GDPR: A guide for therapists

Unless you’ve been under a rock for the past few months, you’ll be aware that changes are afoot in the data protection world.  Your inbox is probably full of emails from organisations using various catchy phrases to get you to “opt in” to receiving communications (my favourite was headed “darling you’ve got to let me know, will you stay or will you go?” – who said data protection couldn’t be fun?!).  But what is GDPR and what does all this mean for you as a therapist?
