Therapy and Client Confidentiality: Your Rights.
Pretty often one of the biggest things I hear from people going through difficult situations is a fear that speaking to someone is going to cause them to immediately contact the police or family. It’s a big and often all too real fear to face, which is why it can stop you from seeking help for months, or even at all.
But client confidentiality isn’t meant to be a deterrent. In fact, it really should be the opposite.
This is a general summary of Client Confidentiality and how it works in situations involving current or prior suicide, self harm, sexual, physical or domestic assault, and minors. In particular, it focuses on Australia and America, but the legal systems are fairly similar. It should at least give you a good grounding on where you stand, and a few sources for further information.
DISCLAIMER: this is by no means a comprehensive guide of state by state law. For specifics in your particular state or territory, please seek further advice.

never, ever use the e-word in your writing. does your character have green e***? no. they have verdant orbs, leafy pools, bright emerald fields resting on their face
Me and my girlfriend have decided on our wedding vows; I reckon they’re pretty swank.
“In your hand, take this ring. So long as you have the makings, then through this simple act of taking, its wielder you shall one day be. And you will find me, friend—no ocean will contain you then. No more borders around, or below, or above, so long as you champion the ones you love.”
