Your Rights as a Client
- You have the right to decide not to enter therapy with any therapist. If you wish, most therapists will provide you with the names of other good therapists.
- You have the right to end therapy at any time. The only thing you will have to do is to pay for any treatments you have already had.
- You have the right to ask any questions, at any time, about what is happening during therapy, and to receive answers that satisfy you.
- You have the right not to allow the use of any therapy technique.
- You have the right to keep what you say in counseling private. Generally, no one will learn about your counseling without your written permission. There are some situations in which therapists are required by law to reveal some information. Consult your therapist for more information, or if you have questions/concerns.
