Practice Privacy Policy

Why do I collect personal data?

There is a normal set of documents that need to be stored when running a business; emails, notes, contracts, etc. , for me to work efficiently and ethically. All of your data will be deleted after 5 years.

What data do I store?

Emails and notes are encrypted, and password protected. If you decided to work with me then I would also store your client detail form and take brief session notes after each session, to help me follow and remember our work and your journey.

Where do I keep it?

Your data and session notes are stored on my work devices which are encrypted and have passwords to access the devices and documents.

Who do I share it with?

I will never share your data with anyone unless I believe you or another person’s life is in serious danger or I am legally required to by Scottish and English Law. I value your autonomy and our relationship, and I will always try to discuss the matter with you first.

Anonymised data is shared during my regular individual supervision. 

How long do I keep it for?

I am required by my insurer to hold records for 5 years after our last contact. After this time all data will be deleted.
