! PRIVACY & CONFIDENTIALITY in Counselling and Related Services
Our counsellors work to the Kod Etika Kaunselor of the Lembaga Kaunselor Malaysia.
All information shared with the counsellor is private and confidential, including scheduling of or attendance at appointments, content of your sessions, progress in counselling, and your records are confidential. Your information will not be released to others without your signed permission, and you may request in writing to your counsellor to release specific information about your counselling to persons you designate. However, please note that any communication through email, text or telephone is not secure and privacy cannot be guaranteed.
A counsellor would consider breaking confidentiality only in very exceptional circumstances; where you or someone else could be at risk of serious harm, or where required by law.
EXCEPTIONS TO CONFIDENTIALITY:
If there is evidence of clear and imminent danger of harm to self and/or others, a counsellor is legally required to report this information to the authorities responsible for ensuring safety.
When a minor (any person under 18 years of age) is involved.
A court order, issued by a judge, may require a counsellor to release information contained in records and/or require a counsellor to testify in a court hearing.
The counselling staff works as a team. Your counsellor may consult with other counselling staff to provide the best possible care. These consultations are for professional and training purposes.
