From talking to others, I'm pretty sure confidentiality rights are the same in England. I have a few friends who go to Gartnavel hospital,so I'm going to find out at this for you. In England, if you don't want a student in the room, all you have to do is say no, and no more will be said about
it. I'll fnd out and get back to you about
that, although, it maytake me a couple of days.
Thinking back I've actually had 3 different Psych's. The first 2 I used to clam up with big style, luckily, both of them left, as I always felt guilty about
asking for another when all they were doing were trying to help me. It's only because the one I have now is so friendly and down to earth and knows how to deal with me, depending on my facial expressions, that I can get on with her. I agree with what others have been saying, that some councillors you will get on with better than others. Maybe it is that another Coucillor would be best for you.
I know from experiance thart you have to have 100% confidence with who your talking to. Which is why you will find it easier talking to someone you know, than someone you don't. Sometimes you can guarentee the confidence is there when you first meet a person. They will make you feel safe to talk about
all your worries. Just in there facial expressions and there first greeting.
Has the survey been seen by your councillor? Maybe it is good to mention that you did a survey. I'm not sure how the surveys work, as I've never personally done one.
I'll get back to you soon about
the laws on student nurses, in the mean while keep your chin up chuck!
