Counselling Policy

KLC Counselling aims to provide clients with a professional and confidential therapeutic counselling service. Karen is a member of the British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP), which means that their code of ethics will be followed. Clients can, at any time, ask for a copy of this code of ethics if they wish. What is discussed with counsellors will remain private and confidential.  Supervision is attended on a regular basis so that knowledge and skills and expanded upon and clients gain the best possible help. Supervision cannot identify clients, as counselling supervisors have no access to any identifiable client details. This enables counsellors to maintain a high standard of counselling proficiency at all times.

Important policies


Everything discussed in a counselling session is done so in the strictest confidence. However, where information is revealed eluding to involvement with terrorism, drug trafficking, money laundering or child abuse (where current harm to a child is taking place), KLC Counselling has a legal duty to disclose such information to the police or relevant authorities. Where suicidal thoughts or intent to self-harm/harm others is revealed and convincing, a referral may result, but only after a client has been informed.
