What is a Clinical Will?
A Clinical Will is a set of instructions made by a therapist, counsellor or coach for what will
happen to their practice in the event that
they are no longer able to work due to sudden illness or death.
As a minimum, it lays out how clients can be contacted and supported if a practitioner is unable
to do so themselves. Additionally, a Clinical Will might also include details of other people or
organisations related to a practitioner’s business that might need to be notified.
Importantly, the requirement is that any contact is made by an appropriate person and takes
place within the limits of clinical confidentiality.
