The privacy of your personal data is important to me.
When working with me you will be asked to provide personal information. Your records will be stored securely on a password protected filing system and held for up to seven years.
The information you provide will not be shared with any third party other than my therapeutic executor. This exception is so in the event of an emergency occurring to me, you can be notified. No details relating to your sessions will be disclosed.
In giving consent for me to hold your information, you will continue to receive relevant information and communication from me. Please note you have the right to withdraw consent to me holding your information at any time.
Additional information about how I might use your data
I may use the data you provide to assess, measure and make improvements to my services. This might include information about the nine protected characteristics outlined in the Equality Act 2010.
Case studies and marketing
On occasion, if receiving funding from benefactors or organisations, I may need to provide anonymous case studies about my work with clients. I may also need to provide case studies as part of my ongoing training and professional development.
When required to write a case study, no details included would make it possible for the individual to be identified. If it was believed that an individual could be identified from a case study, consent would be sought before use.
Clients are also invited to share testimonials, which can be used for the purposes of promoting my services and work. All testimonials are used with permission and clients are also given the option to remain anonymous.
Sharing information with other organisations
There may be occasions during our work together, when getting extra help might be useful. In situations where we believe it may be good for you to get support elsewhere, I might share your information for the purpose of making a referral.
This would always be done with your knowledge and consent.
