Abstract

Discusses the ethical and legal complexities of confidentiality in counselling where, often, there is uncertainty about what the optimum practice should be, and when there may also be problems in implementing ethical practice. Reports on the codes of practice, published by the British Association of Counsellors, which are intended to clarify this situation. Discusses confidentiality and the law, and a counsellor′s conflicting obligations to client and employer.
