Is this totally confidential? Will you tell my employer? spouse?
I will not discuss our conversations with anyone without your permission. I will also include you in any of these conversations.
There are three exceptions to confidentiality: if there is a child at risk of harm, if you are at risk of harming yourself, or if you are at risk of harming someone else. These are legislated exceptions to confidentiality. If we ever enter this territory, you will likely know and it will be part of our conversations.
