DATA PROTECTION

Access to the information held by Libra Counselling on it’s clients: Compliance with the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) (EN) 2016/79. Under the terms of the GDPR we are required to inform you, as a client, of the data we hold which identifies you personally and whether and how this is accessible to you. 

The information we hold is kept confidentially, and is only accessible to the people who need to know in order for us to run the service, i.e. Counsellors and/or Reception staff. All members sign a Non Disclosure Act (NDA) upon joining Libra Counselling & Training. Any breach of this NDA, is reported.

The records we hold on individual clients are in three parts:

1.Clients approaching us are asked to provide names and contact details.

2.Initial notes taken by the Counselling Coordinator, which are assessed and passed to the Counsellor.

3.Counsellors normally keep confidential counselling records which are only accessed by them. These notes are their thoughts, understanding, perceptions and feelings on the sessions they undertaken with you and are used as memory aids by them.                         


Your notes will be held by your counsellor and these will be securely held for approx seven years to meet insurance guidelines. They will then be appropriately disposed of by the counsellor. Any request by a client to see these notes should be made to:  The Counsellor Assessor, info@libracounselling.co.uk

Libra Counselling & Training will then make contact with the counsellor. Any request by any other person (e.g. family member or outside bodies) will be refused unless we have your permission in writing to release such information, otherwise it is only if a court order has been issued that these records would be made available.

All information regarding your identity will be held in the strictest of confidence at all times.
