It’s very important when adolescents are attending counselling that they are interested in coming themselves. At Talk About It Counselling, Siobhan believes that trust and confidentiality are of the utmost importance. It’s in this safe atmosphere that young and old can safely explore their issues and conflicts and find peace and fulfillment. For clients under 18, signed parental consent will be required.
Obviously, for child protection, there are exceptions to confidentiality, and I follow the Children First for professionals working with minors by the Minister for Children and Youth Affairs.
