Person Writing

SAFEGUARDING

  • If you threaten to harm another person and I assess this to be a serious threat I am duty bound to protect you and the other person.


  • If it transpires that a child or a vulnerable person is at risk from abuse or neglect, I would need to get in touch with social care services and possibly notify the police depending upon circumstances.


  • If you threaten to cause severe harm to yourself and I assess this threat to be serious we are ethically required to protect you.  In these situations, we would talk to you about relevant services to ensure you are safe.

TERMINATION OF SERVICES

Ideally our involvement ends with successful outcomes at the end of our work together. If further support is necessary it may be important to access support through your school or GP to access the local Child and Adolescent Mental Health Services (CAMHS).

Other reasons for terminating our services include challenging and disruptive behaviour, persistent drug/alcohol abuse, being under the influence of drugs or alcohol during classes and disclosing illegal intentions or actions.
