UK Counselling Services

How much personal information must I provide? How will be secured?

Unless your counselling is being funded through an insurance provider, very little personal information is required. For purposes of my indemnity insurance however I need to know your name, telephone number and an address at which you can be contacted.

If you are attending as a couple, it may transpire that some written work is done during our sessions together. Any document produced as a result of this work will only be kept during our work together, and you are free to have it at the end of your counselling. I do not take contemporaneous notes of sessions, and therefore there will be no long term records of our discussions unless I have been specifically requested to do so at the beginning of our work together.

All information will be kept in a secure facilities and is held for 6 years following termination of your counselling.
