Psychotherapy is a confidential service.
The content of the meetings remains private. It is indeed essential that what is said in a climate of confidence such as that of a psychologist's office does not leave the office. Otherwise, how to inspire this trust from the customer? On the other hand, how to offer a psychotherapy process if an ingredient as important as trust is lacking?

Confidentiality is an important foundation of trust in a psychotherapist.
That's why the confidentiality of what is said in therapy is assured, except in one of the following four exceptional situations:
These exceptions are intended to protect the public. The practice of psychotherapy is supervised by a professional order: the Ordre des psychologues du Québec.
