Any personal data provided by you to The Mind Sace Place (‘TMSP') through any means will be held and processed in accordance with the data protection principles set out in the Data Protection Act 2018 and the General Data Protection Regulation for the purposes for which you have given consent, to provide the services you have requested and to meet the legitimate interests of the TMSP.
Information about you
When you enquire about receiving services from the TMSP we ask for contact details and relevant personal information from you in order to answer your enquiry. This data is stored securely for as long as is required to establish contact. Should you not wish to engage in counselling with TMPS, your details will be removed.
Should you wish to engage in counselling with TMPS further personal details may be required in order to set up your booking or arrange a suitable appointment. This information includes contact details, your availability and other relevant personal information and will be stored securely for five years after your final session or last contact with the TMSP.
In order to work ethically, your counsellor may collect more personal information in the form of clinical details and keep separate, confidential notes of your sessions and will ask you for your consent to do this. These notes will not contain your name or any personal identifying information. Your counsellor will store these notes securely for five years after your final session after which time they will be securely destroyed.
