Privacy Policy

- I am the Data Controller, which means that only I have access to the information that I keep. I am registered with the ICO (Registration Number ZA261231) and I am GDPR compliant.

- I keep your personal details (name, address, phone and email contact information and GP details) in a lockable filing cabinet, together with your signed consent form.

- I keep anonymised factual notes of themes covered and/or session content separately as an aide memoire.

- I am required by my insurers to keep my client records for seven years after the end of counselling, after which time they will be securely destroyed.

- We may have email contact, and if so your email address and copies of any emails we may have exchanged will be on my server.

- Your phone number is stored along with your Christian name on a (non-smart) phone so that I can remind you about our sessions and we can let each other know about any delays and/or cancellations. I may also contact you by text about any missed payments.

- The information that I store will not be shared with third parties, unless there is an immediate risk of harm to self or others, or I am required to breach confidentiality by law (eg, terrorism, drug money laundering or via court order for disclosure). In such a case, every effort would be made to discuss this with you first.

- As a Senior Accredited Counsellor/Psychotherapist with the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy I work within their Ethical Framework for the Counselling Professions. You can see the framework and the BACP complaints procedure at
