What personal data we collect and why we collect it
Visitor comments are not permitted on this website, and so no personal information is or has been retained.
Upload of images and other media has never been permitted.
Previously, the contact form was used only to make an initial contact and valid email addresses used only for contact and direct correspondence with clients.
The page that you are navigating to or from may at some point be saved in cookies. Cookies may only be used for the purposes of site navigation. This website uses the WordPress platform, and defaults are set to using text in the URL for navigation instead of cookies, but future security updates to WordPress may change this behaviour.
Embedded content from other websites
Previously, accreditation logos were included from the National Counselling Society and Hypnotherapy Society, and these logos were served up by those societies. As I am now retired I can no longer include those accreditation logos so they have been removed, and as a result there is no longer any embedded content from other websites.
