Privacy Policy

This is to inform you what data I am collecting from you and what I intend to do with it. The policy may be changed to make sure that I am adhering to GDPR rules, and any new updates will be updated on this page.

What data do I keep, and why do I need it?

Name and age – this is essential information that helps me get to know you.

Address, email address, and phone number – I use this to contact you regarding your sessions. I will mainly use the method you first contacted me on, but if I cannot reach you, I will try a different method.

Next of kin/medical professional’s details – If I was worried that you were at risk, then I may need to contact your next of kin or a medical professional if I can. I will let you know when/if I will do this.

Session notes – I keep brief notes of our session(s).

Will I share your data, and if I do, who will I share it with, and for what purpose?

It is doubtful that I will share your data. I will not sell it or use it for unethical reasons. I may have to share it if the court subpoenas my notes, and if you or anyone you tell me about is at harm or risk of harm, I may have to pass this information on. I may also discuss your case during supervision, but I will only use your first name.

How will I store your data?

It is stored as a hard copy in a locked filing cabinet. Immediately after the work is finished, I transfer the data with your initials to my password-protected computer. Your phone number(s) may be kept in my business mobile phone with your first name and last initial. Only I will access your information.

How long will I store your data, and how will I dispose of it?

I will keep your details and session notes for the time required by my insurer (currently 7).

After this time, I will destroy any document with your personal information and delete your phone number from my mobile phone.
