General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) legislation has come into force: this provides strict guidelines relating to personal data and how privacy is protected.

In accordance with GDPR, I would like to reassure existing and potential clients that I take the gathering, handling and storage of personal data very seriously, as I always have done.

As part of the first session, I ask for certain basic personal information from a client including name, address, contact details and date of birth.

During the first and subsequent sessions, as the client shares details of their particular issues and answers questions I may ask, further personal information is gathered, and this is kept on the client’s confidential file.

This information helps to shape the therapy sessions, based on hypnotherapy and associated processes.

I keep client files safe and secure, and all data is kept completely confidential, as it always has been.

No client data is ever passed to any third party, unless there is a legal requirement to do so.

Client files are usually kept for a period of seven years from the last appointment, and are then securely destroyed.

Clients may ask to see their files at any time and I am happy to do this.

If any data in the file is incorrect, it will be corrected immediately.

Please feel free to contact me if you would like further information:
