Undertaking counselling is an important decision; you should therefore feel free to ask the practitioner any questions which may arise before and during your sessions.

Over and above any method or technique, it is primarily a relationship of trust and collaboration between two people. It is therefore essential that you have confidence in the competence and care of the therapist.

Here are some points on the frame work that ensure the safety of the counselee and the practitioner:

The confidentiality of patient identity and content of the sessions
The prohibition of any acting out, particularly violent or sexual
The misuse of control or power between the patient and therapist
