Most people are understandably concerned about confidentiality when they seek such services. EMCC understands that confidentiality is an integral part of establishing the trust and safety necessary to effectively help clients.

Please read the forms you are presented with on your first visit in order to understand the legal limits of confidentiality and the professional code of ethics. Confidentiality issues should be discussed with your counsellor.
