Who we are
What personal data we collect and why we collect it
Only the data necessary to enable the arrangement and completion of the agreed work will be collected. This will generally include contact information, address and GP details to ensure effective and efficient psychological practice. Routine outcome measures are also regularly used to collect additional information on the current presenting problem to enable appropriate work to be completed.
Information you submit via contact forms may be used to respond to your enquiry. This information will be stored securely, treated in confidence and never passed on to third parties. It may be retained as part of an ongoing business relationship to facilitate the planning, delivery and general communication about therapeutic services as appropriate. Where there is no on-going therapeutic or business relationship the information will be deleted after a maximum of 12 months.
Embedded content from other websites
Articles on this site may include embedded content (e.g. videos, images, articles, etc.). Embedded content from other websites behaves in the exact same way as if the visitor has visited the other website.
This site tracks, and maintains for reference, logs that show the general movement of visitors around the site, including how they found it and how long they spent here. This information is used to improve the site – for example, making it easier to navigate or providing more of the type of things that people like to read. It does not have the capability to track an identifiable individual visitor, and it does not collect any details about visitors that could identify them – IP addresses are recorded, but no more than this. In particular, it does not not collect or keep email addresses from general users.
