I am registered with the information commissioner's office (ICO), what information do I collect and what do I intend to do with it.
What information do keep and why do I need it.
On our first meeting, we will go through a contract where I will get you to fill
* Email address,
* Phone number
* Next of kin
* Doctors name and number
This information is also a way I can contact you if I have to cancel a session, but I usually contact you using the details that were used when you contacted me unless you tell me otherwise. I would only use the emergency contact if you were ill in the session.
How long do I keep these details?
I have to keep these details for 7 years, this is the time frame set out and maintain due to the professional body, British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP) but any emails will be deleted and your number in my phone.
You have the right to request to see, amend or destroy any data I may keep about you. I will respond to any such request made within 14 days.
