You can engage me with confidence
Embarking on therapy shows great strength and courage but it requires significant trust in your therapist, in a way and to a degree that you may not have experienced previously. In that context, you deserve to know that your trust has a sound basis.
My past, current and potential clients can all take comfort from my being professionally regulated, DBS vetted, comprehensively insured and registered for data protection purposes.
I am registered member 381834 of the ‘British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy’, operating in full compliance with its rules.
Under those rules, I am supervised by an independent practitioner that I meet fortnightly.
I hold a verifiable ‘Enhanced’ DBS certification (dated 14th Jun 2022), enabling me to work in all clinical settings in the UK, including those involving children or vulnerable adults.
My business insurance covers a range of risks (up to £5m) including malpractice and public liability.
I am covered regardless of whether I work from a clinic, from home, or visit a client's home or business premises.
The policy is provided through ‘Holistic Services Insurance’, a trading name of GINS Limited registered in England and Wales as company number 6387110; authorised and regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority (registration number 475577).
I adhere to the UK’s prevailing data protection legislation, including the General Data Protection Regulation (EU/2016/679) (the GDPR), the Data Protection Act 2018 and the Privacy and Electronic Communications (EC Directive) Regulations 2003.
For legal purposes, I am the Data Protection Officer for the personal information I store about clients. I am registered as such with the UK’s Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO) and comply with its data handling requirements.
