Your name, postcode, telephone number, email address; plus, the package you have signed up for and the and dates we have worked together will be kept.
I also take notes through our session which help me to provide the right treatment for you, these are based on our discussion and my observations and are kept in line with professional guidelines and privacy requirements for up to 8 years.
