Confidentiality Voce

If you are in US, confidentiality doesn't go away when the professional relationship ends. In fact, you have more confidentiality after the professional relationship ends.

A current therapist could discuss you and your issues with an old treater with your permission, and could discuss with a colleague in his own institution, and for insurance and administration purposes. But they can't just gossip, consult, and disclose to each other about former clients.
It's part of HIPPA. If you are not US, I have no idea.

You also have absolute right to your medical records, except for psych notes, which a provider can refuse to provide with cause, and there is some kind of recourse to appeal. I'm not a lawyer, I just retain information well. Research any of this before you take it as true.

I've said before, I'd personally rather not know. But what you want is up to you, not me and not paper shufflers at a business.
