As a practicing psychologist, issues of privacy and confidentiality are always a top concern to me. Practically, that means that the identity of people or organizations I coach or consult with, places at which I speak and people who give testimonials to me are kept private and confidential. 

 

While other speakers and coaches do not need to follow the strict guidelines of privacy and confidentiality that psychologists do, I must take a different approach. Unless permission is expressly given, I won't reveal identifiable information and all comments and anecdotes must remain anonymous. 

 

Why would you consult anyone who wouldn't have strict privacy and confidentiality practices?
