    Basically, I had a bit of an arguement with my therapist last week and she sent me a letter and a birthday card just to clear the air a bit.

    I see her in school(she doesn't work for the school, but is from an external organisation)

    so she sent the letter clearly addressed to me to my sixth form so I could recieve it.

    When I was handed the letter from my form tutor, it was ripped open and so someone had read it.

    It had some VERY personal things written in there and i'm feel so exposed and paranoid as i'm not sure who opened it.

    Before I could say anything to my tutor, she immediatly began justifying herself saying it was already open when she picked it up from the pile this morning.

    I feel so upset, betrayed and exposed.I am sooo embarassed because of what the letter said.

    WHat should I do to get to the bottom of this?

    many thanks.

    Compain to therapist?
    Tbh, opening letters is bad regardless of content. Might help school to be alerted of such happenings.

    Tell the school, but not through your tutor.

    Not only is this an invasion of your privacy, its actually illegal.
    You need to tell someone at your school, I'd go straight to your head teacher or a support teacher that you trust. Don't just let this go cause they could be doing it to other people as well.
    Hope it gets sorted for you!
