Privacy

Data Protection Act

Any personal details I keep are stored securely. Under the terms of the 1998 Data Protection you must give your consent to such information being made and retained. By signing this agreement, you are giving such permission.

Confidentiality

As a member of the General Hypnotherapy Register (GHR) I abide by their Code of Ethics. Everything discussed between us is kept confidential.

The exceptions to this are:

·       I believe you or someone else is at risk of serious harm

·       I hear of harm or child abuse

·       I am ordered by a court of law

·       I become aware of an act of terrorism 

At our initial session I ask for the name & practice of your GP. If I believe you are at the risk of harming yourself I will consider contacting your GP. I would make every effort to discuss any concerns with you first.

In accordance with clinical practice I discuss my work with a counselling supervisor. My supervisor is bound by the same code of confidentiality and ethical framework.
