Can a child refer themselves for therapy without a parent’s consent?

If a child is 16+ they can refer themselves for therapy without the permission of an adult. However it is our policy that any adults responsible for a child are made aware for safeguarding reasons that a child under their care is in contact with us. Sessions with a child will be confidential unless we have safeguarding concerns.

Confidentiality regarding your child will be discussed in more detail with you during the initial consultation stage.
