When you make an enquiry:
When you contact me, I will hold any personal data you have given me (in the form of the email you sent or your phone number if you call me). I hold this for the purposes of offering you counselling and in a secure manner, on password-protected electronic devices. If we do not go on to work together, this data will be deleted within a year (I hold onto it for this period in case you decide to enquire about therapy again). To further protect your privacy, I advise you keep any electronic communications with me to straightforward material and we can speak about more sensitive information over the phone or in person.
If we decide to work together:
In our first meeting I will go over the counselling contract with you, which has full details around record keeping, confidentiality and data protection. If you would like any details about this in the meantime, please do get in touch.
