Does what we talk about in therapy remain confidential?

Confidentiality is one of the most important components between a client and psychotherapist. Successful therapy requires a high degree of trust with highly sensitive subject matter that is usually not discussed anywhere but the therapist’s office.   Every therapist should provide a written copy of their confidential disclosure agreement, and you can expect that what you discuss in session will not be shared with anyone.  This is called “Informed Consent”. Sometimes, however, you may want your therapist to share information or give an update to someone on your healthcare team (e.g. your Physician), but by law your therapist cannot release this information without obtaining your written permission.


All information obtained or disclosed in therapy is strictly confidential. lt cannot be revealed to any other persons without the written consent of the client or  the client’s legal representative. The only exceptions would be those unusual circumstances in which not doing so would result in clear danger to the client or others. Also if mandated by a court order or law.
