Information Collected by Online Contact Forms

This information is collected for the purpose of responding to enquirers.   I may use the email submitted to send future communications for the purpose of following up on enquiries. Additional information you provide may be used in your therapy sessions where appropriate.  Contact details are used for these purposes only and are never shared with any third parties.

Information Collected During the Initial Consultation

Information shared with me at the initial consultation or in subsequent conversations or therapy sessions is kept safe, secure and confidential at all times.    Information shared during appointments is not kept electronically and is used to help me in providing treatment for you.

Anonymised data is used for practice management and to ensure treatment standards are maintained.  This includes but is not limited to age, gender, symptom(s) treated, treatment modalities, number and outcome of therapy sessions, method of referral.

Sharing of Information

I do not share personally identifiable information with any third party, except where I am required to do so to comply with any applicable law, to process transactions (e.g. payments), to enforce our site policies, or protect my or others’ rights, property, health or safety.

Storage

I maintain industry standard security software to protect electronically held information and secure storage facilities for hardcopy records. All security and privacy policies and practices are periodically reviewed and enhanced as necessary and I alone have access to the information.

I am required to keep treatment records for ten years (or five years after the age of 18, whichever is the later).  After this time, all information is securely destroyed..
