Client Bill of Rights
1. I have the right to be treated as a person first - regardless of my role, profession, class, race, gender or non-binary status, degree of fame, varying ability or disability, etc. Most of all, I am a person who is more than any of my issues or challenges. Each time Laura and I meet, I expect to be as the whole person I am. Laura will do her best to be a person first and won't put profession or knowledge between us.
2. I have the right to expect to receive gentle, unobtrusive suggestions and guidance through the Focusing session. I have the right to ask for clarification or make requests at any time.
3. I have the right to expect that Laura will not diagnose, analyze, interpret, "fix" or make me feel wronged.
4. I have the right to expect that I will not reveal any private information that I am not comfortable sharing.
5. I have the right to share with Laura any interpersonal issues that bring a feeling of discomfort or challenge.
6. I have the right to choose whether or not to schedule another Focusing session with Laura.
7. I have the right to ask for clarification about policies.
8. I have the right to expect that Laura will work within her limits and boundaries.
9. I have the right that all information that Laura knows about me (including the fact that I am her client) be kept confidential and not revealed to another person or institution without my explicit written permission.
10. I can expect Laura to be a kind, caring, and compassionate human being.
