As part of your assessment I will ask you for some information which I will record. This will include your name, date of birth, address and the name of your GP. I will also record some information about your reasons for attending hypnotherapy/mindfulness sessions with me. This will include a medical and social history and information about your current issue.
I will store this information in a paper format in a secure filing cabinet which only I can access. I do not store email addresses or telephone numbers on a database. This information will not be shared with any third parties unless I feel that you or someone else is a risk of harm and I need to share the information with relevant parties for your safety.
I am required by my insurance company to store your records for 7 years following the last occasion on which treatment was given. In the case of minors the records will be kept for 7 years after they reach the age of majority (18 years).
As part of your treatment I will need to contact you by phone or email.
