Your Peace of Mind Matters: The Importance of My Clinical Will

As an online therapist, based in Argyll and Bute, your well-being is at the heart of my practice. Today, I want to share something important that contributes to your peace of mind when working with me: my clinical will.

What is a Clinical Will?

Think of a clinical will as a plan for the unexpected. It's a document that outlines what happens to our therapeutic journey if, for any reason, I'm unable to continue our work. While it's not something we often think about, having a clinical will is a responsible step that ensures your needs are always taken care of.

Your Continuity of Care

I understand that you invest time and trust in our therapy sessions. With a clinical will in place, you can feel confident that your continuity of care is a priority. If unforeseen circumstances were to arise, such as my illness or incapacity, this plan ensures that your therapeutic journey can continue seamlessly.

A Trusted Colleague

In my clinical will, I've designated my clinical supervisor, who shares my commitment to your well-being as my executor. They have the expertise and experience to step in, if necessary, to support and signpost you. Rest assured that your care is in capable hands.

Your Comfort and Privacy

Your privacy is vital. The clinical will addresses how your confidentiality will be maintained throughout any transition. Your personal information and progress will always be handled with the utmost care and respect.

Open Communication

I believe in transparent and open communication. If we ever need to activate the clinical will, you will be informed and involved in the decision-making process regarding your ongoing therapy. Your voice matters.

Your Peace of Mind

Having a clinical will is one way I demonstrate my commitment to your well-being. It's about ensuring that you receive the support you need, no matter what. Your peace of mind matters to me, and I want you to feel secure in our therapeutic relationship.

The Importance of Being Prepared

While we all hope for the best, preparing for the unexpected is a sign of professionalism and responsible practice. Just like a medical professional would have a plan for a colleague to take over their patients' care in case of illness, a therapist's clinical will ensures that your therapy remains uninterrupted when you need it most.

The Role of a Designated Colleague

You might wonder why I have chosen this trusted colleague in particular  and why they are an integral part of the clinical will. This person is carefully chosen by myself because they have a similar therapeutic approach, values, and commitment to client well-being. They have the qualifications and expertise necessary to continue your therapy effectively. My Clinical Supervisor is an expert in working with all aspects of trauma and is more than capable in picking up any of my work if need be.

Transparency and Client Involvement

Your involvement and comfort are paramount. In the event that the clinical will is activated, you will be fully informed of the situation and the plan in place. You will have the opportunity to meet and decide whether you'd like to continue your therapy with my clinical supervisor or explore other options. Your autonomy and preferences will always be respected.

Ultimately, my clinical will is a testament to my dedication to your well-being. It provides peace of mind that, no matter what challenges may arise, your therapeutic journey can continue without disruption. It's a commitment to ensuring that you receive the support and care you deserve.

If you have any questions or want to discuss the clinical will in more detail, please don't hesitate to reach out. Your well-being is my priority, and I'm here to provide you with the support you need, always.
