Confidentiality & Privacy:


Psychologists are bound by a strict Code of Ethics to ensure that clients' confidentiality and privacy are protected. The Nova Scotia Personal Health Information Act also requires that your personal health information is protected by our psychologists and administrative staff. With your permission, graduate students who are training to become psychologists may be involved in assessments. They are also required to comply with our confidentiality and privacy policies.

Confidentiality

We use email to communicate information that is not highly confidential, such as appointment times. Please be aware that email is not a secure form of communication so we cannot guarantee that information you disclose in an email will not be intercepted by a third party.

Privacy

The Personal Health Information Act (PHIA) recognizes both the right of individuals to protect their personal health information and the need for psychologists (or other health "custodians") to manage clients' personal health information to provide, support and manage their health care and wellness. The highlights of our policies under PHIA include:

Consent

We will review an Authorization for Assessment form at the beginning of the first session. This form outlines the services that have been agreed upon by the client and the psychologist.
