This is collected through a form during your first session. Throughout the course of your session the therapist will keep case notes. This information is kept only as a paper copy and stored in a locked filing cabinet belonging to each individual therapist and no therapist has access to any filing cabinet not belonging to them.

We do not store any information in a digital form except for contact details which are stored in our respective password protected devices in case we need to contact you about changes to session times or dates.

The therapists will keep this information for 7 years from the date of the last session for an adult or up to the age of 21 + 7 years for a child or for 15 years rather than 7 in the case of a child or adult who lacks capacity. After this time your information will be destroyed.

Who will this information be shared with?
