PRIVACY

Your Right to Privacy

Privacy and confidentiality in counselling and psychotherapy

I am fully registered with the Information Commissioner's Office under the Data Protection Act. Any data held about you is stored in a secure location and never shared with any third party. The only exception to this would be if it's needed to protect you or others, and then only after I have fully discussed this with you. 

I will not contact you on any telephone number, or at an address if you have explicitly asked me not to. No information about you or your therapy would ever be shared with an employer, even if you are referred to me by one.

All discussions in counselling and psychotherapy are confidential, although there are some legal exceptions that will be explained at your first meeting. I follow the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy’s published code of professional ethics.

No information is gathered through the use of this website that can identify visitors to the site. Anonymous visitor statistics are collected to measure the level of site traffic and the usefulness of the counselling and psychotherapy information contained here.

If you have any concerns or questions regarding privacy or confidentially please email me.
