Privacy and Professional Code of Ethics

 

Privacy and confidentiality are cornerstones to upholding my ethical standards.  As a member of the BC Association of Clinical Counsellors ( BCACC ) I am dedicated to providing the highest standards of professional counselling as well as adhering to PIPA, British Columbia’s Personal Information Protection Act. . For phone-based counselling, my wireless carrier is Fido.  For virtual online counselling, I meet with clients using a professional Zoom account that is a 256–bit encrypted online platform.   I also use Jane’s App, a practice management software for booking appointments and record keeping.
