I must collect and hold information of a personal nature about you and I am committed to ensuring this is done in a way that protects your privacy. If you have any concerns or questions about this policy or anything contained within it, please get in touch.
As a private counsellor, in accordance to GDPR and the Data Protection Act, all information that I hold must be collected and used fairly, stored safely and not disclosed unlawfully.
The information you share during therapy and on this website is confidential. Information will not be shared with anyone connected to you, and I will not inform anyone that you are seeing me except from the referring organisation (if applicable). The information I document can be shared with you at any time. You may request to see all data I have. Information may be shared with other organisations if I decide that not sharing that information may place you, or anyone else at risk of harm. For example, if you advise that you are a risk to yourself or others, you disclose a child or adult safeguarding concern, or a serious crime. Additionally, if requested by a court of law.
