This information remains secure and confidential and will not be shared with any individual or organsiation with the following exceptions:
Information may be shared if you, the client, specifically and in writing request that it is shared
Information may be shared if required by and legally demanded by the Courts of Justice of England
In addition, anonymous information about specific client cases may be discussed with a coaching supervisor in the course of coach supervision or continuing professional development. In those instances, the information is not attributable to any client and no written record that can be traced to an individual client is kept.
If at any time you have questions about our practices or any of your rights described below, you may reach our Data Protection Officer (“DPO”) by contacting us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
What information do we collect?
We collect information so that we can communicate with you and continue to provide the services which are covered by our coaching agreement. Much of what may be considered to be personal data is collected directly from you when you:
1. Make initial contact to request a callback or to request an initial consultation
2. Complete and sign a client coaching agreement
This information typically includes:
Date of birth
Additional information is specifically collected when you:
3. Communicate through email or text (SMS) message to request, confirm or change or cancel an appointment
4. Communicate through email or text (SMS) message to give or receive coaching related personal information that relates to or is in addition to or is separate from information shared verbally in a coaching session
Information is also recorded when:
5. You arrange to pay by bank transfer – bank details, reference and payment amount
6. When your coach raises an invoice payment
Finally, information is created when:
7. Notes are made by your coach during a coaching session – these are usually handwritten and not stored digitally/electronically
In exceptional cases you may specifically request, in writing, that your coach passes information to a 3rd party – such as an insurance company, employer, other therapist
