DUTY OF CARE
P R I V A C Y & C O N F I D E N T I A L I T Y
MindWorks Clinic protects the privacy of clients who consent to participate in counselling sessions that involve disclosure of private information. All clients acknowledge and agree to the informed consent.
Case notes or any recorded material are saved encrypted in an electronic device upon
completion of treatment sessions. Case notes are shredded once treatment is
completed. Our duty of care is to always act in the best interest of the client, as a safe working environment fosters productivity and avoids unnecessary risks.
We provide a service that abides by PACFA and AHA.
C O N F I D E N T I A L I T Y
All information is kept confidential, except in the following circumstances:
If subpoenaed by a court of law
If there is risk of harm to the client or a third party.
If a child or elderly person is in danger
If you have given signed consent to share information with third parties to support treatment goals

When a client indicates that they would like a second opinion, MindWorks Clinic can offer
every practicable assistance to clients to obtain a second opinion.
