The first thing you should know is that our telephone counselling service is entirely confidential and the calls are never listened or recorded. Our counsellors and psychotherapists are UK-based professionals and qualified under the British standards. They follow their British professional body code of ethics, and therefore they will not breach confidentiality unless an individual is deemed a danger to themselves or anybody else.
