Appointments with children and young people
Some children and young people may prefer to be seen either with their parents or alone. I therefore tailor these appointments on an individual basis to ensure that the child/young person is comfortable with the settings.
Where I see children/young people on a one-to-one basis I will not dicuss their counselling session with parents or schools, unless they specifically ask me to do so, or if there is a concern around safety. This is in line with BACP best practice; I’m happy to discuss this further should you have any concerns.
