Legal

I am a UK resident and practise under English jurisdiction even if I may not always be present in the UK for your online sessions. I work with clients both in the UK and overseas. UK insurers will currently not insure UK therapists to work in Canada and the USA.

I take great care to provide you with a safe, ethical and professional service. In the unlikely event that you want to make a complaint, we would use the BACP complaints procedure, and in all cases any complaint or legal situation would be considered within the UK legal jurisdiction through the UK courts.

I have an enhanced DBS (Disclosure and Barring Service) Certificate.

I am a member of The British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) and The Association for Counselling and Therapy Online (ACTO). I abide by their ethical frameworks and guidelines.

I attend clinical supervision on a monthly basis to ensure I am working safely, ethically and in your best interests. While I do discuss my work with my supervisor your identity will always remain confidential.

In terms of the Data Protection Act 1998 and GDPR 2018 I am a Data Controller and registered with the ICO (Information Commissioners Office) Registration Number : ZA309986.

I have professional indemnity Insurance with Oxygen Insurance.
