Frequently Asked Questions
Following the history and assessment sessions I will have a better idea and we will discuss your treatment plan together. Your progress will be reviewed at regular intervals so that together we can evaluate how you are progressing and make sure you are getting what you want from therapy. It is normal to experience ups and downs in your EMDR journey, and at times you might feel like you want to quit if it becomes too challenging or you feel your progress is too slow. At these times it is important that we keep talking.
When we first meet, I’ll request some personal details, such as your contact details and a few key things from your personal history, and I will record some information about each session you have. I won’t share your data with anyone else without your consent. The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) gives you the right to privacy with your personal information (data). I work within the GDPR to ensure that your personal records are kept securely and destroyed when our work ends. Under the GDPR, you have the right to withdraw consent to use of your data, or request access to, rectification of, and erasure of these records.
If you think your data rights have been breached, you are able to raise a complaint with the Information Commissioner (ICO). You can contact the ICO at Information Commissioner’s Office, Wycliffe House, Water Lane, Wilmslow, Cheshire SK9 5AF or by telephone on 0303 123 1113 (local rate) or 01625 545 745.
