Over the 15 years that I have been writing on the internet (and for a long time before that) I have been privileged to be a trusted confidante for many people who have needed someone who they could rely upon. For the most part they just want to feel safe, respected, understood, to share their stories and to know that what they tell me will go no further. I always honour that trust.
Very occasionally survivors and experiencers feel they need their stories to be made public. On my websites I have published some of these accounts; always with their full permission and respecting their anonymity,when it is requested.
I do everything possible to ensure the privacy and safety of everyone who writes to me.
My apologies for this but after 15 years of website presence I’ve found it increasingly necessary.
