About | How I Work

The Therapy Session

The initial appointment will include a comprehensive assessment. Donna will work with you to discuss your goals, expectations and the best way to manage and improve your situation. In subsequent sessions, therapy progress will be reviewed, with reference to your goals and you will be encouraged to provide feedback to ensure that your needs are met.

As a clinician, Donna is bound by confidentiality. What is discussed in all sessions is strictly confidential. Without your consent your information will not be disclosed to anyone. However, under some circumstances Donna may not be able to maintain that confidentiality.

For example, in situations where there may be potential harm to yourself or others, or if the law demands it, she has a duty of care to disclose the information. Donna will discuss any concerns of this nature with you before disclosing any information to another party.
