Privacy Statement

This is to inform you what data Breakthrough Hypnotherapy is collecting from you and what we intend to do with it.

What data does Breakthrough Hypnotherapy keep and why do we need it?
Name and age – this is basic information that helps your Breakthrough companion get to know you.

Address, email address, phone number – Breakthrough companion uses this as a way of contacting you regarding your sessions. They will mainly use the method you first contacted me on but if I cannot reach you, they will try a different method.

Next of kin/medical professional’s details – If your Breakthrough Companion was worried that you were at risk then they may need to contact your next of kin or medical professional, if they can. Your Breakthrough Companion will let you know when/if they are going to do this.

Session notes – Your Breakthrough Companion keep brief notes of our session(s).

Will Breakthrough Hypnotherapy share your data and if we do, who will we share it with and for what purpose?
It is very unlikely that Breakthrough Hypnotherapy will share your data. We will not sell it on or use it for unethical reasons. We may have to share it if our notes are subpoenaed by court, if you or anyone you tell me about is at harm or risk of harm, we may have to pass this information on. We may also discuss your case during supervision but only your first name will be used.

How will Breakthrough Hypnotherapy store your data?
It is mainly stored as hard copy in a locked filing cabinet. Immediately after the work is finished, your Breakthrough companion will transfer the data to a password protected computer. Your phone number(s) may be kept in the Breakthrough Companion’s business mobile phone with your first name and last initial. Only we will access your information.

How long will Breakthrough Hypnotherapy store your data for and how will we dispose of it?
Breakthrough Hypnotherapy will keep your details and session notes for the time required by my insurer (currently 7 years).

After this time we will destroy any document with your personal information and delete your phone number from the Breakthrough Companion’s business mobile phone.
