In accordance with the Data Protection Act 2018, your permission is needed for us to collectand keep any personal data whether by manual or electronic means. So that your counselling or therapy runs smoothly and you can be contacted if necessary, the service needs to collect and process personal data. Some of the information we may collect is classified as sensitive personal data and we can only use such data where we have your explicit consent. Your personal and sensitive personal data will only be used in order to provide the service to you and for managing and quality assuring the service. We, therefore, request that you sign below giving us the necessary permission to keep such data as you are willing to disclose and for confidential records to be kept about your attendance and counselling. This in no way affects the confidentiality of your counselling. The only time this would be compromised is when the safety of you or someone else has been identified as a concern.
Counsellors keep notes to ensure continuity in the counselling process, but these are confidential to each individual counsellor, and are securely stored and will be kept for seven years and then destroyed.
