Confidentiality agreements and sharing information

Mums4aChange works with a confidentiality policy so that ordinarily we would not share the content of our coaching work together unless we had consent to do so. The exceptions to this are if someone is at risk of serious harm or abuse or their life in danger if confidentiality were kept.

Prior to joining a group or 1-1 coaching programme you will be asked to enter into a coaching agreement that gives more details about confidentiality. The agreement explains that mums4achange coaches receive supervision and discuss their work with a supervisor and 3 other coaches for professional and development purposes.  Both supervisior and coaches are  bound by confidentiality and no identifying details are used.

The Europrean Mentoring and Coaching Council also require that records are kept and made available for scrutiny for accreditation purposes. Data collected and shared includes start date and duration of  the coaching as well as a purpose and outcome of the coaching in the broadest terms. No identifying details are used.
