Lawful Basis for Holding and Using Your Personal Information

The UK GDPR states that we must have a lawful basis for processing personal data. Different lawful bases depend on the stage at which we process your data.

The types of information we collect are:

  • Contact Information: Your name, address, email address, phone number, and emergency contact details.

  • Personal Information: This includes information about your medical history, mental health condition, and other personal details required for therapy services.

  • Communication Data: Information related to your communications with us, such as emails, messages, and session notes.

  • Website Usage Data: When you visit our website, we may collect data regarding your IP address, browser type, and device information for analytical purposes.

The UK GDPR also ensures that we look after any sensitive personal information you may disclose to us appropriately. This type of information is called 'special category personal information'. The lawful basis for us processing any special categories of personal information is for providing health treatment (in this case, therapy) and a contract with a health professional (in this case, a contract between your therapist and you).

How We Use Your Information

Under the UK General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), the lawful bases we rely on for processing information are:

  • Your consent: You can remove your consent at any time. You can do this by emailing

  • We have a legal obligation.

  • We have a legitimate interest: If you have had therapy with us and it has ended, we will use legitimate interest as our basis for holding and using your personal information.

  • Therapy Services: Your personal information is used to provide therapy services, including assessment and treatment, all of which remain private and confidential. and are not shared with any third party.

    • Please be aware that your therapist may break this confidentiality if they believe you risk harming yourself or anyone else. We will always try to speak to you about this first unless safeguarding issues prevent this. 

    • Your therapist may keep written notes of each session. Any email correspondence will be deleted after six months if unrelated to your treatment. 

    • Once therapy has ended, your record will be kept for seven years from the end of the contract and then securely destroyed. If you want this information deleted sooner, please get in touch with us.

    • In order to provide safe and ethical psychological treatment, it is required for clinicians to engage in clinical supervision. Within clinical supervision, your therapist may share aspects of the work that you are doing together with another clinician, who abides by the same professional ethical code. However, no identifying information will be shared, and you will remain anonymous. 

  • Billing and Payment: We process your payment information for invoicing and processing.

  • Communication: Your contact information is used to communicate with you about appointments, session reminders, and other therapy-related matters.

  • Quality Improvement: We may use some basic information you provided to assess and enhance the quality of our therapy services.

How We Store Your Personal Information

We will record your details to help the therapy services run smoothly. Your therapist may also keep electronic notes. These are all held securely, using end-to-end encryption, and are not shared with any third party.


When therapy concludes, your personal information will be retained securely as required by law and ethical guidelines. Your records will be kept for seven years from the end of the contract and then securely destroyed. You may request the removal of specific information, and we will comply with applicable legal obligations.

Any email correspondence will be deleted after six months if it is unrelated to your therapy.
