Therapist have an ethical and moral obligation to keep information revealed in session confidential. Furthermore, the law protects the confidential nature of the relationship between a client and their therapist. 

There are several exceptions to this rule:

  •  In an emergency when there is eminent danger to the client or another person, the therapist is required by law to breach confidentiality. 
  • North Carolina Law requires that suspected child, elder abuse, or domestic violence be reported to the Department of Social Services. 

Otherwise, information will only be released with written permission unless client is under the age of 18.  In that case, the client's legal guardian must provide written consent.
