Please take a minute to read through this statement of legal and ethical requirements of practice regarding data protection and transparency of information storage and usage. I will ask you to sign a copy of this, along with the counselling agreement if your child decides to work with me.
Secure storage and sharing your personal data
Your personal information is stored securely and confidentially, either electronically, using codes with password protection or in paper format, which is stored in a locked cabinet. The data collected is used to enable effective communication during the therapeutic process, it is used in a safe and ethical manner and is in line with EU General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR) May 2018.
I only use your and your child’s data in relation to delivery of my services, and do not use it for marketing purposes. In the event of my death or becoming incapacitated a member of my family will inform my clinical supervisor in order to enable my supervisor to contact you re my situation and discuss further steps.
It may become necessary to share your and your child’s data with a third party if I feel your child, you or someone else close to you, is at risk of significant harm. Unless the risk is imminent, this will be discussed with you before appropriate disclosure. I do have a legal obligation to break confidentiality in compliance with a court order, concerns over child protection and information or knowledge regarding fraud, drug trafficking or acts of terrorism.
Your contact details are held securely for up to 1 year after your child’s therapeutic process has ended and session notes will be held securely and confidentially for 5 years after the therapeutic process has ended, at which point they will be deleted or destroyed accordingly.
