I have decided to start this discussion to try and get some advice for my sister. She has recently started Cognitive Behavioural Therapy. She just came back from her second session today and was very upset. The things she discussed with her therapist last week were discussed under the assumption that the information would be kept cofidential, however the therapist went off and decided to speak to someone else about her session. He told her today that he had shared her information given in confidence, and as a result she has lost all trust in him. I would just like to ask anyone who has had the same therapy, or anyone who knows the rules of confidentiality, if the therapist is actually allowed to share this information with others. I would appreciate any responses to this matter. Thank you.
