CAYP Psychology keeps confidential records and statistics about the people who use the service. We collect anonymous information about who looks at our website, who contacts us via our Live Chat and via our telephone number. We don’t know any names or addresses unless you provide these, but we can see your approximate location (e.g., Bury, Gosforth, Tonbridge, Ayr, Burton-upon-Trent or Aigburth) and how you got in touch.

All our records are kept securely, and are only seen by CAYP Psychology staff

These records are subject to the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR)

Some of this information is classified as ‘personal data’, and can can only use such data where we have your explicit consent. If you haven’t been asked about us using your data, we won’t be using it.

Confidentiality and Privacy

CAYP Psychology is an independent and confidential form of support. We hold information about the people we work with and the work we do together in confidence. This means that we will not normally share your name or any information about you to anyone outside of CAYP Psychology, not even with your GP, school or other services.

However, there are exceptional cases where CAYP Psychology might ethically or legally have to give information to relevant authorities. For example, if we had reason to believe that someone, especially a child, is at risk of harm, or to prevent a miscarriage of justice. 

We will discuss any proposed disclosure with you unless we believe that to do so could increase the level of risk to you or to someone else.

We do offer online appointments, which should take place in a private setting in order to ensure confidentiality. Our online sessions will take place via Zoom video conferencing, using the appropriate levels of encryption and password protection. However, the nature of working online means that we are not able to guarantee complete confidentiality under all circumstances.

Further information about online security in the UK can be found on the Information Commissioners Office website: https://ico.org.uk/for-the-public/online/
