Privacy Policy

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

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

Address, email address, phone number – I use this as a way of contacting you regarding your sessions. I will mainly use the method you first contacted me on but if I cannot reach you, I will use a different method.

Next of kin/ GP's details are required. Should I be concerned that you were at risk then I may need to contact your next of kin or GP, if I can. I will advise you when/if I am going to do this. Please note it is a requirement that I have your GP's details before the session can go ahead for insurance purposes.

Session notes – I keep brief notes of our session(s), hard copies only.

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

It is very unlikely that I will share your data. I will not sell it on or use it for unethical reasons. I may have to share it if my notes are subpoenaed by court, if you or anyone you tell me about is at harm or risk of harm I may have to pass this information on. I also have regular Supervision where I talk about my work but I only use your first name.

How will I store your data?

It is mainly stored as hard copy in a locked filing cabinet. Initial data is kept on a 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 for and how will I dispose of it?

I will keep our session notes with your initials for 2 years.

I will shred this and any other document with your personal information after that .
