Your privacy is important to Inner West Psychology. This privacy statement provides information about the personal information that Inner West Psychology collects, and the ways in which Inner West Psychology uses that personal information.
Here at Inner West Psychology, our psychologists will collect and record information about you during consultations to help the therapy process. This information is either securely stored electronically or in a file, and is always password protected or locked away.
Information relating to electronic transactions entered into via this website will be protected by encryption technology.
During your treatment, with your permission we may write to or contact other health professionals involved in your care, such as your GP, to help with your progress. If you have been referred by a GP it is standard practice to write to that person after your 6th and 10th session.
With your permission, we may use your contact details to send you information about certain services related to your treatment, to send you invoices and collect payments from you.

All the information recorded about you is strictly confidential within Inner West Psychology. Sometimes we may seek advice from other psychologists in order to provide you with the best care possible. Various cases and forms of treatment may also be discussed for the purpose of ongoing education, but all identifying information, such as your name, will be kept strictly confidential to ensure your privacy.
Sometimes, to ensure the safety of all concerned, we are required by law to act upon any issues regarding your safety or the safety of others, particularly when children are involved. Inner West Psychology may disclose your personal information to the extent that it is required to do so by law, in connection with any legal proceedings or prospective legal proceedings, and in order to establish, exercise or defend its legal rights.
