I have a dedicated therapy room at my home in Hanwell. My art studio is also at my home and I offer paintings for sale, work to commissions, and classes in both art and craft. My Commissioned work helps people to connect to their highest wisdom, intuition and true self.

What is personal data?
Personal data is information relating to an identifiable person. Examples include an individual’s name, address, contact details, but also age, date of birth and gender.
Personal data may contain information which is known as special categories of personal data. This may be information relating to, and not limited to, an individual’s health, racial or ethnic origin, political opinions, religious or philosophical beliefs, trade union membership, genetic and biometric data, or data relating to sexual orientation.
Personal data may also contain data relating to unspent criminal convictions and offences. For the purpose of safeguarding and processing criminal conviction and offence data responsibly, this data is treated in the same manner as special categories of personal data, where we are legally required to comply with specific data processing requirements.
Collection of personal data
For Therapy Clients I record your name, date of birth, and contact details (address, telephone number, email address)
Plus all relevant medical information or details of our discussions pertinent to the issue you are coming to me about. I record notes for all your appointments.
For art and craft students I have your contact telephone number and email address.
For Art Clients where you are commissioning a painting I have the full name, D.O.B for persons that you have requested a painting for. Also your contact phone number and email address.
I collect and record data that you have given me from email and phone, from my website and when we are working together in a therapy setting.
How I use personal data or / why do we need your personal data
I have a professional and legal obligation to keep an accurate record of my interactions with my therapy clients. I record notes for all our appointments to report on the concern(s) we address and log treatments given.
I require client contact information, so I can send appointment reminders, advise any appointment changes, and pass on information relevant to particular clients resulting from the work done in our session.
I require the full name and DOB of people for whom I am creating a commissioned painting, as that is how I energetically connect to them and receive what I need to paint. I also retain record of who I have painted for as part of my accounting records.
I hold the contact details of those who have commissioned work in order to be able to notify you when I have completed work and wish to send it to you plus check that you received it.
For art and craft class attendees I hold contact information to send out, updates and reminders on when classes are to be. I may also send out information on where and when I am taking part in exhibitions or markets to student and people who have commissioned work from me in the past.
Clients and students can contact me on
