As counselors, we try to keep the counseling sessions with our students confidential.  We want them to trust us and feel safe when they come to talk to us. If we find that a student is going to harm themselves in any way, is planning on harming someone else, or someone is harming them; then we must break confidentiality and inform the appropriate people.
