How can I be sure what I say will remain private?Counseling services are confidential. This means that we will not tell anyone that you are a client and will not share what you have discussed in our office without your consent. We will not give information to your parents or to offices or departments in the university without your permission.
There are a few limits to confidentiality. If we believe that you are immediately and seriously a danger to yourself or to others, we will try to keep you safe and to warn anyone you intend to harm. We may also required to break confidentiality if we are made aware of current or historical child abuse or neglect.
