In my practice, I care about the safety and privacy of my clients.
Read the terms and conditions below to find out how I deal with your sensitive data and how I protect you all throughout our relationship and beyond.
Privacy and confidentiality
For proper support, it is necessary that I, as your therapist, maintain a client file. Privacy is therefore very important to me, and I do my best to ensure it. I handle your personal information with care and ensure that unauthorized persons do not have access to your data. As your therapist, I have sole access to the data in your file. I have a legal confidentiality obligation (professional secrecy), meaning that no confidential information will be divulged to third parties without your explicit consent.
Confidentiality will only be broken without your consent in the case that you show a significant risk for self-harm or harm to others, in which case I am legally obliged to notify the necessary authorities of said risk. The data from your file can also be used for the following purposes: To inform other healthcare providers, for example when the therapy has been completed or when referring to another practitioner. This only happens with your explicit permission. For use for observation by another therapist, during my absence or for the anonymized use during peer evaluation.
Your contact information such as email address, phone number are used in the sole purpose of contacting you.
The data client file is retained for 15 years as required by the law on the treatment agreement.

The website uses functional “cookies” (text files placed on your computer) to make the website function correctly.
In my practice, I ensure full compliance with the GDPR. This means you have the right to view, correct or delete any and all data I have relating to you following a written request to do so. You also have the right to withdraw any permission you granted regarding the use of your personal data.
