Your place to be heard

Do you feel stuck? Lost? Depressed? Anxious?


1 in 4 of us will experience mental health difficulties each year. Every one of us can experience hard times in our lives. If you are reading this and you are considering counselling or psychotherapy, then please get in touch. 

 

Welcome...

Hi, I'm Sally. 

You may be reading this as you are finding aspects of life difficult at the moment. You may feel as though you are struggling with uncomfortable thoughts or certain circumstances. Maybe you can't pinpoint what you're going through; you just know you need some support. 

I am able to offer you a safe space to explore what is happening, in order to understand why you feel the way you do and achieve your personal and professional goals. 


I personalise my work with you to provide tools to support you to work through the difficulties you are experiencing.

Privacy

I am registered with the ICO (Information Commissioners Office), which means I need to tell you what data I am collecting from you and what I intend to do with it.


What data do I keep and why do I need it?

  • Name and age – this is basic information that helps me get to know you.

  • Address, email address and phone number – I use this as a way of contacting you regarding your sessions. 

  • GP Details – if I was worried that you were at risk, then I may need to contact your GP. If I can, I will tell you I am going to do this.

  • Session notes – I keep very brief, anonymous notes of our session.

  • I store your data on a password protected document within a password protected computer. My mobile phone is password protected.


Will I share your data and if I do, who will I share it with and for what purpose?

It is very unlikely that I will share your data. I will not sell it on or use it for unethical reasons. If I believe you, or someone else is at harm, I may have to share your details with other professionals such as your GP or emergency services. I will always try to discuss this with you first.  


How long will I store your data for and how will I dispose of it?

  • I will keep your session notes, your name and your unique code for 7 years, in line with my insurance terms and conditions. After 7 years, your notes and information will be shredded (if paper form) or deleted (if electronic).
