Our expert says:
There's an awful current fashion for "Confrontation" which is a truly lousy technique except in special circumstances. TALK about this calmly with your friend, esplaining that you have always felt able to trust her, and want to do so, but are troubled by people round the office telling you that she has shared with them things you thought you had told her in confidence. If you confront, she gets defensive ; if you talk calmly, you may find out what this is about, an may manage to change her way of dealing with your confidences. Maybe she didn't realize you expected these matters to be kept in confidence ? If she has no explanation, no regrets, and no apology, then just modify yout policy and share no further confidences with her
