and I may not tell your parents everything that we discuss as you have a right to confidentiality. I will still have to keep you safe however and I will have to tell someone if I believe there is a serious risk of harm to yourself or another person. We would discuss all this together in our first session so we are clear on our boundaries on what might get passed on and what might not. If you have any questions we will go through them until we are both happy with the way that we will work together.
