Data We Hold


We hold your name, mobile contact, address, and other information regarding your physical, mental, and social status. You will have given these details to us, when you attended the centre for your initial assessment. At that meeting you will also have signed to agree to therapists at EDCC, liaising directly with your GP.

Very brief factual accounts of each therapy session are kept by psychotherapists. These notes are the property of EDCC and are kept in secure filing cabinets. Only psychotherapist (and on occasion the clinical manager) will have access to this information. In accordance with our professional governing bodies, all clinical files must be kept for seven years. At the end of that year all information is shredded.

EDCC does not store any of your information electronically.
