GDPR Guidelines

 

Data is collected for the purposes of maintaining client contact and ongoing therapy.  In line with GDPR guidelines any email addresses, telephone numbers or other personal information will be stored only for clients who are entering into a Therapeutic Agreement, and for the period of the therapy.  On completion of therapy, any digital details stored will be deleted, however therapy notes must be stored for a period of 5 years which follows ethical guidelines and adheres to professional insurance requirements.  These notes are minimal and will be stored in a password protected digital document with a client ID number rather than your name, to maintain anonymity and confidentiality.  Hand-written notes will be stored in a locked cabinet.  At the end of the five-year period following therapy, all data will be deleted or destroyed.

 

In the event that you decide that your contact information should not be stored, this may impact your eligibility for counselling as contact information is a requirement of the therapeutic agreement and to arrange ongoing treatment.
