One of the most important rights the client has involves confidentiality. Information you share with me during our sessions and after the therapeutic relationship has ended, will be kept confidential, unless Nikkol has your written consent to disclose certain information to any other person or agency as discussed.  In some situations, there are exceptions to confidentiality where information may be disclosed whether or not she has your permission:

    1. Children in Need of Protection: Nikkol is required under the Child, Family, and Community Service Act of British Columbia to report instances where it has reasonable cause to believe a child is in need of protection or may be at risk of abuse or neglect to the appropriate authorities.
    2. Duty to Warn – Potentially Suicidal/Homicidal/Dangerous Client: Nikkol has the duty to protect you from yourself or to protect others if you are perceived as a threat. In case of a suicide threat, a medical referral or hospitalization may be instituted. If you are considered to be dangerous to others, the police and/or threated person(s) may be informed.
    3. Legal Proceedings: Nikkol is required to release your information to a third party and/or to testify in a court hearing, if subpoenaed by a court of law.

At any time when she thinks she will have to put these into effect, she will have a conversation with you regarding what to expect moving forward and the reasoning behind the decision to disclosure. In addition, Nikkol occasionally consult within a clinical team for the purpose of supervision and case management in order to provide the best possible care. In the purpose of professional consultation, every effort is made to ensure your identity remains confidential. Nikkol is committed to her privacy policy and will always obtain your consent before disclosing any personal information. If you have any questions or concerns about how BC’s Personal Information Protection Act or you feel she is not adhering to her personal information policies and procedures, please don’t hesitate to contact her for additional information and to resolve any concerns.
