Ethical Policy



CONSENT

I hope to offer you choice and control in the way your data is used. You are invited to consent to me keeping specific data. Consent is not a precondition of the services I offer. You can withdraw consent at any time, without detriment.


NOTE KEEPING

When we are in a Coaching relationship, I will discuss with you at our first meeting what you are comfortable with in terms of me keeping process notes. After our contract has ended, if you would like me to, I will shred and dispose of this confidential material as per our agreement.

I keep minimal content notes which I hold for seven years. After this time frame, they are disposed of securely.

You have a right to see the information I hold about you should you wish to. You have a right to change any information which you consider to be incorrect.

Though there are some details I need to keep for legal and professional obligations, you can ask me to delete all/any of the information that I hold by emailing me.

I occasionally use creative interventions, but any drawings or art done in session is yours. I will store this material safely and dispose of it in a timely manner and never use any of your data/artworks for writing, publishing, research or training purposes without your written consent.


DATA STORAGE

I promise to keep all sensitive data safely. This involves my anonymising, using passwords and encrypted documents. I keep all written notes in a locked document store and dispose of them after seven years. No one but myself, as data processor and controller in my practice, has access to the information gathered and held during our work together.

While we work together, I store your name, phone number and email address in an encrypted database, which is protected by a password. When we discontinue working, I retain your name, phone number and email address, together with the location, starting and ending dates of our work together in the same protected environment.

I do not store any of your personal details on my mobile phone other than your telephone number. I only contact you in response to you or concerning appointments. I do not engage with clients through any social media without their consent.

When I share client material or images this is always done with the client's permission, confidentially, protecting your identity.

Every step is taken to ensure GDPR standards are met.


ETHICAL POLICY

Coaches are accredited, qualified and subscribe to a code of ethics, we will:
  • Act within applicable law and not encourage, assist or collude with others engaged in conduct which is dishonest, unlawful, unprofessional or discriminatory.
  • Maintain throughout the level of confidentiality which is appropriate and is agreed at the start of the relationship.
  • Disclose information only where explicitly agreed with the client and sponsor (where one exists), unless I believe there is convincing evidence of serious danger to the client or others if the information is withheld.
