As a professional registered with multiple bodies I am held – and hold myself – to a high level of professionalism and confidentiality for all of my clients, and anyone who enquires about working with me.

Your rights, your personal data and your privacy are paramount.

I adhere to professional standards, to GDPR and to a code of conduct which means that your information is protected.

This information is never shared with anyone outside of our sessions and is kept securely and password protected outside of our sessions, and cannot be accessed by anyone else.

The only time I may share information from what is discussed in our sessions is if I believe that there is any immediate danger to you or to anyone else, if I believe there is a risk to any children, or if there is any suspected criminality. In these circumstances I would discuss this with you.
