Privacy Policy


With regard to each of your visits to our site, I do not collect any information from visitors and the only reason that it leaves cookies (small text files) on your computer is because it has been created in WordPress.

The website contains links to other Internet sites of interest, which are outside our control and are not covered by this privacy policy. Once you use these links to leave our site, I cannot be responsible for the protection and privacy of any information which you provide through any such linked websites. Please exercise caution and look at the privacy statement applicable
to the website in question.

In accordance with the Data Protection Act 2018 and GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation), this Privacy Policy explains what personal data I collect from you and how I collect, store and use it. 


I will keep your information safe in a locked filing cabinet or electronically protected with a password. Your data will only be used for administrative purposes, such as arranging appointments or cancellations. 


Everything we explore in our sessions will be treated by me confidentially. However, if I believe that you intend serious and imminent harm to yourself or others, I might break confidentiality. I will discuss this with you first.
I have the legal obligation to break confidentiality if you disclose drug-trafficking, money-laundering or terrorism.


As a member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy I meet regularly with a supervisor and a peer group for ongoing professional development. This is an ethical requirement. I will keep your identity anonymous in these meetings. My supervisor as well as my peer group members are also bound to uphold confidentiality by the BACP Ethical Framework. 


I usually do not take notes about our counselling sessions. In cases I do, I will keep them secure and destroy them after each supervision session. You have the right to ask in writing for a copy and/or request that your data is deleted/destroyed. Your personal information will be destroyed when you have ended your counselling process.


If you have any questions about my Privacy Policy, the information I hold on you, please do not hesitate to contact me or discuss it in a counselling session.
