Data Protection and Privacy Policy

Maintaining safe protection and privacy of personal information is a vital part of my practice. This document describes my data protection and privacy policy, in line with good practice and relevant legislation, including General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR) 2018

I collect and keep some personal information from my clients. The purpose of this is to record who I am seeing and ensure that I am practicing effectively and am able to communicate with clients as necessary for our work. I keep our contract, brief notes of our sessions, your contact details (name, address, phone number, email address, relevant emails and messages as recommended by professional bodies and insurers.

I take the following measures to ensure your information is stored securely:

There are limits to the protection of private information where disclosure is legally mandated and/or concerns of child protection and significant risk of harm to self or others.

In the unlikely event of a personal data breach I will inform you as soon as possible, record it and report it within 72 hours to the relevant supervisory authority.
