All the details you need to know

Data protection and privacy/confidentiality

Our sessions are fully confidential, but should you tell me you want to harm yourself or if you feel threatened by someone else, I will need to breach the confidentiality by informing a third party such as your GP or the police. I will always let you know should that be the case.

I take your privacy seriously and comply with the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) (EU) 2016/679. Under the GDPR regulations I am allowed to collect information about you upon the legal basis of ‘legitimate interests’ for the purpose of healthcare. Your information is stored safely. I may use this information to track the progress of our work and to help me to discuss our work with a clinical supervisor for reflection and guidance. I will always ask for your consent if I want to discuss our work and share your information with my clinical supervisor.

Crisis Intervention

I do not provide a crisis service, please find below services that can help you should you feel in urgent need of support.

In the UK:

If you are concerned about your mental health, please contact your GP. Please note that I am unable to provide emergency support. In case of an emergency or if you feel suicidal and do not think you can keep yourself safe, you should visit your local A&E Department. You can also contact the Samaritans Helpline on 116 123, text “SHOUT” to 85258 or visit https://giveusashout.org.
