How your data is collected, stored and used when you work with me:
The data I collect from clients is as following: name, age, postal address, email address and telephone number. In the case of young people I will also ask for parent/guardian’s name, address, email address and telephone number. I collect this information for the purposes of contacting you (if necessary) throughout the time we are working together. I will also collect: date of birth, GP name and address, medical conditions relevant to therapy, and prescribed medication. I collect this information for health and safety purposes, so that I am aware of any relevant issues, and so that I may work as effectively as possible with you. All data is stored securely and confidentially and used in a safe and ethical manner, in line with British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy regulations and guidelines. It will be stored for 7 years from the date of your last session, with the exception of young people, in which case it will be stored for 7 years from the date of their 18th birthday (I am obliged to do this under the terms of my insurance). It will not be shared with other people without your consent, except in circumstances in which I am required to by law (eg acts of terrorism). You have the right to ask for a copy of your personal information, free of charge, in an electronic or paper format, which I will provide within one month of your request. You also have the right to ask me to amend or change any incorrect information about you. You have the right to ask me to erase any information that I hold about you. This includes your personal information that is no longer relevant to original purposes, or if you wish to withdraw consent. In all cases and when considering such requests, these rights are obligatory unless it is information that I have a legal obligation to retain. As the client, you have the right to receive your personal information which you previously provided, and also have the right to transfer that information to another party. For the purposes of the General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR) 2018, the data “controller” is Lisa Murphy.
