Ethics and Conduct

At Kids & Co  you can expect to receive an excellent standard of clinical care, delivered with a respect for ethical and confidentiality guidelines.

Psychologists are bound by a professional code of conduct which you can view by accessing the NSW Psychologists Registration Board website. Everything that we discuss with you is kept strictly confidential, and we will not divulge and information without your permission.

We respect your child or young person’s right to confidentiality while they receive individual therapy. However, if we believe there are things that it would be helpful for parents to know, for example to change the problematic situation, then we will discuss with your child or young person how we could tell you, as their parent or caregiver. As much as possible, we aim to keep parents informed of the work your children or adolescents are doing in therapy, and keep you up-to-date with their progress.

Our confidentiality becomes limited, and we are legally obliged to divulge information, when we obtain evidence or knowledge that:

  • a child is at risk of physical, sexual, or emotional harm
  • an adult is at risk of harming themselves, or
  • an adult or child has intentions of harm toward others.

Further, in the event of subpoena for legal proceedings, our information may be required by law to be released.

Why Choose a Psychologist?

Psychologists are experts in applying reliable and scientifically researched methods of helping people with a wide range of situations and difficulties.

The Australian Psychological Society (APS) defines psychologists as “experts in human behaviour, having studied the brain, memory, learning, human development and the processes determining how people think, feel, behave and react”.

To guarantee the best standard of care, all Australian psychologists are legally required to be nationally registered, a status which is updated annually. This helps ensure you receive the optimal and most current clinical care for your situation.

Clinical Psychologists are specialist psychologists with advanced Masters or Doctorate qualifications, and extensive experience in the specialist areas of diagnosis, treatment and prevention of mental health, personal, and family issues.
