Perspectives Counselling & Psychological Services

is committed to protecting your privacy.


​​When you choose to contact us by phone, e-mail or in person we treat all the information you provide as confidential following the strict rules of the College of Alberta Psychologists and the Alberta Health Information Protection Act.


The privacy of your work with your psychologist is protected; your information can only be released when you have given your written permission. In some specific situations, psychologists can share information without the client's written consent. Common exceptions are:

  • Psychologists may disclose private information without consent in order to protect the patient or the public from serious harm — if, for example, a client discusses plans to attempt suicide or harm another person.


  • Psychologists are required to report ongoing domestic violence, abuse or neglect of children, the elderly or people with disabilities. (However, if an adult discloses that he or she was abused as a child, the psychologist typically isn't bound to report that abuse, unless there are other children continuing to be abused.)


  • Psychologists may release information if they receive a court order. That might happen if a person's mental health came into question during legal proceedings.


​Please ask your psychologist any questions you may have regarding privacy and confidentiality.
