ASSERT Therapists

Allied health professional industry regulatory disclosure requirements

All personal information gathered by an ASSERT NSW member during a counselling or therapy session will remain confidential except when:

it is subpoenaed by a court; or

  • failure to disclose the information would place you or another person at serious risk to life, health or safety; or

  • your prior approval has been arranged to

  • provide a written report to another professional or agency (e.g. a GP or a lawyer or other allied health professional); or

  • discuss the material with another person (e.g. a parent, employer or healthy provider; or

  • disclose the information in another way; or

  • you would reasonably expect your personal information to be disclosed to another professional or agency (e.g. your GP) and disclosure of your personal information to that third party is for a purpose which is directly related to the primary purpose for which your personal information was collected; or

  • disclosure is otherwise required or authorised by law.

The client agrees not to record by any means any session or part thereof including note taking unless otherwise agreed to. Failure to do so would constitute a severe breach of client-counsellor/therapist confidentiality. Further, recordings of any session may be in breach of the NSW Surveillance Devices Act 2007 No. 64 Part 2 and other legislation as the case may be.

As part of providing a counselling/therapy service it may be necessary to collect and record personal information that is relevant to a client’s situation. This information is a necessary part of the consultative service provided to the client.  All personal information gathered during the provision of the counselling/therapy service will remain confidential and secure unless compelled to do so by law or security reasons.

Privacy and Confidentiality

Online counselling

Where appropriate the service may be provided by telephone, email or videoconferencing. The client is responsible for the costs associated with setting up the technology needed so you can access online services. The client is also responsible to make sure their computer is protected against malicious software that may affect online activities. The counsellor/therapist will be responsible for the cost of the call to you and the cost associated with the platform used to conduct counselling services.

To access online consultations, the client will need access to a quiet, private space; and the appropriate device, i.e. smartphone, laptop, iPad, computer, with a camera, microphone and speakers; and a reliable broadband internet connection.

The privacy of any form of communication via the internet is potentially vulnerable and limited by the security of the technology used.

To support the security of your personal information the use of Skype is suggested. Why Skype? According to the Royal Australian College of General Practitioners there is currently no evidence to suggest that Skype is unsuitable for clinical use (RACGP Telehealth video consultations guide, accessed 14 April 2020). The counsellor/therapist may also use other teleconferencing software from time to time such as Zoom if that is more convenient for the client, or other teleconferencing means in line with the counsellor's/therapist's own practice.

An online consultation may be subject to limitations such as an unstable network connection, which may affect the quality of the counselling session. In addition, there may be some services for which online counselling is not appropriate or effective. Your counsellor/therapist will consider and discuss with you the appropriateness of ongoing online sessions.
