The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is concerned with the personal information about you that I collect, store, and share. This page details my GDPR policy.
I seek a monthly professional supervision with another therapist qualified in this process, this is in line with my professional requirements of supervision with the BACP. This process is for my practice (rather than seeking instruction regarding my work with you.). In order to protect your privacy, I will refer to you by your first name and I may refer to your information verbally when it's helpful to my professional processes.
Your name and contact details will be shared with my Therapeutic Executor. This is so that you will be contacted on the event of my death.
If your health is in jeopardy (provided I have your consent) I may share your contact information with an emergency healthcare service (e.g. Mental Health Crisis Team).
When we have finished working together, I will erase electronic copies of your information & correspondence within one month. I will hold onto your written information for up to three years past the end of our working together. This is so that I have a reference of our work in situations such as you returning to counselling in the future. After this time has passed, I will shred all written information.
NB: A copy of this statement will be issued to you on our first meeting, either in person or by way of email.
